Trevor George Smith Jr. was born in Brooklyn, New York City, and is known for his rhyming technique and fashion in music videos. He has 11 Grammy nominations in his career as a rapper, record producer, and musician.
He sold 10 million albums in a year. Bust Rhymes made a record in The Guinness Book of World Records for the most syllables in one second.
Busta Rhymes said he lost 100 pounds in a year which he gained after the death of the two most important men in his life- his father, Trevor Smith, and manager, Chris Lighty. They were the two men that he wanted should see his win.
He stopped his diet plans and workout regimes, but he changed when he was found sleeping in his car after a party. His son was scared that he was finding it hard to breathe.
The doctor told him that if he got a cold or slept carelessly, he would die. He was told that he would lose his voice in three years. He took prednisone for the swelling in his throat. He was sent to the UCLA Health emergency for surgery.
He was on blood-pressure medications and acid-reflux medications. That is when he decided to make things better by adopting a training regime. He had to undergo an emergency throat surgery for polyps. He had a sleep apnea scare and health issues that inspired him to get in shape.
Workout Regime and Diet Planning
Rhymes reached out to Dexter Jackson, a bodybuilder, for working out in Florida. He had a new diet plan for which he ate every two hours. His chef took care of his eating habits with meals like salmon, bison, and chicken.
Rhymes told Jackson that he was impatient to achieve a good shape. Rhymes rented a house with security and a chef.
He trained with Jackson three times on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and two times on Tuesdays and Saturdays. He increased his metabolism and muscle strength. ‘We just watched movies and recorded songs.’ With Victor Munoz, he trained five days a week in New York City.
Now he is still seriously maintaining a diet of eggs, oatmeals, salad, steak, and fish. He weighs 254 pounds and has a fit body that he showed on Instagram in an amazing before and after post. His trainers were Victor Martinez, Kia Greene, Victor Munoz, and Dexter Jackson.
Fitness Motivational Caption
In the photos, he has six packs and a photo of him before he started his training. His transformation has the internet excited about his album. He has shown some serious fitness motivation and inspires followers with a caption- ‘Don’t give up on yourself!’ He spent his free time during the Covid-19 pandemic working out when he would normally be performing.
So what was his motivation to work out? New Music.
He opened up about having been told to tape down his stomach in a music video. ‘So, we went to a dressing room, and they duct taped my stomach with electric duct tape.’ He was 340 pounds, and he was out of shape. With trainer Victor Munoz, he worked on a plan to strengthen his chest, decrease alcohol intake and reduce belly fat.
For Busta Rhymes, life has just begun.
