Named Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr. by birth, he is later "baptized" with the name Busta Rhymes by Chuck D of Public Enemy (from former NFL wide receiver George "Buster" Rhymes) after watching him perform.
I also learned that in 1998, Smith recorded Extinction Level Event (Final World Front) with the single, "Gimme Some More" that reached number 5 in the UK singles chart in January 1999.
