Tyler, the Creator takes a second backstage to express gratitude to Busta Rhymes for the inspiration he’s given him and other artists over the years.

“This man is so instrumental to how I approach,” Tyler expresses to Busta. “The freeness, how wild it is.”

The Call Me If You Get Lost artist goes on to share how Busta’s music felt real, human and interesting.

“It was human,” Tyler continued. “It was like ahhh that’s interesting.”

He added, “You just went for it.”

Tyler goes on to share the moment he really felt influenced by Busta’s musical creations.

“I remember the first time I saw ‘Gimme Some More’ and I said I want to make stuff,” he added before noting, “I want to thank you for existing.”

How sweet! Tyler also acknowledged the importance of giving Busta his flowers and mentioned Missy Elliott as someone who also doesn’t get their flowers enough.

“And you guys are so important to me and my output,” he ends before the clip cuts off.

The entire time Busta Rhymes appears humbled by Tyler’s remarks and expresses his gratitude right back.

50 Cent will continue his tour with special guests, Busta Rhymes and Jeremih, in Sacramento, Seattle, Vancouver, Edmonton, St. Paul, Chicago, and more.
