Busta Rhymes reminisces in new visual for “Deep Thought”
The Benny Boom-directed clip is the latest from ‘Extinction Level Event 2.’
Back in October, Busta Rhymes delivered his ninth studio LP Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God, which saw 22 tracks with additional features from Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, Mariah Carey, Vybz Kartel, Rakim, Pete Rock, Rick Ross, M.O.P., Q-Tip, and more. In addition to its release, the project has also spawned top quality visuals for standout cuts like “The Don and the Boss,” “Yuuuu,” “Czar,” “Master Fard Muhummad,” “Boomp!,” “Outta My Mind,” and “Where I Belong.”
Today, the New York legend adds to that with a new clip for “Deep Thought,” a self-produced effort that seems to find inspiration from Eric B. and Rakim’s classic 90’s cut “In The Ghetto” — another track that sampled The 24-Carat Black’s “Ghetto: Misfortune’s Wealth.” As the title suggests, the track sees Busta in deep reflection about his career, a woman’s affection, lost loved ones, and much more:
“When I’m at home, ain’t no never need for the fronting, my voice going, I’m sounding like a frog, doing shows back to back, partially why niggas reluctant to talk … applying what I was taught to the point if you ain’t right, I will slap you, while becoming your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper, then it all feels like the shit was in vainness, but I’m bringing it harder, losing Chris Lighty and then losin’ my father…”
Co-directed by Benny Boom, the accompanying clip is set a night in a high-rise location, where Busta Rhymes can be seen smoking a joint, enjoying some dark liquor, and relaxing with his love interest as he unloads everything that resides within his mind. Overall, the clip is very simple and to the point, making for one of the best from out of his latest album’s campaign thus far.
