Busta Rhymes made a shocking revelation during a recent video -- that he once had to duct tape his belly for a music video because he was so out of shape.

Busta confessed that the incident took place while filming his “Czar” video from his Extinction Level Event 2 album.

“When I shot that video, there’s a scene of me wearing all white with a headwrap,” Busta told Tamron Hall. “When I initially put that all white on, it showed how badly out of shape I was on camera. So we went into the dressing room and they duct-taped my stomach down. With electric duct tape.”

Last month, the rapper revealed that he lost almost 90lbs -- and is now in shape.

“DON’T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!! LIFE BEGINS RIGHT NOW!!! MY DEDICATION IS DIFFERENT!! I WOULD NEVER PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND NOT BE IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!! I RESPECT MYSELF TOO MUCH AND I RESPECT Y’ALL TOO MUCH!!! I’M ONLY HERE TO INSPIRE!!” he wrote at the time.
