Busta Rhymes emerged as one of the most idiosyncratic personalities of rap's golden era with his halting, ragga-inspired style and lyrics defined by incredible complexity, inventiveness, and humor. After rising to prominence with his group Leaders of the New School, Busta broke out solo in 1996 with a massive hit single, "Woo-Hah!! Got You All in Check." Throughout the '90s and 2000s, he was a force to be reckoned with, topping the charts with his albums and even debuting at number one in 2006 with his seventh studio album, The Big Bang. Busta is a 12 time Grammy Award Nominee and has won multiple awards over his career including Billboard Music awards and BET Hip Hop awards.
