Busta Rhymes has nothing but respect for 50 Cent, whose work ethic he has praised as incomparable to any other.
The ex-Leader of the New School stopped to chat with popular radio host Big Boy on Thursday (February 8), where he showed Fif some love for a variety of reasons.
"Big up to 50 Cent for bringin' us out there on his Final Lap tour," he said. "Not only was that probably the most incredible tour that I've ever been on, and I've been on many. I'm saying that because every night, every arena was sold out."
He continued: "I've never been on a tour for five months. [...] My last show was November 21. He's still on that same tour. 50...that's one thing. He don't play with that work."

This isn't the first time that Bussa Buss has voiced gratitudefor his time on the Final Lap tour.
During an event for his new album Blockbusta back in November, he credited the Power executive producer for helping him lose nearly 40 lbs., thus regaining his formerly svelte physique.
"I'm sexy," he began, which drew a laugh from the crowd. "I lost 37 pounds on that fuckin' tour. I wasn't asking if y'all thought I was sexy or not, I just wanted you muthafuckas to understand I'm sexy, period."
Busta Rhymes recently opened up about his weight loss journey in an interview with Men's Health, whose Hip Hop 50 issue he covered alongside 50 Cent, LL COOL J, Method Man, Ludacris, Common and Wiz Khalifa in August.

The 51-year-old recalled having breathing difficulties after sex with his partner one night, which motivated him to shed the weight and get back into shape.
"I was trying to inhale, and it felt like it wasn't working. I felt like I was having like an asthma attack - but I don't have asthma," he said. "So I walked out of the bedroom and went into the living room, and I was forcing myself to inhale, to relax."
He continued: "That was scaring me so much that it was a mindfuck, because I had to stay calm and make sure she didn't hear me panic or hear me struggle to breathe. I'm butt-ass naked in the living room, trying to calm myself down."
