TBT Interview: Busta Rhymes Explains How Diddy and Q-Tip Helped Him Perfect His Sound

Since it’s officially Bad Boy season and Throwback Thursday we figured we would keep the Diddy train rolling.  Last year Sway sat down with rap royalty Busta Rhymes and the outcome was something special.

Always introducing new styles and sounds, Busta took some time to fill Sway in on how Diddy and Q-Tip kept him straight and truly influenced how he makes music with some jokes in-between.
