When the Hot 97 concert, “Hot For The Holidays”, advertises Busta Rhymes and Friends….you had better think long and hard about who his “friends” may be. If you have been listening to our show, you know that Leaders of the New School have been in the studio. You also know that A Tribe Called Quest was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. These are all things that should have been considered when wondering if one should attend “Busta Rhymes and Friends”.
I am one of those people who will show up to see a concert with all possibilities running through my mind. I will consider every person that has ever performed with the artist, every friend that I know that they have, anyone who could possibly show up during the concert and deliver that “oh shit” moment. Knowing what we know about Tribe and LONS, I would have considered this as an option, but not a realistic one. When I say that I think of all the possibilities, I also take in to consideration the odds that any of those people will show up. Normally, those odds are astronomical and more of a dream than a possibility. THIS show, turned out to defy all odds. If you had tickets to this show, you no doubt experienced that “oh shit” moment. For those of us who weren’t there…we will have to be happy with the video.
