Almost a decade since his last album release,Busta is truly in his BAG with this one!
Busta Rhymes is LEGEND! A sequel to his 1998 ground-breaking and shaking ‘Extinction Level Event’ is here and another classic in the making!
The 22-piece set is narrated by Chris Rock, and features heavy-hitters like Q-Tip, Rakim, Pete Rock, and M.O.P., along with Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, and Anderson .Paak. Kendrick Lamar joins Busta on The Jackson 5-sampled “Look Over Your Shoulder,” while the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard appears on “Slow Flow.” Busta reunites with Mariah Carey on “Where I Belong” and samples Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” on the bombastic “Outta My Mind.”
Speaking with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Busta touched on his attention to detail in crafting his first album in nearly a decade.
“I revisited every single particle of this album, just to make sure every tweak was right, every tweak as close to perfect as possible,” he said. “So for me, this is the first time I’m actually dropping an album at retail during the streaming era.”
