In 2007, Busta Rhymesâ€”who grew up in Brooklyn with his Seventh-Day Adventist Jamaican-immigrant parentsâ€”said in an interview, â€śI live my life by Islam,â€ť and went on to say that he prioritizes â€śbeing in tune with your spirit.â€ť Given his beliefs, the release of his 2008 song â€śArab Moneyâ€ť met with considerable controversy, including accusations of racism and criticism from many Muslims who were incensed that he used verses from the Quran in a decidedly secular song. Busta defended the song, saying, â€śWe ainâ€™t tryinâ€™ to be disrespectful…. We are actually acknowledging the fact that the Arabian culture, a Middle East culture, is one of the few cultures that value passing down hard work riches thatâ€™s been built amongst the family.â€ť
