Busta Rhymes Speaks About Working With Gucci Mane On “Make It Look Easy”
Busta Rhymes remembers making Gucci Mane drop a beat on “Make It Look Easy.”
In August, Busta Rhymes and Gucci Mane surprised their fans by linking up together for a track, “Make it Look Easy.” In a recent interview with SOHH, Busta Rhymes explains why he chose Gucci Mane to collaborate with on the track.
Busta Rhymes remembered seeing a lot of New York emcees jump on a Southern-style beat in the past years. He decided to use the same production, but flip over the script by getting a Southern rapper jump on an East Coast beat. Once he was aware of his plan, Busta Rhymes immediately called Gucci Mane to inform him of his plan.
“My thing is we’ve heard a lot of artists jump on Southern productions and I thought it would be interesting if we have a South artist jump on a classic New York production,” he explained. “Gucci Mane is a dope motherfucker to me. I can speak from a personal experience because I’ve seen the brother work in the studio. I’ve seen how hard he works and you can go to a Gucci Mane concert and see how talented this artist is. Getting with Gucci fit with what I was trying to do with this record. I wanted to hear him rock on a record like that. I felt it would be something that’s interesting, entertaining and intelligent for us at the same time because that’s what we’re supposed to do. We’re supposed to challenge each other to bring out the best in each other.”
