Vintage Video: O.D.B + Busta Rhymes’ Impromptu Public Cypher

By the looks of things, specifically Busta Rhymes’ slender build, and the Tommy Hilfiger and Helly Hansen jackets scattered about the audience, I’d say this video is about 20 years old, from 1994-95…  If so, BR unveils a verse that would become part of his famous, hit debut single “Got You All in Check” and continues to freestyle after it’s over.  The vintage nature of the shoot is also evident in the fact that Old Dirty Bastard appears in “Brooklyn Zoo” form, dropping punchlines during his heyday, before going overboard with aliases.. and crack cocaine.

The owner of the video labels it a “battle” when it’s clearly not… but it’s nonetheless rare footage of two now-legendary hip-hop icons still on the rise, entertaining the public at a time when they were hiphop’s next generation…
