Busta's never been that great a lyricist... he wasn't like on some Pun shit or nothin', but around 2000 he REALLY started getting on point lyrically. His style got more focused and clear than it was when he came out, and he was just off the wall and meshed with ODB more than he would mesh with the people he's outshined the last decade. Look at Flipmode Squad Meets Def Squad... Def's lyrics were outta control, but Busta's presence still owned the shit. Busta's one of my favs either way though 'cause his flow = broken neck as far as the definition of lyrical, Busta writes stuff in a very musical way, using alot of alliteration and complimentary words... they may be relatively simple schematically, or in terms of double entender but that doesn't mean alot of forethought and planning doesn't go into his verses are when he writes in a way that leans towards the kind of flows he comes with on tracks like I'll Hurt You and What's Happenin. Em's verse on I'll Hurt You Remix was retarded really, to emulate that flow Busta had, while Busta killed it. "i hope ya people pull up and pack ya shit up" little nuance like the alliteration in that allows him to sound so nice with his own style. That's more or less the definition of lyrical... words that sound musical. Multi's aren't the only type of complexity at all.
