On the one year anniversary of the death of Violator Management founder Chris Lighty, rapper Busta Rhymes has released a single paying homage to the music mogul.
The song is titled “Chris Lighty” and features reggae legend Bob Marley:
“On August 30, 2012, Chris Lighty passed away. One year later, close friend and former client of Lighty, Busta Rhymes, has released a brand new track in his honor. The song is titled “Chris Lighty” and finds Busta rapping about the impact the Violator owner had on his career and his life. Busta says in the first verse that he wrote the song days after Lighty’s passing, and the visceral pain reflected in the veteran’s voice is a testament to this fact. The song has added vocals from the legendary Bob Marley. According to Busta’s frequent collaborator, Dready, Marley’s vocals come from a never-before-heard second take of Marley’s classic “Natural Mystic.” (Complex)
