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.

        Oh I respect him. I just wish all these good MCs would stop making trash music and go back to what made them popular. NONE of them have done it. NONE of them…And in this day and time all they do is let us down, thats why I dont buy any of this sh*t anymore. Cause it aint hot.
