Busta Rhymes Stuns Fans With Youthful New Look

New York, NY – 

Busta Rhymes has surprised fans by sporting a youthful new look while sat courtside at a New York Knicks game.

Busta attended the Knicks’ 121-91 win over the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday (May 14) and watched his hometown team take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The 51-year-old rap legend posted a picture on Instagram of himself at the game looking remarkably slimmed down and rocking a thicker head of hair.

His glow up didn’t go unnoticed by fans, who flooded his comments section with both surprise and praise.

“Bro looking like teenage leader of the newskool lol,” one fan wrote, while another applauded: “Busta looks so much younger with hair & less weight on em.”

A third user joked: “Bro got his new clone out here.”

Busta Rhymes’ quest to get healthier over the last year has been well documented.

Speaking with Men’s Health last summer, he revealed his 100-pound weight loss was inspired by him suffering a health scare after getting intimate with his now ex-wife.

“I was having a really difficult time breathing, so I got up and I walked out of the bedroom so she wouldn’t panic seeing me trying to keep myself calm,” he said.

“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. 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.

“She was like, ‘Yo, this is not who I fell in love with.’ She didn’t know what had happened outside, but she was looking at my body and the weight.

“She was like, ‘You gotta lose this weight. This breathing is scaring me. When I met you, you wasn’t like a musclehead, but you, you was slim, you was cut, you had your shit right. I need you to get back to who I fell in love with.’”
