@ the end of the day….Did Busta and Mystikal make the right choice to join Cash Money?
Busta Ryhmes and Mystikal share many similarities in the world of hip hop. Both have some of the most uncanny cadences on their tracks, and bring high energy to their songs and live performances. They even both share bad run-ins with the law. With all of that in common, they also share something else …both are two of the newest artists signed to Cash Money. Some love it; some hate it. Let’s take a look at both sides of the story.
Many people say this is a great fit for Busta and Mystikal. Cash Money’s spotlight has been bright the past few years and both vets deserve to get their shine on. Busta, known for rapping over any type of beat and having some of the illest flow out there, would fit perfectly with Cash Money’s style. Not to mention the pivotal part he played in mending the East Coast/West Coast feud, which showed that artists on both ends of spectrum can come together in the name of hip hop. Mystikal, a native New Orleanian working with Mannie Fresh on a mixtape, will bring a dash of danger, intrigue and rawness to the Cash Money family. If things work, Cash Money can place themselves to give the push and commercial success that both artists have lacked the past few years.
On the other hand, this could be a disaster in the making. With both artists being veterans in the hip hop game, every move needs to be strategic. It could appear that this move could ultimately move them 2 steps forward to success or 10 steps back to hip hop roadkill. Lyrically both are in the realm of their own but will they be able to stand up with the heavy hitters of today?
