RRRRRROAW RRRRRRROAW like a dungeon dragon

One of the greatest posse cuts of all time and for as great as the song is, its remix might be even better. This song was the launch pad for Busta Rhymes of L.O.N.S. His off beat flow became a rage and as Busta’s popularity grew he grew bigger than the Leaders and they split up. Busta went on to have a very successful rap career as well as making a very small dent on the Silver Screen as well. But, as I have shown with Tim Dog, this blog isn’t always about the best verses but memorable, or bad or influencing verses. This verse is memorable to me, but as far as being good…I think it sucks. The lyrics are nothing to write home about. Mostly they sound like a drunken nursery rhyme. His unique yet muffled and abstract flow takes away from the overall congenialness of the song. The song itself doesn’t suffer from Busta’s effort; however I just don’t get what the hype is all about!

Watch, as I combine all the juice from the mind
Heel up, wheel up, bring it back, come rewind
Powerful impact BOOM! from the cannon
Not braggin, try to read my mind just imagine
Vo-cab-u-lary's necessary
When diggin into my library
Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!
Eating ayea toadstool like the one Peter Tosh-a
Uh, uh uhh, all over with the track man
Uh, pardon me, uhh, as I come back
As I did it yo I heard you beg your pardon
When I travel to the Sun I roll with the squadron
RRRRRROAW RRRRRRROAW like a dungeon dragon
Change your little drawers cause your pants are saggin
Try to step to this, I will, fits you in a turban
And had you smellin ripe, like some old stale urine
Checkady-choco, the chocolate chicken
The rear cock diesel, buttcheeks they were kickin
Yo, bustin out before the Busta bust a nut the rhyme
the rhythm is in sync (UHH!) the rhymes are on time (TIME!)
Rippin up this dance just like a radio
Observe the vibe and check out the scenario!!
*chorus starts* Yeah, my man motherfucker!

I have always considered Busta Rhymes to be 90% style and 10% substance. He was just this amped-up, gravelly voiced dreadhead who really never said much. For my money, Dinco-D was the best lyricist. C-Brown was good too, but he had that "AAAAH" gimmick, like Akinyele in reverse.

Busta was a great counterpoint to the rest of the LONS, but was never really that great on his own. Granted, he had big success as a solo artist, but I found his music so much less interesting when he was "Busta Buss" rather than the Busta I knew.
