“Spliff star from flipmode” – Verb in HYPE MAN pg. 84
The third hype man that Verb mentions in his top 5 is Spliff Star from the Flipmode Squad.
Called one of the greatest Hype Men in rap history by complex.com, Spliff Star was best friend and side kick to Busta Rhymes from a young age. After Spliff decided that working the streets was not as good as a career in hip hop, he joined forces with Busta Rhymes and their careers took off in the mid 1990s. Their dynamic is packed with chemistry, support, and vibing each other in a way that creates cohesive and flowing performance.
