Busta Rhymes now resorting to performing for lawyers at legal conferences.

sullysully Posts: 4,588 ✭✭✭✭✭
This week, the American Association for Justice held one of its members-only conventions in Miami Beach, Florida. At the closing of what we’re sure was an otherwise thrilling event, a special guest was pulled out of obscurity to put some flava in everyone’s ears: it was none other than… Busta Rhymes? *record scratch*

Ugh… sigh. You know a rapper’s career is coming to an end when he’s forced to resort to performing for a group of people wearing suits, ties, and suspenders. Next thing you know, he’ll be on a VH1 dating show. But, given his extensive criminal history, he probably owed at least one of the lawyers in the crowd a favor.

Here are some additional details on Busta’s performance from Alex Aldridge over at Legal Cheek:

“Any old lawyers? Any old attorneys? Any old powerful legal representation? Let me show you how to get you guys rollin’!” bellows Rhymes in the clip, before breaking into song.

    I'm not buying this. True enough busta is on the back end of his career, but the article suggested he begged for a spot to perform here. Only in hip hop does unconventional audiences= artist doing bad. The DJ for CPAC (yeah the republican white guys) events is known to spin 2chainz heavy, so does that mean his career is done as well? It is kinda funny though performing in front of some lawyers lol

    It was in a party setting. People from all walks of life party. I don't see any problem w/ taking that money.

    With that said he fell off a long time ago, and that fast rapping shit where you can't understand him is trash.

    If youre an artist and people pay you you do it. you know how many sweet 16s and bar mitvahs destiny child and 50 cent did a decade ago? They weren't on their last legs. And i'm talkng about 50 cent in 2004 get rich or die trying days, doing a show at a ballroom in long island for 150 high school kids.

    If people pay you do the show. period.

    You gotta get that money anyway you can. You only hot for so long. And im sure those rich parents were paying at least 50k. You gotta imagine this lawyer conference in Miami at club Liv, had to pay busta at least 50k. I have no idea how much ppl get for a show like this, i'm just guessing, but I know club Liv isn't a cheap place to rent out, and i'm sure these lawyers are fairly well off. I'd bet he got paid in the 50k-100k range just to do songs for an hour or two, in a nice safe environment.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    I never understood Club Liv's stage. Was that meant to be a stage? If so, I wonder how many drunk ass rappers fell off that narrow shit.
