Busta Rhymes And Hip-Hoppers Venture To See Fela On Broadway

(AllHipHop News) The Hip-Hop community has fallen in love with “Fela!” again.

The play, which is backed by Will Smith and Jay-Z, celebrates the life and times of legendary Fela Kuti, a Nigerian musician and composer, activist, and political rebel.

Busta Rhymes recently attended a show and met with member of the cast afterwards.

“The Fela play is unbelievable, mind blowing, and very informative and bone chilling. Most importantly, very entertaining, and I will be going to see it again before it leaves New York, ” Busta Rhymes told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

Other Hip-Hop artists have continued to extol the play which is on a limited run in New York until August 4. It initially ran on Broadway in 2009 and was met with rave reviews.

Other members of the Hip-Hop community have also visited the play. Questlove of The Roots continuously praises “Fela!” through his various social networks.

“I witnessed a miracle tonight,” wrote Roots drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson after seeing “Fela!”

Others still are rumored to be working with the musicians of “Fela!” in a number of Hip-Hop album efforts.
