Busta Rhymes is sharing his weight loss history. The legendary rapper appeared in a sneak peek for Monday’s “Tamron Hall” where he shared he had to “duct tape” down his stomach for a music video after gaining weight.
“When I shot that video, there is a scene of me wearing all white with a headwrap, When I initially put that all white on, it showed how badly out of shape I was on camera. So we went into the dressing room and they duct-taped my stomach down. With electric duct tape.” – the Brooklyn legend told Hall.
Busta shared on Instagram, just months later in October, that he was down 86 pounds
“DON’T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!! LIFE BEGINS RIGHT NOW!!! MY DEDICATION IS DIFFERENT!! I WOULD NEVER PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND NOT BE IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!! I RESPECT MYSELF TOO MUCH AND I RESPECT Y’ALL TOO MUCH!!! I’M ONLY HERE TO INSPIRE!!” – Basta wrote.
