Busta Rhymes Mandate: Kids First!

November 17, 2000 – Sunday may be the day of rest for others, but dynamo rapper/actor/entrepreneur Busta Rhymes thinks it's the perfect day to play and make some dreams come true. Continuing his longtime association with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Rhymes granted the request of a youngster by hanging out with him all evening – before and after a concert at Syracuse University Sunday (Nov. 12). The kid had asked to meet the superstar, but hardly expected to hear a few impromptu raps or be draped with the platinum and diamonds usually around the neck of Busta Rhymes.

"Fatherhood has changed me in so many ways," Rhymes explains. "It's opened my eyes to how important it is to protect and nurture our children because they are who will lead us into the next millennium. I felt blessed to have an opportunity like this to make a child's dream come true. It's the least I can do."

Rhymes was able to schedule the Syracuse concert, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation meeting after completing another present for the children of the world. One can only imagine the manic energy in the tune, "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch," which Busta just completed with actor Jim Carrey for the soundtrack to "How The Grinch Stole Christmas."

Should adults feel left out of the Busta Rhymes whirlwind: Come December, Rhymes co-stars as the older brother to a boy mentored by Sean Connery in new Gus Van Zant film, Finding Forrester. Busta is currently shopping his drama project, Loyalty, which he created and will produce and star in once a deal is completed.
