Busta Rhymes gives credit to his faith for grounding him. People were appalled when he released the song, Arab Monkey. The lyrical content of the song greatly offended both the American and British Muslims and the song was rightly banned from being played on the radio. Unlike many others in the list, Busta Rhymes might not be the strictest follower of his faith.
