2. Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes
Not only did Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes went to the same high school, but they also faced each other in a rap battle that electrified the lunchroom.
George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School is the full name of the Brooklyn school that hosted such notable names from the rap Pantheon. And that’s just half the story!
They were joined by two other colleagues that grew up to become equally famous – The Notorious B.I.G and DMX. Time travelers probably booked tickets ahead for a chance to see history in the making.
For your information, it was Jay-Z who won the rap showdown. He surpassed Busta in both speed and originality. However, no grudges survived, and the two remained good friends.
Jay-Z and Busta were obvious troublemakers in school with Beyoncé’s husband even failing to graduate. Jay-Z used to sell crack cocaine and got himself three times in the process.
