Busta Rhymes Would Gladly Trade Rap for TV Career

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?

    He should just retire…Period.

    I’m so over that homophobic clown. He probably wants to get into “acting” now that he knows he’ll never sell records like he used to anymore.

    Man, some haters in these comments. I’m not from up north and would never consider living up there, but Busta is one of the sickest rappers there is period. The stuff he’s been putting out recently is still shittin on everyone else, so its not his fault if records dont sell… The music industry is changing, if you haven’t noticed. Hollywood money and TV money is where its at anyway. Go get Busta!

    The best rappers turn actors in my opinion are Will Smith Queen Latifah Mos Def and that Raz guy I forget his name but I feel these few rappers turn actors are leggit. I guess Ice Cube and LL are ok but Ice T is terrible along with the rest of the wanna Bees
