Shoot for the Moon

Album: Back on My B.S. (2009)
  • Busta explained this song to "That's another one o' those feel-good, enjoy yourself, have-a-good-time records. My grandmother always used to tell me to shoot for the moon and that way even if I miss I'd land on the stars - do s--t that exceeds my expectations so I'll accomplish my own. I always liked that saying. That's why I'd always do s--t to make me stand out. That's why I said "Rarr rarr!" on the record with Tribe: it was like, 'OK then - out-do that!'"
