To doubt Hes charging 30k a Show is insane.......I remember he got booked in ATL when he didnt have an album or single out....Just remixes and was just starting to really announce the Dilla tape he did and they said it on the radio he got paid 130K for that show...Right now hes on one of the biggest singles out with that Look At Me Now joint....

People forget when youre an icon clubs will pay you 20-25K to just WALKTHROUGH their club for 15 minutes and shake hands with the owner and DJ.....I seen Yo Gotti make 15K for 8 minutes in a club out here in ATL and I couldnt believe it...He literally walked in...Got a drink, got in the DJ booth an headed to Onyx to throw that 15k at strippers....

Celebrity means everything when you got a good management team and this guy has one of the best. People have come & gone but Busta and Snoop have remained on the airwaves when others cant even buy a deal at Koch/E1.

SMH at some of the kids on this site thinking they know half of what n*ggas are making and/or getting.



We booked Travis Porter for 8k just last April for a show(I got pics and video, I can prove it lmao).......Right now they'd laugh at me for that price.
Everything said here...


I bet the same people doubting also doubt that Lil Kim gets paid handsomely for shows.. Kimmie might not be the same person she was, but best believe club owners still remember how she had sh*t on lock in the 90's & partially in the early '00's. Icon's get all the cheddar.

That's why you start seeing them not puttin out albums like that anymore. Why you think they say this album is for the fans everytime one of them decides to make a comeback album or just make a album in general? They don't need the fans support at all, it's all a front so the fans don't have to bi*ch about not having a album. They could just retire on shows & touring for the rest of their life & put out a single whenever they feel like it.

First, I seriously and I mean seriously doubt Busta is charging $30,000 a show. Unlike some rappers out here cough***Drake***cough that don't even have a catalogue or pot to p!ss in when it comes to their catalogue, Busta literally got hits... after hits... after hits and that can't even be disputed, because when you at a club whether urban or upscale, chances are you're going to hear his sh*t. Even on his albums that he has not been at the top of his form, that n*gga can off with a good a.ss single and guess what??? Still touring as if he was relevant. In conclusion... you got it be naive, clueless, hating or stupid to believe that he don't make that much money.

Last... "Before money became the thing nig*as was really able to capitalize on, the respect of the bars and the punchline and the metaphor was what gave you your rank in the street. And that competitive nature is what warranted and commanded whatever you could receive in return."

That sh*t is the truth... because during that time, hip hop was at the top of it's game. Rappers weren't being praise on dumb sh*t like image, or how much money you got... it was simply about whether you can spit and who was kicking the nicest and hardest and hottest sh*t out there. It was about muthafu*kas putting out quality albums and making sure they weren't dropping garbage. Hell, anybody that sounded wack or had no talent, couldn't make it no matter who you fu*k with. Today, can any of this rappers say that??? Are they even putting any effort or thought or creativity into the music? From that era that Busta came off, countless legends and geniuses came out. If you were a hip hop fan growing up or just young listenig to this sh*t... it was the best fu*king time ever! It was a musical paradise for the ears and the mind. It was just a great and memorable time for being both young and simply enjoying amazing and incredible music. Damn, when I think about that era, I just get digusted at what I see and hear from this clown a.ss pussies that call themselves rappers! Today, the same music that I love... I fu*king hate! It blows, it sucks and it is just a sad mess to hear. Can we even say that this rappers today are close to being that nice??? Can we honestly see another golden era in hip hop??? Nope... not even the hottest rappers out there can hold a candle to those n*ggas or are even taking the time in doing so. That sh*t indeed is the truth!

when you get about 6 , 7, 8 albums deep

you should be able to cake off touring alone for the rest of your life...

I dont think Busta ever fell off. People dont hear from you in a year or two, they think you fell off. Nah, n*ggas have family and sh*t to take care of. Busta always found ways to stay relevant in the game. If his album wasnt the hottest, you best believe two to three singles off of it was. Go back and take a look at how many other artist songs he k!lled. Too many to count. Ive been to one of his shows about 6 years ago. His concerts are way better than 99% of rappers today.

LOL at the guy who says Touring isnt profitable.....Are you kidding me? Artists dont make money off anything in todays world besides the tour!

Why the fu*k do you think you got n*ggas holding off from signing deals but doing 150+ shows a year?!

I think people just hate the idea of someone doing ANYTHING halfway decent...If this thread was a fail for busta and he was goin broke you all would get your rocks off posting gif's. If this thread said busta inherited 40 billion you'd just go "LIES LIES LIES".

Just cause your life sucks dont mean everyone elses does....n*ggas eatin ,you arent.

dont mention the two together because

twista just rhymes and word that rhymes whereas busta makes sense with rhyming words.
