Busta Rhymes Reflects on Missing Son’s High School Graduation Due to Rapper Duties

Busta Rhymes once revealed he missed his oldest son’s high school graduation because of his obligations as a rapper. 

During an interview on Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning, Busta reflected when he had to suit up and take the stage with Chris Brown to perform their 2011 hit single, “Look At Me Now,” featuring Lil Wayne at a show for BET and ended up missing his kid’s graduation. 

“When me and Chris Brown performed ‘Look At Me Now’ at BET when Lil Wayne did not do it with us, I missed my son’s high school graduation, my oldest son,” he explained. “And I came home from that and he was upset, and Greenhouse was still open. I threw a party for him at Greenhouse and I had Jim Jones perform, and Ace Hood perform, and I performed.”

He continued, “And he was happy about the party but he still wasn’t happy about me missing his high school graduation. I lived with that shit for a long time. And it didn’t matter how much I wanted to say sorry, I knew that it wouldn’t be enough.”
