Busta Rhymes’ “Dangerous” Was Inspired By A PSA | Genius News
Busta Rhymes‘ 1998 track “Dangerous” doesn’t seem like it carries a strong drug safety message, but the song’s chorus traces its roots to some unique source material. Busta borrows the lyrics from a 1980s anti-drug PSA that warns children about the dangers of taking prescription medication unsupervised. The Rashad Smith-produced track peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100—marking one of the highest-charting solo hits of Busta’s career—and was eventually certified Gold.
