As part of his recent appearance on The Tonight Show hosted by Jimmy Fallon, legendary rap star, Busta Rhymes enjoyed a proud dad moment.

The music icon from Brooklyn showcased not just his talent as a musician but showed the world how talented his daughters are. 

On Tuesday, December 5, 2023, the hip-hop icon delivered a performance of two tracks from his latest album, Blockbusta The Statement and Legacy.

The crowning moment was the inclusion of his children in his performance. In addition, it became apparent that his legacy transcends beyond his illustrious music career, as the stage lit up and the cameras began to roll.

For the rendition of the Legacy track, Busta Rhymes shared the spotlight with three of his six children. His daughters, Cacie (aka CIE) and Mariah (aka Rai), and his son, Trillian, teamed up with him to put up a brilliant performance. 

The collaboration among family members brought an extra layer of meaning to the performance, as it showcased not only Busta Rhymes’ musical prowess but also the harmonious bond between him and his children. 

Also showing up to lend support was his loyal and longtime collaborator, Spliff Star

By joining the family, Star helped amplify the energy and excitement around the performance, and the chemistry between them was clear for all to see. 

It also created a memorable moment that resonated with both the audience at the event and viewers at home. 

The performance by Busta Rhymes, his children, and Spliff Star also highlighted the importance of family and generational skills. 

Before the performance, Busta Rhymes took to Instagram to write: “THE BLESSINGS AIN’T STOPPING SO WE AIN’T NEVER STOPPING!!! @jimmyfallon TONIGHT!!! YOU WILL BE MEETING MY LEGACY!!
