The big homie: Busta Rhymes

Next to Flava Flav there is no better hypeman than Spliff Star. Busta's best friend brought an energy that even the rapper couldn't top. Aside from Spliff's supporting role on stage, his best work was as Busta's co-star in game-changing videos. Would a joint like “Dangerous” even be viewed as a cinematic classic if it weren't for Spliff's brilliant portrayal as the villain? And he showed his worth back in 2008 when he was arrested for doing what weed carriers do: He got bagged in Sweden when police found an uncontrolled substance in his hotel room after a Busta show. The two remain friends which goes to show that a true sidekick never gets envious and always plays his role. Salute. —Angel Diaz
