By Novell Zwange – DURBAN – Shabach Concerts and Mr White Productions bring the Busta Rhymes and T Pain Live, for one night only, at The ICC on the 28th of November 2010. This will be the first in a string of international concerts guaranteed to be coming to Durban’s shores over the next year.
As one of hip-hop’s most enduring iconic figures, Busta Rhymes is acknowledged among rap’s greatest lyricists and performers as a hip–hop icon. Busta is a true original and one of modern culture’s most gifted voices and charismatic characters. His role in hip–hop history is enormous, and his new music ranks among the best work of his career.
Few people can accurately say they’ve changed the course of music; count T-Pain among that short list. His bright, polished arrangements have become the in-demand sound across genres, and his scene-stealing vocal performances are among the most coveted in music. Since bursting on the scene in 2005, T-Pain has been awarded a Grammy, produced and written a plethora of chart-topping and platinum-selling singles, garnered “Songwriter of the Year” and “Producer of the Year” honors at the BMI Urban Awards and earned a BET Award. So it should come as little surprise that the musical maestro’s tremendous, self-produced third album, THR33 RINGZ, stands as a sonic odyssey brimming with innovation.
