Rapper Busta Rhymes trended on social media after he railed against "weird ass" government Covid-19 mandates during a recent concert gig.
Busta, born Trevor Smith Jr., expressed his opinion during the Seoul Tacos 10th Anniversary Block Party in St. Louis, Missouri in June.
He noted that "you can't even breathe freely," while wearing a face mask. The rapper also said government officials who try to "take our civil liberties away" can "suck a d**k."
Busta and other rappers hit the road after the CDC announced people who are fully vaccinated can go maskless indoors and outdoors.
"This is my second show in front of human life in the last fifteen f**kin' months. COVID can suck a d**k. All these little weird-ass government policies and mandates can suck a d**k. Stop tryin' to take our civil liberties away. It feels good to be back outside, we outside for real."
"It's called the God-given right of freedom, right?" he continued. "No human being supposed to tell you you can't even breathe freely. F**k your mask. I mean I’m sayin', some of y'all might feel differently but, f**k your mask. I can't rhyme to you with a mask on. We can't eat food with a f**king mask on. We can't even see each other smile with a mask on. I come from a time when before i even used to want to holler at a chick, I used to have to do s**t with my face to let her know that I’m into her."
"All of that energy gets blocked when your mask is on. Energy is important, and we are all conductors of f**kin’ good energy. We also got to be clear when a motherf**ker trying to give you bad energy, you can tell only from the expression on their face. I wanna see the face, f**k your mask. I mean, I'm sorry I gotta go political and s**t, I miss my people, we gotta talk."
