Busta Rhymes Recalls Roc-A-Fella & Terror Squad Beefing At A Club

Busta’s hit “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” may have prevented Jay and Joe’s crews from coming to blows.

Busta Rhymes recently sat down with Elliot Wilson for aRespect Magazine cover story and reminisced about his career and how he ended up where he is today.

In recalling the impact of his smash single “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See,” Busta revealed some details about the Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad beef that was always bubbling under the surface.

“We were at the Roxy, and Kid Capri was DJing. I came in there with one of my mans, and Kid Capri played the shit for the third time, for the fourth time, for the fifth time, for the sixth time, for the seventh time, for the eighth time. By the eleventh time straight, no other song in between, I damn near started crying in the club, because I couldn’t believe that I’d done something that was so compelling that warranted that kind of love from the DJ. And the club was demanding that he keep playing it. Roc-a-fella and Terror Squad crossed paths in that spot that night, and you just started seeing bottles wildin’. Capri stopped the music: ‘Yo, y’all niggas chill the fuck out, man. Don’t fuck up the party.’ Niggas still wildin’. He was like, ‘I know what’s gonna stop y’all from beefing’—[makes beat noises] for the twelfth time. That song stopped the beef.”
