Busta, Kanye, Q-Tip, and Weezy come together on “Thank You.”
We’ve been jamming to Busta Rhymes’ “Thank You” ever since it dropped earlier this month (I mean, that track is pure FIYAH), and now we’re excited to share that Busta’s retro jam has a new music video! And it’s, well, a straight-up, all-you-can-eat hip-hop buffet featuring the best in the biz: Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Q-Tip!
Watch Busta Rhymes’ “Thank You” video featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Q-Tip after the jump.
Directed by Director X, “Thank You” opens with a “Brady Bunch”-style split screen, perhaps to subtly illuminate the perceived rift between G.O.O.D. Music (Kanye, Q-Tip) and Young Money (Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes).
As “Thank You” continues, the split screen disappears (hello, metaphor for friendship and harmony!), and the video becomes a casual free-for-all with Busta and Q-Tip chilling and dancing, while Kanye and Lil Wayne fade in and out intermittently. (And by “fade in and out intermittently,” we mean “a statue-like Kanye calmly perches behind a rapping Q-Tip.”)
Anyway, hurray for peace, love, and understanding within the hip-hop record label community! Just in time for Thanksgiving!
