Busta Rhymes went viral Tuesday over a resurfaced clip of his anti-mask tirade, during which he blasted “little weird-ass government policies.”
The “Break Ya Neck” rapper shared his political message in June during a break from his set as the surprise headliner at the Seoul Taco’s 10th anniversary block party in Missouri.
“This is my second show in front of human life in the last 15 f–king months,” the 49-year-old told the cheering crowd. “COVID can suck a d–k. All these little weird-ass government policies and mandates [can] suck a d–k.”
Busta, whose real name is Trevor Tahiem Smith Jr., further claimed the government was trying to “take our civil liberties away” by forcing people to wear masks.
“It’s called the God-given right of freedom, right?” he continued onstage. “No human being is supposed to tell you that you can’t even breathe freely. F–k your mask. … Some of y’all might feel differently, but f–k your mask.
