South African rapper Anatii is currently celebrating his recent success, as his career reaches new heights following his contributions to Busta Rhymes’ latest album, “Blockbusta.” This talented artist stepped into the limelight when hip-hop legend Busta Rhymes showered him with praises for his outstanding work on the American rapper’s album, which was released last November.
Anatii proudly shared a video from a Los Angeles event, capturing the moment he mingled with Busta Rhymes and soaked in the acclaim for his remarkable musical endeavours. In the video, Busta Rhymes exclaimed, “To everybody, please look at this man, his name is Anatii from Johannesburg, Africa.
This record on my album with me, Chris Brown, and Shenseea, he produced it, I said he produced it!” The crowd erupted in applause as Busta Rhymes continued, “So I want y’all to make some noise for this incredible king. Thank you so much for your significant contribution to this amazing body of work called BLOCKBUSTA.”
In the caption of the video clip, the Saga hitmaker admitted to having a good time and riding the wave of success following his contribution to Busta’s album. “My life has been a block busta lately,” Anatii said, clearly revelling in his achievements.
Speaking about the production of the album, Anatii revealed that Busta called him during a time when he was going through depression and lacked inspiration to make music, especially during the COVID-19 lockdown.
“I had the honour of producing ‘Open Wide’ for my favourite rapper of all time, the Dragon. At a time when I was feeling alone, borderline depressed, and uninspired, Busta texted me one early morning, asking me to call him regarding one of the records,” Anatii shared.
It’s incredible how a simple phone call can change the course of someone’s life. Anatii’s story is a testament to the power of connections and the impact one person can have on another’s journey. Busta Rhymes recognized Anatii’s talent and allowed him to shine on a global stage.
