Busta Rhymes "Get Out!!" (2000)
"Hard Knock Life" was the kind of once-in-a-lifetime smash hit that nobody should attempt to copy. Which in hip-hop means that of course attempts are inevitable. Jay-Z's own Xerox of the formula, "Anything," was saved by great verses, but when Busta Rhymes belatedly looped up some more singing movie children for "Get Out!!" in 2000, the only person we wanted to get the hell out was Busta. Released in advance of his fourth album, Anarchy, "Get Out!!" was a dispiriting fall-off from the MC with a previously unimpeachable run of lead singles that included "Woo-hah! Got You All In Check," "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See" and "Gimme Some More."
