Busta Rhymes turns 38 today*Busta Rhymes is being sued for not paying his studio time bill of more than $70,000 smackers, reports show.

Paramount Recording Studio has accused the rap vet of accruing 375 studio hours between December 2011 and February 2012, without dropping a single cent.

According to the suit, Busta spent as many as 16 hours a day in the studio over a total of 35 sessions, most of which lasted well into the morning.

The company is seeking $70,300 in back pay. It’s likely that Busta spent the extra time to put the finishing touches on his last album.

The dates in question fall in line with the release of his Year of the Dragon project. which dropped last August.

The “Twerk It” MC has yet to officially respond to the outstanding debt, but he’s definitely not letting the legal barrier hinder his work ethic, tweeting #STUDIOGRINDB—-! late last night.
