Busta Rhymes Island Exists

(Radio.com) "Just look up Busta Rhymes Island on Google maps and follow your way there." These are Kevin O'Brien's directions to his home in Shewsbury, Mass.

This wasn't always the case, though. Ten years ago O'Brien began canoeing out to an island close to his home in Shrewsbury. Just a 40 foot by 40 foot speck of land in his front yard.

"It's a very small little island with rope swinging, blueberries and stuff Busta would enjoy," he said in an interview. When he and a friend were on the island, his friend suggested naming it, and they settled on Busta Rhymes Island. O'Brien went onto Google Maps and applied a geotag to the island. But the name wasn't official just yet. He submitted a proposal to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names but was denied.

It turns out a person has to be deceased for five years before the U.S. Board on Geographic Names signs off on it. So, until he passes, Busta Rhymes Island is more of a nickname to the island in Shrewsbury, Mass. More including a map.
