Busta Rhymes was recently interviewed by MTV at the VMAs and explained how he was able to get members from both Young Money/Cash Money and G.O.O.D Music together for his new single “Thank You” off “Extinction Level Event 2”.
Despite many conflicts involving members from both camps, Rhymes was able to film a video for the single with both camps on Saturday, August 27, 2013. In his interview with MTV, Busta expressed what it meant for him to connect both labels:
“There’s been a lot of talk over the last year or two about conflict between G.O.O.D. Music and Young Money and Cash Money,” Busta Rhymes said in the interview with MTV. “I just wanted to put it to bed and create an eventful moment where me and (Lil) Wayne being Young Money/Cash Money on one team, Q-Tip and Kanye (West) be on another movement on G.O.O.D. Music, just showing that camaraderie and that alliance and just making it official on a real Hip Hop level.”
Bringing both labels together was a big step for Busta because members of both camps have had numerous feuds in the past. G.O.O.D Musics own Pusha T, for example, was involved in a vendetta with YMCMB’s Lil Wayne. In 2012 on his “Goulish” track, Wayne says , “Fuck Pusha T and anybody who love him, His head up his ass, I’mma have to head-butt him..”
Wayne also took shots at Kanye and his “Watch The Throne” colleauge, Jay Z at a pre- Grammy event.
“I met a bad red bone, I took the b*tch home/ I asked her what she want to watch, she said, ‘Surely not the Throne,”
Busta’s song and video featuring both camps is a sure sign of peace slowly coming amongst the labels.
