Video: Busta Rhymes feat. Big Tigger – If You Don’t Know, Now You Know

I miss Rap City with Tigger… he even made 106 half-watchable.

Directed by Aristotle & Thi Chien. Back On My Bullshit, in stores now.

Well I came up for the concept for the song “If You Don’t I Know Now You Know” I told Busta about it bout 2yrs ago. About a year ago Busta wakes me up at 2 in the morning like “Yo we need to do the song” and I’m like “What song?” He’s like, “The song you told me about”. So now I’m waking up and he’s like “Yo, I’m done with my album but I don’t really have that joint. I need a concept record. Nobody really does concepts anymore”.

So the basic concept of the song, if you haven’t heard it you need to go get Back On My BS, is as I’m interviewing Busta I’m rhyming the questions and he’s rhyming the answers. So I asked him if there was anything he didn’t want me to ask, anything I shouldn’t talk about and he said “Nah, go in and let me be the one to pull you back”. So I had my producer Chris Marles from my radio show write me out a bunch of questions and I put some of them in rhyme format for him. After I sent the questions, Busta said, “Yo I’m going to send you the track, you can’t let nobody hear to the track” “Why Busta?” I asked, “Dr. Dre did the track”. So I get the track and it’s crazy. I write the whole joint out and I even wrote some of Busta’s answers- like the back and forth conversational part. Then there’s a phone call from two ladies which was actually done by Alicia Renee. Shout out Alicia Rene aka AR15, that’s her rap name now.

So I wrote 75% of the record, sent it back to him and he loved it. He filled in his spots, sent it back and I touched it up a little bit. We just shot a video for it the other day. I wish I could show it to you but it’s not my project so it’ll come to light whenever Busta says so.

    Ohh, i guess i missed that vid…

    I don’t really listen to Wale like that, not taking anything away from homie but i guess i just haven’t been bit by that bug yet.

    I definitely rather listen to Drake then Wale, no shots to the avid Wale listeners.

  86. Big_Seth Don't Idolize America Says:

    Just because Wale said he don’t sing isn’t necessarily hating.

    It’s like Jay saying he isn’t animated like Busta Rhymes. It’s just now what he does.
