Busta Rhymes Gives Kodak Black Thorough Life Advice In “Homage” Music Video

Busta Rhymes is giving Kodak Black life gems on “Homage.” 

The music video for the standout track arrived on Friday (April 26). Bus-a-bus took to Instagram to announce the “movie” and proclaim his excitement. “THE BLESSINGS DON’T STOP THAT’S WHY WE WON’T EVER STOP!! THE BIGGEST MOVIE IN THE WORLD IS OUT NOW!! #HOMAGE BY THE DRAGON ? FT. KODAK BLACK DIREXTED BY @bennyboom PROD. BY @wheezy IS OUT RIGHT NOW!!! OFF THAT BIG #BLOCKBUSTA ALBUM AVAILABLE AND STREAMING EVERYWHERE RIGHT NOW!!!”

The Benny Boom-directed visuals tell a mini-story. Busta and Kodak can be seen having dinner with a shady figure before they realize he’s trying to play them. He is then kidnapped by Spliff Star, questioned, and dropped out of a helicopter. 

Boom paints a beautiful picture of success, setting the video in front of a tropical and lush backdrop. And, of course, there are plenty of bikini-clad women and cigars to symbolize a certain idyllic sense of success. 

In his verse, Kodak recounts avoiding snakes and a series of missteps. Meanwhile, the “Dungeon Dragon” gives Yak some thorough life advice that echoes the Florida rapper’s real-life hardships, such as being in and out of prison. 

“When I see the young G, Kodak, I love the way you be contributin’ the sh*t that you be doin’/I done seen you go to jail, come home, get shot, calm down, and now I like the way you’re movin’/Jewelry be priceless, I like to make the records, but I love to sit a ni**a down and school him/Take the information and apply it, then become a success every single time you use ’em, yeah,” the proven veteran raps in the chorus. 

“Homage” was released as a part of Busta Rhymes’ latest album, Blockbusta. Blockbusta was released in November 2023 and dropped as a 19-track LP. The work, executive produced by Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, and Timbaland, included an array of artists on almost every song. Contributing artists included Coi Leray, BIA, DaBaby, T-Pain, Morray, Chris Brown, Shenseea, Blackway, Burna Boy, JNR CHOI, Giggs, Kodak, Blxst, Yung Bleu, and more.
