Seen busta in person the other night, he was much smaller in person that he looks. I'm 6' even maybe 6'.025 on some days and busta was at best equal to me when we stood next to each other.looked about 230 pounds

6'4 is ridiculous.

He would be a legit 6ft1 guy like Obama and Ronaldo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
C I think. Looks a solid 6ft1 guy most of the time. D at worst. But B doesn't seem that unlikely either.
Jakertini said on 3/Sep/16
Hey rob, which is the most possible
In my opinion he is most likely D and C for second most likely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/16
Rob, is a fraction over this possible?

I think he can look 186-187cm range at times.
Editor Rob: not sure I get a 186-7 feel from him.
Bishop said on 14/Jun/15
Would have guessed 6'1.5".
Jack said on 15/Dec/13
Rob He really needs an upgrade to at least 186 cm. Looks near 6'2".

I saw him at Barney's yesterday as I am the door man. This man is enormous. His chest and shoulders are literally bodybuilder like. He is at least 6'2 240-260 pounds. He is HUGE. His neck, biceps everything. I wonder if he's taking juice.

6ft1 is too short for him, im 187cm and i bet he's bigger than me, you can just tell.
Lomax said on 25/Apr/13
Samuel l had him easily beat on shaft, so how can he be 6'2" or 6'1"???
Silent d said on 4/Feb/13
6 foot 2.
Rah 6'0" said on 31/Jan/13
Saw him at bodega in downtown manhattan at about 3 am hes a monster 6'3 and around 225-250 range im 6 foot solid and about 190 and felt inadequate. 6'1 is way off
Cobain said on 9/Dec/11
Here he is with 5'9.3 model Isabeli Fontana who is also wearing heels. 6ft 1 inches, is correct.

Paris Hilton is at least 5'7 and she's wearing heels (although she isnt standing straight) She has luda (5'7) still beat, she would be on par with diddy (5'10) if she stood up. Busta looks to have a 4-5 inch advantage on puff.

Don't short change the guy.
Big T said on 29/May/11
How come in the "Touch It" Music video he appears shorter than 5'10 1/2" (max!) Winky Wright and 5'11" max Felix Trinidad??? Likewise 50 Cent doesn't look any taller than Winky in the video for "Outta Control"???
conc said on 18/May/11

lol said on 3/May/11

Viper said on 26/Feb/11
Police sheet doesnt mean ****, lol. This guy is 6-0 range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/11
But the police sheet had him at 6"2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/11
Is 187cm a possibility Rob?

[Editor Rob: I don't see him standing that tall]
JPG said on 21/Jan/11
If P. Diddy is 5'11" then Busta is way bigger than 6'1

glenn said on 12/Sep/07
yeah,its weird,he can look shorter.but like you said,more in the past.
Salsero04 said on 11/Sep/07
I've always thought Busta was around 6'2" I guess 6'1" is also possible. I went to school with Michael Phelps, the swimmer, who's 6'4". Phelps took a picture with him, and Busta looked only a couple inches shorter. Don't know about shoes, but if he were 4 inches shorter, he would just barely be passing Phelps eye level, which was not the case.

SD2002, Busta was a lot taller than Ice Cube, and actually shorter than Michael Rappaport in Higher Learning, but Rappaport is like 6'3", so I'm not seeing how that's relavant.

