The comedian told MC Serch that he cried so hard at the Run DMC legend’s funeral that Bus had to physically help him while saying, “You will not be left behind.”
Rock revisited those painful memories while chatting with Hip Hop icon MC Serch on the Serch Says Podcast. According to Rock, while he attended Jay’s funeral those many years ago, Busta Rhymes was there to comfort him. “I love Busta as an entertainer, as a hip dude. I don’t know, I just love Bus,” said Rock.
“I remember I was at Jam Master Jay’s funeral. I was crying, I almost fainted I was crying so hard,” he said. “I remember Bus kind of picking me up and carrying me out like a soldier, like, ‘You will not be left behind.’ I always remembered that like, ‘I like this guy.’ I just love Busta Rhymes. He never really lets you down. He’s not even underrated, he’s underappreciated.”
