Busta Rhymes to launch Big Brother Amplified show

Rhymes has been setting the standard as a rapper and hip-hop icon, having collaborated with stars such as Diddy, Pharrell, Janet Jackson, Chris Brown & Lil Wayne, including featuring on Tiësto and Diplo track “C’mon (Catch ‘Em By Surprise). He has also made several appearances on the big screen including roles on Shaft, Finding Forrester and Halloween Resurrection.
His 2006 album, The Big Bang, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. Seen by many as a living legend, the artist most recently formed his own record label, The Conglomerate, which he partnered with his artist, J Doe and Reek the Villain on the soon to be released movie soundtrack of the Fast & Furious 5 “This is How We Roll” (remix). Rhymes continues to cement his position in the industry as one of the most undeniable performers of all time!
