Hello,

I have never heard that, but it sounds like some kind of slang. I teach teenagers and they don't use this saying. Could you put it in a sentence?

I agree with Andrew. I've never heard it. If you can show the context (ie the sentence it came in, or better still the paragraph or situation too) we can probably figure it out.

It comes from this sentence "Aint nothing greater, hanging out the window straight busting at you love haters" from Jennifer Lopez's song "Run this world".

This usage is probably related to #17 from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bust ("bust on").
