‘F**K YOUR MASK’: Rapper Busta Rhymes TRASHES Government COVID Mandates in Viral Rant

August 2nd, 2021 4:58 PM

People have had it with the masks and the lockdowns. And if that’s not obvious, look no further than a viral video of Busta Rhymes brutalizing the government over their “weird ass” mask mandates and attacks against our civil liberties.

Who knew the “Break Ya Neck” singer was such a freedom fighter?

The 49 year-old rapper, whose real name is Trevor George Smith Jr., took time out of a recent live performance in St. Louis to slam government mask mandates and the strange anti-social climate they seem to produce. 

“Fuck your mask,” Rhymes exclaimed to concert-goers in a video clip taken from a hip hop show back in June. The video recently resurfaced online, perfect for a time when anti-mask sentiment grows in response to the CDC recommending that vaccinated people don their face diapers once again.

Clearly discontent with having to put his music on hold to abide by COVID-related closures and lockdowns, the rapper told his audience, “this is my second show in front of human life in the last 15 fucking months.” With live music, sports games and other gatherings in most places around the world have been on life support for the last year and a half, being a musician or nightlife venue owner has been tough to say the least. The rapper was so ecstatic to be performing in front of a live audience again that he called it his “God given right of freedom.”

Oh, considering how sweet it is to be in public spaces this summer without the mask, we totally can relate. But back to slamming the lockdown trigger-happy world 

Rhymes pulled zero punches on the government, which he claimed has been using the COVID crisis to remove civil liberties. "COVID can suck a dick,” he stated.  The rapper added. “All these little weird ass government policies and mandates suck a dick. Stop trying to take our civil liberties away.”


Rhymes was on a roll to say the least. He threw even more expletives at masks and the government lockdowns to the wild adulation of the crowd. “No human being supposed to tell you you can’t breathe freely. Fuck your mask. I’m saying. Some of you might feel differently, but fuck your mask.”

Despite getting really explicit with the anti-mask politics, Rhymes apologized for getting “political.” Still he stressed that it took a heavy toll on him to be separate from people, especially separate from audiences during the lockdowns. He also told his audience that he would not be “going through that shit again.” 

Though as the government is ruminating over reinstating mask requirements and social distancing again, after the recent CDC flip flop, perhaps Rhymes’ freedom will be short lived.
