In 1990, at the age of seventeen, Busta co-founded the Leaders of the New School, a group highly respected in the hip-hop underground for their Afrocentric philosophy and hard-edged style. As a solo artist for the first time in 1995, Busta's ascent to stardom began with breakthrough guest performances on A Tribe Called Quest's classic "Scenario," a remix of Craig Mack's "Flava in Ya Ear," not to mention a role in John Singleton's film Higher Learning. Signed to Elektra Records, Busta Rhymes first solo debut, The Coming, proved a huge hit with the single "Woo-Hah!! Got You All in Check" which became a Top Ten single. Three more in Busta's epic album series followed which include When Disaster Strikes (which debuted at number three in 1997), E.L.E.-The Final World Front and his most recent platinum record Anarchy. Additionally, Busta Rhymes recently appeared on the silver screen in the remake of "Shaft."
