Busta Rhymes goes on anti-mask rant

Pass the coronavirus.

Busta Rhymes went viral Tuesday over a resurfaced clip of his anti-mask tirade, during which he blasted “little weird-ass government policies.”

The “Break Ya Neck” rapper shared his political message in June during a break from his set as the surprise headliner at the Seoul Taco’s 10th anniversary block party in Missouri.

“This is my second show in front of human life in the last 15 f–king months,” the 49-year-old told the cheering crowd. “COVID can suck a d–k. All these little weird-ass government policies and mandates [can] suck a d–k.”

Busta, whose real name is Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr., further claimed the government was trying to “take our civil liberties away” by forcing people to wear masks.

“It’s called the God-given right of freedom, right?” he continued onstage. “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.

“We can’t eat food with a f–king mask on,” he said. “We can’t even see each other’s smiles with a mask on.”

The “Make It Clap” rapper went on to blame masks for stifling people’s “energy,” including the vibe he puts out while flirting with women.

“All of that energy gets blocked when our mask is on and energy is important,” he argued. “We are all conductors of f–king good energy.”

Busta closed out his set by apologizing for getting “a little political.”

Some followers expressed their disappointment with Busta’s rant, calling him “irresponsible” for spreading such a message while others agreed with his anti-mask stance.

“Now I’m not gone lie I hate wearing it but it is definitely necessary and I do wear it!!!!!” one Twitter user wrote. “This is very ignorant to say smh especially because like they said he has friends who have suffered from it that’s like a slap in their face.”

“Uhm not to bash on anyone and their opinions but how about you just take care of your body and immune system,” wrote another.
