50 Cent has lightheartedly poked fun at Busta Rhymes for his recent risqué onstage behavior while the two are on tour together.
Over the weekend, a video went viral showing Busta engaging in a flirtatious and sexually suggestive manner with an audience member during a performance on 50 Cent’s Final Lap Tour in St. Paul, Minnesota, last Friday (September 15).
In the video, Busta playfully held his microphone near his crotch and made suggestive gestures, all while locking eyes with a fan in the crowd and sticking out his tongue.
He humorously remarked to the fan, “We’re having a good time tonight. I see your enthusiasm for me, baby,” implying that the fan was reciprocating his cheeky antics.
The video created a buzz on social media, with some people taken aback by Busta’s unapologetically audacious behavior. 50 Cent joined in on the fun by sharing the video on his Instagram page on Monday (September 18) and added a playful comment, teasing his friend.
“BUSTA stole this move from me; I used to do this with the ‘Magic Stick’ 10 years ago. LOL,” he wrote in the caption. “Now it just feels dirty, inappropriate, and unnecessary. LMAO, this is giving off vibes like your old uncle at the barbecue who won’t sit down!”
Busta Rhymes took the jesting in stride and responded to 50 Cent’s post with several laughing emojis in the comments section.
This isn’t the first time that 50 Cent has teased Busta Rhymes during their tour. Backstage at a tour stop in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August, the Queens native couldn’t resist poking fun at Busta’s oversized jewelry.
“Tell him his chain is too big!” Fif jokingly exclaimed in a video posted on his Instagram page. “Tell that guy his chain is too big! He has no friends; they’re not telling him!”
Although they enjoy playful banter, at least one of their fellow rap artists hopes to see 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes collaborate on a full-length project. Last month, Waka Flocka Flame took to Twitter to express his desire for a joint album from the two rap legends, stating that the culture “needs” it.
“The culture needs a joint album from @BustaRhymes & @50cent,” he tweeted. “Don’t give us a tired excuse because you’re going on a worldwide tour; that’s too much time, lol.”
While a collaborative album may be a long shot, considering that 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes have only appeared on a few songs together in the past, such as Eminem’s 2003 track “Hail Mary” and the posse cut “Victory 2004” with Diddy, Lloyd Banks, and the late Biggie, fans can always hope for more from these rap icons.
