Bust a rhyme

2010-11-19 00:00

HIP-HOP legends, Busta Rhymes and T-Pain will be performing live in Durban at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre from 6 pm on Sunday, November 28.

As one of hip-hop’s most enduring iconic figures, Busta Rhymes is also acknowledged as a great lyricist and performer.

The singer recently signed to Universal Motown and his first album with the new label, Back On My B S, is scheduled for release on December 9.

Universal Motown president Sylvia Rhone said: “It’s a rare and wonderful opportunity to be able to sign an artist who is at once a musical icon while remaining completely forward thinking. Busta is a true original and one of modern culture’s most gifted voices and charismatic characters. His role in hip-hop history is enormous, and his new music ranks among the best work of his career.”

In between making albums, Rhymes entered the acting arena starring in John Singleton’s hit movie Higher Learning (1995). He later teamed up again with Singleton and starred along side Samuel L. Jackson, Vanessa Jackson and Christian Bale in the remake of the 1971 classic Shaft (2000). Also in 2000 Rhymes starred with Sir Sean Connery in Finding Forrester, and in 2002 with the ‘queen of horror movies’, Jamie Lee Curtis, in Halloween Resurrection.

Joining him on stage at the ICC will be T-Pain, whose bright, polished arrangements have become the in-demand sound across genres, while his scene-stealing vocal performances are among the most coveted in music.

Since bursting onto the music scene in 2005, T-Pain has been awarded a Grammy, produced and written a plethora of chart-topping and platinum-selling singles, garnered songwriter of the year and producer of the year honours at the BMI Urban Awards and earned a BET Award.

The two American superstars will be supported by Durban’s multi-award winning kwaito sensation, Big NUZ, featuring the king of Durban house, DJ Tira, and Durban-based RnB singer-songwriter, Verd.

Tickets for the concert, which has been organised by Shabach Concerts, can be booked through Computicket. To keep updated on the show log on to Facebook.
