Throwback: Busta Rhymes-Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See

Busta Rhymes’s sophomore album When Disaster Strikes kept the excitement of his debut The Coming. “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See” announced Rhymes’ second full-length with an understated intensity. The beat resonated with a boom and an echo that immediately started the party before Rhymes rapped one word. His flow was debonair with a friendly invite to have a good time unlike his Dungeon Dragon fire-spitting persona. Hype Williams directed the Coming To America-influenced video which has been acknowledged as one of the greatest ever made of any genre. Busta Rhymes had some of the best visuals in the ’90s but he never won an MTV Video Music Award despite his 16 nominations. He faced a repeat of this reception with the Grammys because “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See” did not win the  Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance which is one his 11 nominations. When Disaster Strikes was one of the best albums released in 1997.  Busta Rhymes’ 10th studio album Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath Of God was released in 2020.
