WARNING! VIDEOS CONTAIN MOTHERFUCKING POTTY MOUTH

So basically there's this dude who appears (or appeared) regularly in a bunch of Busta Rhyme's music videos. Don't know who I'm talking about? Of course you don't. Here he is riding shotgun at the start while Busta spits some lyrics in "Break Ya Neck" (also can be seen in the thumbnail)

Now that's the most "normal" instance (at least of the ones I've seen) of him. In "Gimme Some Mo'" he's cross-dressing at about 1:29

But his crowning performance is in the Neptunes-produced "Light Your Ass On Fire"...

...wherein he's vying for the affections of some large ass attached to a woman alongside Busta (that one, by the way, never fails to make me burst out laughing whenever I see Pharell Williams sticking his head through the fence).

Now I'm sure he's probably appeared in a bunch of others, but that's beside the point - am I missing out on something vital here? Is he some mega-producer from Def Jam who has defined an entire generation of rap, but has nothing better to do than fuck around with Busta Rhymes? Who is this guy?

Yes some of you are going to say oh use google dickhead but fuck you - Giant Bomb is the source of all internet knowledge and if you can't give me the answer then no one can.

By the way, the greatest rap video of all time is Ludacris' "Get Back". Embedded vid is censored, unfortunately. THANK YOU VERY MUCH VEVO

And yes his arms really are that big. I've seen them. He was also pretty good in that Oscar-nominated movie about people being racist. Something about cars.

No idea but I'm so glad you posted Get Back. That song is...something.

I would imagine a member of the Flipmode Squad. Maybe it's Rampage or Lord Have Mercy.

Yeah and that sample is so perfectly used... and really creatively chosen.

If Kim Novak thinks using some of the score from Vertigo in The Artist is akin to rape than Busta violated Bernard Herrmann a lot earlier.

The guy in Light Your Ass on Fire is Bokeem Woodbine.

When I see the phrase: "Who's that goofy guy in all of Busta Rhymes' videos?" my first assumption is Busta Rhymes.

I feel like we could ask this question about a lot of rap videos. Man, Busta Rhymes used to make some great music videos. That fish eye lens.
