Young Busco's 2015 video quickly spread online, racking up 38 million views and it also spawned a scene in Black Panther, which the social media personality wasn't a fan of.
Young Busco reacted to the Black Panther scene by telling HuffPost, When I saw [the scene], my girl was trying to record it. I slapped the phone out of her hand, because I was like, ‘I don’t want to fucking be a part of this.’ For real, every time I see that shit, I get depressed. ... I feel good I created something that’ll be with the world forever, but then I feel bad because I didn’t handle my business part correctly."
Young Busco, who was a father to five children, continued to post his comedy on Instagram and had posted on his page yesterday (November 25).
