Coco Jones Thought Busta Rhymes Was E-40 At Roc Nation Brunch: "Mortified!"
This is a story that many would have never shared, but Coco Jones doesn't have issues with laughing at herself. The R&B crooner is shaping up to be the music industry's next "It" girl, and it's well-deserved. Jones isn't a stranger to the Hollywood spotlight, as her talents are long-established in the Disneyverse. However, the 25-year-old is ready to take the world by storm as a Def Jam hitmaker-and she's well on her way. Jones was among a select few invited to this year's coveted Roc Nation Brunch, but she admitted she caused an embarrassing moment with one of the Bay Area's finest.
The singer shared her funny-yet humiliating-story with The Breakfast Club. Last year, Jones went viral after she appeared on Wild 'N Out. While there, Chico Bean challenged her to rap Busta Rhyme's quick-rhyming verse on "Look At Me Now" with Chris Brown. Chico and Coco impressed a global audience, and Bussa Buss, with their skills. Understandably, Jones was excited when she saw him at the brunch...or so she thought. "I gotta tell y'all a story, you're gonna scream, laugh, and cry," she told The Breakfast Club.
Coco Jones Mixes Up Her Rappers
"Basically, Lord, when I was at the Roc Nation Brunch, I saw Busta Rhymes," the singer said with a laugh. "So, I go up to him and I'm like, 'You had just seen my cover, my freestyle of my thingabob on Wild 'N Out.' And he was like, 'Yeah..." DJ Envy interjected to say that Busta didn't attend the Roc Nation Brunch. Jones replied, "Listen! I was like, 'Remember?'" And then she said she began spitting Busta's "Look At Me Now" verse right then and there. "He was like, 'That's good shawty. That's good.' I was like, 'Alright.'" Jones left the moment confused.
Then, she went over to her manager for clarification. At the same time, she's looking up the lyrics to "Look At Me Now" because she thinks she might have delivered the lyrics incorrectly. She sees Busta's photo and asks her manager who she was just talking to. "Girl, that's E-40," Jones said her manager told her. "I was like, 'Oh. No.'... I was so mortified! Y'all! I felt real bad."
All Cleared Up
Jones also stated that later, E-40 hit someone up and said, "I think Coco thinks I'm Busta Rhymes." However, the singer's manager cleared up the entire thing. We're unsure how, but it makes for a story we would have kept in the vault. Check out Coco Jones spitting Busta Rhymes bars and being a good sport by laughing at her mistake above.
