BUSTA RHYMES BEEFS INFO
Busta Rhymes Vs Ja Rule As Busta Rhymes signed to Dr Dre's record label Aftermath, Busta was dragged into the beef that was happening at that time between fellow Aftermath artists like 50 Cent, Eminem and G-Unit against Ja Rule and the Murder Inc Records roster. Ja Rule addressed busta in the song "Loose Change" and also addressed Eminems daughter Hailie claiming she would be a slut when she grew up just like her mother. The Aftermath artists obviously saw this as a cheap and nasty shot by Ja Rule and got everyone in on the next diss song from Aftermath "Hail Mary 2003". It was a scathing attack on Ja Rule and ruder inc over the classic instrumental of Tupac's track "Hail Mary" from his gorund breaking 'Makaveli' album. Busta Rhymes featured in the diss track with an uncharismatic, vicious attack on Ja Rule. The beef since seems to have ended peacefully, after many attacks from both sides, mainly between 50 Cent and Ja Rule however.

Busta on Ja Rule, "Hail Mary 2003": “Hey yo I've been one of the most humble, rep the streets to the core / Hey Jeffrey, What the fuck you come involvin with me for? / It's been a long time comin like a bless and a check / you see 106 and park fans don't even fuckin respect you / Its kinda funny wanna be Pac, wanna fake like like he thug / runnin around talkin shit that he ain't capable ofnow let me OFF this cock sucka watch me handle you nigga / If i recall Violator used to manage you nigga / then took a closer look and

Ja Rule on Busta, "Loose Change": “An' these Fed's can't discuss 'em / cause while he violatin' ?? cryin' bitch to Russell like: / They shootin'...ahh makes ya shook an' got Bus' rhymin' tha same ol' hook. / Like, they shootin'...I ain't shoot up ya land / I'd a put ya in tha coroner van. / Like my nigga J / Tha Vanguish will be tha ghetto car when I clap at ya garage!”
Busta Vs Jay-Z This is and was a pretty low key beef, but it all started in 2003 when Jay-Z raised eyebrows when he said the lines: "I ain't get shot up a whole bunch of times/And I ain't animated like say a Busta Rhymes" on "What More Can I Say" the b side from "Change Clothes," The Black Album's lead single. But he quickly cleared the air when the line started to cause controversy in the hip hop world saying in an interview: "I was surprised because I was talking about the level of energy Busta has on the stage," Jay-Z clarified. "I didn't mean no ill will. Just like my strong point is bringing my reality, he brings that energy. I wasn't trying to diss him. If I diss you, you know it. My disses be clear and they hurt." Bus-A-Bus, assisted by Wyclef released "You're A Memory," a track allegedly in retaliation to Jay's comments. Though the track features no clear references to Jigga, Bus' energetic flow is filled with subliminal shots and threats. However, during a phone conversation with Sway, Bus assured that the record was in no way a Jay-Z diss.

Busta on Jay-Z, "You're A Memory": “Hey dickhead nigga / can't you see? / You's a God damn fool for trying to go against me.!”
