Where have you gone, Busta Rhymes!
On Oct. 23, the legendary rapper posted side-by-side pictures of himself. One of the images is undated but shows him with a pronounced tummy. The other is recent, and it shows him with incredibly-defined abs.
"DON'T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!" he captioned the side-by-side snaps. "LIFE BEGINS RIGHT NOW!!!"
Busta, 48, implied that his upcoming album, "Ele 2 The Wrath of God," was one of the motivating factors to him losing weight.
"MY DEDICATION IS DIFFERENT!! I WOULD NEVER PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND NOT BE IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!" he said. "I RESPECT MYSELF TOO MUCH AND I RESPECT Y'ALL TOO MUCH!!! I'M ONLY HERE TO INSPIRE!!"
Busta thanked several of his trainers and coaches and tagged Weight Watchers and Peloton in his images, indicating they helped with his transformation.
As his followers congratulated him in the comments section of his Instagram, he told one fan, "Let's keep it going and keep it growing!!"
Over the past few months, the "Break Ya Neck" singer has posted several videos from his intense workouts. In August, Media Take Out reported that Busta had lost 100 pounds after once allegedly tipping the scales at nearly 400 pounds.
