Let’s be honest, I don’t think any of us necessarily likes wearing masks, social distancing, or having limited spaces we’re able to go to, etc. However, Busta Rhymes has his own theory on the matter and went on an irresponsible anti-mask and anti-lockdown rant during a concert recently.
A video of Busta Rhymes going on a rant against masks and COVID-19 safety protocols is going viral on social media this today, following a recent performance from the hip-hop veteran. During the concert, Busta went off on masks and lockdown mandates, revealing that he believes the government is trying to “take our civil liberties away.” Despite over four million people dying from COVID-19, and some of his peers passing away or fighting serious cases of the virus, Busta Rhymes shared his staunch anti-mask and anti-lockdown views with a crowd of hundreds.
“In the last sixteen fucking months, COVID could suck a d*ck,” he said to the roaring audience. “All these little weird ass government policies and mandates, suck a d*ck. They’re trying to take our civil liberties away. It feels good to be back outside, we outside for real!” The video is presently going viral, despite the rant happening over a month ago at the Seoul Tacos 10th Anniversary Block Party in St. Louis.
“It’s called a God-given right for freedom, right?” he continued, influencing hundreds with his misinformed views. “No human being is supposed to tell you you can’t even breathe freely. Fuck your mask! Some of y’all might feel differently but fuck your mask! You can’t eat food with a fucking mask on. You can’t even see each other smile with a mask on. I come from a time, way before, I used to wanna holla at a chick, I used to have to do shit with my face to let her know that I’m into her. All of that energy gets blocked when your mask is on. Energy is important and we are all conductors of good energy.”
This is not the first time that Busta Rhymes has spread his views on COVID-19, as he has previously come under fire for sharing similar beliefs.
Listen to the rant below, and see a couple reactions. Do you agree with Busta’s conspiracy theory? Are you willing to ignore mandates as a result?

I refuse to watch that Busta Rhymes anti mask/Vax video. Just knowing that he said that dumb shit in front of a crowd of people is enough to shake my head. I'm not surprised tho. It's actually what I'd expect from him on the issue. Doesn't make it any less disappointing tho. pic.twitter.com/IIGAPsaYeo

Confirmed: Busta Rhymes is better when he’s rapping too fast for us to really understand what he’s saying. pic.twitter.com/ZMWdkVNBiK

This is embarrassing. Has Busta forgotten how Covid affected his peers? Scarface had kidney failure due to Covid and had to go on dialysis while looking for a new kidney. https://t.co/uBTYs3pqLz
