Busta Rhymes Says He Realized Needed To Lose Weight & Prioritize His Health When His Stomach Had To Be 'Duct Taped Down' For 'Czar' Music Video

Busta Rhymes opened up about about both his incredible weight loss journey and a life-threatening health scare.

In a sneak peak at Monday's "Tamron Hall," the iconic rapper, 48, discussed the moment he realized he needed to transform his lifestyle after drastic measures were taken while filming the music video for "Czar" back in 2020.

"Confession," he began. "When I shot that video, there's a scene of me wearing all white with a head wrap. When I initially put that all white on, it showed how badly out of shape that I was on camera so we went in the dressing room & they duct taped my stomach down."

"I think the real moments that were cutting deep was when I started to hear the conversations from my kids," Busta explained. "The younger one, before he graduated from high school, sometimes when I would come out of the bedroom in the morning & I would put my hand out to give him a dap on the way to the bathroom or something & he would walk past me & instead of slapping me on the hand, he was slapping me on the stomach."

"He didn't mean no harm intentionally," he continued. "It was like him indirectly saying to me 'you got to rid of this gut, pop.'"

Busta would go on to lose 86 pounds, but not before he had a possibly life-saving appointment at a doctor's office.

"I was growing these polyps on my vocal cords, but what was making it worse was the behavior pattern -- the drinking & the smoking & the performing combined," he confessed. "I had to go to the throat doctor because I had to actually travel to Dubai to do a show that Friday. When that doctor saw what he saw, he immediately said 'Oh my god. I have to send you to the emergency room at UCLA Medical & I need you to get in this ambulance that I'm calling for you now.'"

"He said 'These polyps have grown so big that it's now blocking 90% of your breathing passages & if I send you home tonight & you catch a cold, the last 10% of your breathing passages can possibly be blocked by just the regular swelling of a gland or sore throat or just catching a regular cold & you could die tonight.'" #bustarhymes #bustarhymesweightloss #healthscare #weightloss #gym #gymmotivation #neardeathexperience #drinking #smoking #rapper #hiphopnews #rapnews #news #polyps #surgery #hospital #medicalemergency #workout #workoutmotivation #musicvideo #czar #ducttaped
