Nobody does real talk like Reggie Ossé a.k.a. Combat Jack. The former rap industry attorney, media executive, author, and Internet radio talk-show personality now hosts The Combat Jack Show, where hip-hop's biggest names are put on the front line. The questions will be tough—and shots will be fired. Co-hosted by Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, and Just Blaze, The Combat Jack Show appears every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday on Complex TV.
In this episode of The Combat Jack Show we spotlight Busta Rhymes. Throughout a career that dates back to the '90s Busta has been a part of some iconic records in the past like the remixes to A Tribe Called Quest's "Scenario" and Craig Mack's "Flava in Ya Ear" alongside The Notorious B.I.G. Jumping on the same song with incredible artists like this can be intimidating for some, but not for Busta. "As far as I'm concerned, I'm nicer than everybody," he says. "I dont like to just believe that. I like to execute that and display that so that becomes general consensus."
Later on Busta praises newer acts like Action Bronson and Kendrick Lamar for their ability to stay true to their craft. "These dudes is actually doing it the way they want to do it," he says. "They don't give a fuck. I love it so much." Combat Jack asks him how he feels about Kanye West's latest album Yeezus. Busta says the project is a perfect reflection of what 'Ye does musically. "I don't think there's ever been a Kanye album that didn't feel like it wasn't him being honest," he says. "I love his evolution though. He's willing to challenge himself each attempt."
