Today, Busta Rhymes, a 12-time GRAMMY® Award nominee and one of the most influential rappers in the industry, unveils an exciting new single and music video titled “Luxury Life” featuring Coi Leray. You can listen to the track [here] and watch the accompanying music video [here].
Produced by Swizz Beatz and Busta Rhymes himself, “Luxury Life” brings together two different eras and vibes into one seamless and slick track. The song gives a 2023 spin to the Jay Z and Foxy Brown classic, “Ain’t No N****.” It’s a bona fide party anthem and a testament to Busta and Coi’s exceptional talents. Busta provides guidance to the rising star Coi Leray while empowering her to be her authentic self. The track kicks off with a funky bassline, setting the tone for the groovy beat. Busta and Coi establish an engaging call-and-response right from the start. Busta’s confident cadence warns, “If you don’t mention me as one of the greatest, your train of thought is no exception.” Their voices playfully bounce back and forth on the infectious hook, “Luxury life, we living over the top… No one can do it better.”
The music video, directed by the legendary Benny Boom, pays homage to Quentin Tarantino with a Pulp Fiction-style stick-up scene at a restaurant. It builds to an entertaining face-off finale reminiscent of the iconic confrontation between Bruce Lee and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Game of Death. From start to finish, Busta and Coi Leray shine on screen as hip-hop’s dynamic new duo.
