Eminem's smash hit "My Name Is" beat out Busta Rhymes' smash hit "Gimme Some More" for Best Rap Performace at the 2000 GRAMMYs.

NME does a feature in which they ask artists if they can remember parts of their careers.  When they asked Busta about that, he said he had no recollection of Em edging him out the awards show.  But he certainly remembers "My Name is."

Em is one of my favourite MCs ever," he told the British publication. "We’ve done multiple records together and even on his latest album, Music to Be Murdered By, the track ‘Yah Yah’ used my vocals from ‘Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check’. He’s one incredible motherf*cker! Wyclef Jean was the first person to play ‘My Name Is’ to me – before it was even out. We were on tour together and he had a six-song EP from Eminem. When we played ‘My Name Is’, I could not believe it. I went so crazy on his bus that I shattered his windshield with my head! I couldn’t believe the shit that Em was saying and Dre’s production was unbelievable – at the time, nothing existed like it in the whole game."

Busta just dropped the album Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God. Like Shady, he's still doing it late into his 40s.
