Busta Rhymes Broke a Windshield with His Head When He First Heard Eminem

Busta Rhymes gave his MC name a new meaning upon first hearing Eminem.

While on the road for the Smokin’ Grooves Tour back in the late ’90s, the rapper had an unusually strong reaction to listening to the Slim Shady EP: he banged his head so hard it broke a tour bus windshield.

“We were on the Smokin’ Grooves tour in the back of one of the venues,” Busta told Rolling Stone. “Wyclef has this big-ass studio on his bus so we always wanted to go hang out and he was playing the Slim Shady EP. Before I could actually get on the bus, I was standing on the three little steps that you walk up to get on to the bus and I was nodding my head so f—ing hard, going crazy, that I hit my head on the windshield and broke the whole f—in’ windshield of Wyclef’s bus. It f—ed the whole glass up.

“The f—ing shit that I was hearing from him created an animal instinct reaction,” he added. “There was no thought that went into the way I reacted; it was just so powerfully compelling that I just bugged out. And there are very few moments like that, for me, that made me feel like that. When I first heard him, I didn’t know if he was white or black or where he came from. All I knew is what he was making me feel like made me almost push my head through a windshield.”
