However, the esteem that Busta Rhymes enjoys is not confined to the corridors of New York alone. His longtime friend, Funk Flex, boldly stated that Busta Rhymes could outshine even the legendary Jay-Z in a Verzuz battle. Flex asserted that Busta would embarrass Jay Z. "You want me to tell you who would beat JAY-Z at a Verzuz? Hands down embarrass him?" Funk Flex said. "Busta Rhymes would spank anybody in a Verzuz. There is no one that will beat Busta Rhymes as a solo artist in a Verzuz... Maybe it could be a tie with Missy [Elliott]." This endorsement further solidifies Rhymes' iconic status and enduring impact on the world of music.

As far as what's next for Rhymes, he has a new project on the way. His eleventh studio album is set to arrive at some point in the near future. He took to Instagram in May of this year to announce the news, but didn't offer a title or release date yet. However, Busta has confirmed the album is executive produced by a star-studded lineup of luminaries such as Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, and Timbaland. Stay tuned to HNHH to find out more.
