Busta-a-Bust is okay with rap, but he’s really diggin’ on an acting career:
BUSTA RHYMES would jump at a chance to pursue a career on the small screen – and would happily hang up the microphone if he was offered the big bucks to swap rap for TV.
The Touch It hitmaker, real name Trevor Smith, is an avid follower of actor Hugh Laurie’s medical drama House and the hit crime series CSI. The hip-hop star has tried his hand at acting with small roles in films like Shaft in 2000 and 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection, and admits following in Will Smith’s footsteps and landing a role in a TV series would be a dream come true.
He says, “Yes I would (pursue a full-time TV career). I’m a big fan of House. I’m a big CSI: Miami fanatic. “And they pay good. The Will Smith money is still crazy, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and all that. I got to know about what that syndication money look (sic) like.”
Smith started out his acting career in the popular comedy The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air before catapulting to superstardom with roles in blockbuster movies like 1996’s Independence Day and Men in Black in 1997
Sh*t, with those record sales looking the way they are, this is hardly a surprise. Busta Rhymes has definitely had some decent performances over the years, so how do you all think he’d fare as a full-time actor?
