Busta Rhymes will never stop making new Hip-Hop music. The legendary rapper will never step away from creating new music privately in the studio, even if he decides to stop releasing it publicly later in his career.
“Every good thing comes to an end, but I don’t think I’d ever call it retirement,” he told The Guardian. “I love Hip-Hop culture too much. It has let me see the whole planet. Even if I am not releasing records publicly, I will always record just for me, even as an old-ass man. I love being inside those four walls of the studio.”
The 51-year-old musician, real name Trevor Smith Jr., explained that he uses his time in the studio to escape reality and doesn’t see himself letting that go.
“The studio doesn’t disrespect you or betray you; it is the place I go to escape all of that s###,” he shared. “I can be whoever I want to be in there. I can be Thanos, a dragon, a gentle giant. The passion for rapping continues to burn in my spirit and my soul, so, for now, I am going to continue on this path.”
Busta doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon – he released his eleventh studio album, Blockbusta, in November.
