Busta Rhymes grew up in Morecambe!

Legendary American rapper who cut some of most manic and greatest rap tunes Busta Rhymes has a past that is far weirder than any other rap star…

He grew up in Morecambe.

Sort of.

The young Busta was sent to his aunts in Morecambe to stop him getting in trouble and spent some time in one of our favourite seaside resorts. He stole. A pair of sneakers from a shop during his stay there and was sent back by his aunt apologize. The shop made him clean the floors as a punishment!

Wonder if he will ever return to the town! Or rap about this curious rain soaked hood!

  2. Morecambe …Happy Mount Park, The Winter Gardens, Heysham, The Midland Hotel and the Bare End Women’s Institute…great memories of my grandparents too.

  8. Some really nice and utilitarian info on this web site, as well I think the design has excellent features.

  9. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
