Busta Rhymes Island Is Real… Seriously
Busta Rhymes has his own island and he may not even know it. Seriously. A man in Massachusetts has created an island utopia in honor of his favorite lyrical dragon.
According to Boston.com, Kevin O’Brien has been the caretaker of the Busta Rhymes Island in Shrewsbury, Mass., since 2005.
“It’s a very small little island [with] rope-swinging, blueberries, and…stuff Busta would enjoy,” he says of the land near his home.
O’Brien hopes to one day become the official owner of the island. The 27-year-old landowner did submit a proposal to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names for approval but was denied. According to state’s laws of adverse possession, someone must maintain an island continuously for 20 years before that person is considered the property’s owner.
So for now, O’Brien uses the island as a getaway for him and his friends to go camping and fishing.
O’Brien, who has been a Bussa-Buss fan since he was 13 years old, hopes Rhymes hears about his island and comes through for a visit.
“I hope he’s going to find out, and he’s welcome to visit anytime,” he says. “I got a music studio in the basement, too, so we’ll see what comes up out of it.”
