Taken from the rapper’s new album ‘Extinction Level 2: The Wrath Of God’, which arrived on Friday (October 30), the new track features Brooklyn duo M.O.P., who Busta famously collaborated with on the remix to hip-hop anthem ‘Ante Up’.
The video for ‘Czar’, a word used to describe a supreme ruler, sees Busta anointed as “the chosen one” by a tribe leader, before he performs with a number of tribal dancers, M.O.P. and his longtime friend and hype man Spliff Starr.
With a vibe similar to the video for Busta’s 1997 smash ‘Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See’, ‘Czar’ sees cameos from comedians Chris Rock and Michael Blackson.
