Busta Rhymes has found himself in some hot water.
The ‘I Know What You Want’ rapper slammed Covid-19 safety protocols during his surprise appearance at the Seoul Taco’s 10th anniversary block party in Missouri.
His words below…
When speaking to the crowd, he said:
“This is my second show in front of human life in the last 15 f***ing months. COVID can suck a d**k. All these little weird-a*s government policies and mandates [can] suck a d**k.”
He then went on to claim that the government was trying to “take our civil liberties away” by forcing people to wear a mask.
“It’s called the God-given right of freedom, right? No human being is supposed to tell you that you can’t even breathe freely. F**k your mask. … Some of y’all might feel differently, but f**k your mask.”
Despite his comments, he went on to apologize at the end of his set for getting “a little political.”
Busta Rhymes is the latest celebrity to speak against masks. Previously, Noel Gallagher spoke out against them while Carrie Underwood received criticism last week for liking an anti-mask tweet on Twitter.

“Wow Busta Rhymes is on fire 👏🏻 🔥 (strong language)
Musicians. Celebrities. We need more of this, and less blindly towing the line. The choice is yours – stand now or kneel forever.”