Glenn, you were right. He was much smaller at the beginning of his career up until relatively recently. 2004 and earlier he was very skinny. He gained a lot of weight right before he released his last album, must have started lifting because it was a drastic change. That might be what makes him look slightly shorter now too...
inferno rw said on 29/Jul/07
all u guys i met him on his tour of germany and spoke to him n spliffstar. gt rite next to him,i was wearin ma tims and im bowt 5.11 in them. the guy is deffo 6 foot 1 maybe even 6 foot 2. spliff is nt as big, around 5foot9 5.8ish.busta was a bit of an idiot tho only signin 2 autographs in total. the guy is v big built tho deffo over 200 pounds easily which makes him look smaller.
Brad said on 20/Apr/07
I pulled his NYPD arrest jacket. He's 6' 2".
SD2002 said on 15/Apr/07
I think this guy might be real short! I remember seeing Higher Learning and he didn't seem that much taller than Ice Cube or Michael Rappaport. Then there was a movie where he was towered by this other guy, forgot what it was as I just was channel surfing (they were next to each other at night in front of some building) and the guy towered over him. If he's 6'1 then the guy must have been 6'7. Maybe he's 5'11?
footballed28 said on 6/Feb/07
I seriously think Busta is 6'1 1/ instinct is usually right
Anonymous said on 12/Nov/06
he was 1in shorter than samuel l jackson in shaft. If jackson is 6ft2, then bustas 6ft1.
Glenn said on 10/Nov/06
Jk-on this site an inch means the world.Busta might be 6-1 or even 6-2.but when I see him in public,he gives an illussion of 6ft,due to maybe posture and stockyness.he is heavier than I imagined.or maybe he was skinny early in his career.
6'2'' JK said on 10/Nov/06
What is the difference between 6'0'' and 6'1''?? its only 2cm!! how in the hell can you tell if he looks 6'1'' or not, I used to believe he was 6'2'' but i think 6'1'' is more likelier.
Viper652 said on 10/Nov/06
He sure doesnt look 6-1 in Halloween Ressurection.
stan said on 10/Nov/06
busta is no doubt 6'1 anything lower is crazy
Glenn said on 10/Nov/06
I agree with you 100% on that Viper.
Viper652 said on 9/Nov/06
He looks no taller than 6-0 a lot of the time.
Jay said on 8/Nov/06
Just saw an old episode of the Wayans Brothers show, and Busta made an appearance, he looked bout the same height as Shawn and maybe a bit taller. He tends to slouch alot, but when he stood straight up he looked about the same height as Shawn Wayans who I think is 6'2.
Derek said on 12/Oct/06
Busta is a pretty big guy, ripped as hell. He seems like a 6'2" guy but very well may be only 6'.
Glenn said on 4/Oct/06
Looks 6ft alot in person.
clone said on 2/Oct/06
Sometimes the people looks more shorter than they really are. sometimes is the opposite case.
Glenn said on 6/Aug/06
When did he get knocked out? it was one of his security at a video shoot that got killed.
Kyle said on 5/Aug/06
Glenn, who was killed? I've heard busta rhymes is a complete idiot, I'm glad zab judah (boxer) knocked him out.
playmakr said on 13/Jun/06
I went to Uniondale H.S. with Busta and graduated in '88 - he had just moved from Brooklyn a year or two earlier. I'm 6'0 he's about an inch taller than me. No more... no less. I ran into him about 6 or 7 years after H.S. on 8th ave way before his solo career skyrocketed and he was the same 'ol Taheem (name he went by in H.S.).
Ujane, Moscow said on 31/Mar/06
truly? 6ft 2? Not 6 ft? Are u sure?
J-Dog. said on 11/Mar/06
Sounds like a grade A asshole. Thanks Glenn and others for the information.
A-Bomb said on 8/Feb/06
It's funny having read Glenn's posts and then to read this is in the AP just today.

"Ramirez's killing apparently isn't the only incident Busta was involved in this past weekend. Reports are surfacing that Busta and his four bodyguards assaulted a photographer shortly after leaving a Manhattan restaurant this past Friday (February 3). Photographer Justin Baggoo claims the rapper quickly became hostile when he attempted to snap a photo.

"When [Busta] saw me, he rushed to me and one of the bodyguards came around me and grabbed me," Baggoo told The Daily News. "He grabbed me by the hand and they started to check me. [Busta] just came directly to me, and then he grabbed me by the hand and one of the bodyguards took the camera from me and it hit against a glass [wall] on the bank."
Glenn said on 7/Feb/06
he always ignored me or had a bodygaurd push me out the way.he is like that with someone innocent was the way,he looks 6 feet to me.
6 foot 1.5, 16, still growing said on 7/Feb/06
hey glenn, I can probably understand that he's a big jerk. he acted like a jerk to people having fun near his music video set touch it, they got so pissed fof they came back to shoot him up adn just killed his bodyguard. This happened today, february 6, 2006. Check out the news.
J-Dog. said on 5/Feb/06
