Busta Rhymes is ready for his second closeup. The hip-hop veteran is back in the spotlight and recently shared pictures of his massive weight lost and six-pack abs.
On Nov. 1, he dropped a new video and it’s not just another song showing off his rapid-fire rhyming.
“Master Fard Muhammad” featuring Rick Ross is a message song that pays homage to Nation of Islam founder, the late Wallace Fard Muhammad.
“Master Fard Muhammad” is from Busta Rhyme’s latest CD, “Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God.” Fard Muhammad led the Nation of Islam until he disappeared in 1934. It was at that time Elijah Muhammad became leader of the NOI.
The visuals of “Master Fard Muhammad” focus on a young man who has been through some trauma, Hot New Hip Hop reported. The young man finds solace in the embrace of Ross, Bus, and members of the Nation of Islam as the two rappers drop their bars.
The clip is heavy with NOI images — a troubled youth reading the Quran, a NOI member holding up the book, “Message To The Blackman” by former NOI leader Elijah Muhammad, and a portrait of Fard Muhammad. Interestingly, there appears to be no references to current Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Rick Ross rhymes on the song:
“Master Muhammad sold silks goin’ door to door Givin’ knowledge to the brothers fed who wanted more We a nation of brothers, such a wonderful force Go straight to the Quran if you wanted the source.
“Look at my Piguet, yo, it’s about that time Light sparkle off my jewelry, it’s about that shine Money bust out every pocket, it’s about that grind I school them dudes, especially when a nigga third eye blind,” Busta spits, according to Genius.com.

Busta Rhymes co-directed the video with acclaimed music video director Dre Films (Andres “ Dre “ Alvarez).
The track was well-received on Twitter.
