In[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Busta Rhymes[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chris Brown[/lastfm]‘s new Hype Williams-directed video for “Why Stop Now,” the video starts with a quote by Greek philosopher Sophocles.
It includes a dark, perhaps post-apocalyptic city covered in what looks like giant locusts as Busta gets crowned while sitting on a throne of gold lions and “busts” rhymes so deep that it seems like he’s going to have an aneurism.
Oh, and Breezy is shirtless for most of the video.
[pullquote quote="He knew that that was the most perfect thing to use for me when we first worked together because of the dynamic of my animation."]According to Rap-Up, Busta only had kind words to say about working with director Williams. Mostly he just bragged about how he got to use a fish-eye lens and Kanye and Jay-Z didn’t.
“That interaction has always been the primary source of why our chemistry has always been so special,” Busta said. “He wouldn’t give Kanye West a fish-eye lens, he won’t give Jay-Z a fish-eye lens. That’s my sh*t. He knew that that was the most perfect thing to use for me when we first worked together because of the dynamic of my animation.”
