—Busta Rhymes as Magic

Magic is a featured fighter in Def Jam series and is a playable character in Def Jam Fight For NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover.


Busta Rhymes has an impressive résumé. His outrageous style became clear with the group Leaders of the New School, which came on the scene with their 1991 masterpiece Future Without a Past. He's honed his talents since then. A breakthrough guest appearance on A Tribe Called Quest's classic Scenario cemented his rep as a hip-hop prodigy. His platinumplus debut effort The Coming confirmed that Busta was more than just a voice. His monumental first single "Whoo-Ha! Got You All In Check" provided a showcase for his acrobatic rhyming style that has stood with him through six albums (The Coming, When Disaster Strikes, and E.L.E.—The Final World Front, Anarchy, Genesis, It Ain't Safe No More) and myriad guest appearances. During his amazing career he's worked with superstars such as Mary J. Blige, Boyz II Men, Jermaine Dupri, Sean "Puffy" Combs, Redman, and others, as well as snagging acting roles in Finding Forrester, Shaft (2002), and John Singleton's Higher Learning. His burgeoning Flipmode label added another tier to his entertainment empire with the gold-selling Flipmode Squad debut, The Imperial.
