New York rapper Fabolous looks at Busta Rhymes as much more than a hip-hop veteran. Loso hit up social media this week to salute the Big Apple native on his born day.

Early Tuesday, Fab went to Instagram to deliver a belated birthday shout-out and credit Busta for giving him life lessons.

Yesterday, rap stars Rick Ross and Nas hit up Instagram to salute Busta.

The same day, Busta shared a throwback pic to celebrate his b-day.
