Classic Rotation: Busta Rhymes' "The Coming"
Classic Rotation: Busta Rhymes' "The Coming" Mar 26, 2016 at 02:50pm
Like many others who grew up long after the Native Tongues era of NY rap, my first exposure to a young Busta Rhymes came on A Tribe Called Quest’s bombastic single “Scenario.” The Low End Theory closing track featured Rhymes’ group Leaders Of The New School (who along with Tribe, De La Soul, Black Sheep, and Jungle Brothers formed the NT collective) in a cypher-esque sequence of oneupmanship that concluded with one of the greatest verses ever laid to wax.
Meet J-Doe: Conglomerate Records' Next-Up
Meet J-Doe: Conglomerate Records' Next-Up Jun 10, 2015 at 04:16pm
You probably know O.T. Genasis as the new face of Busta Rhyme's Conglomerate Records. Busta's first signee, though, is another L.A. guy, J-Doe, who's had years of industry experience under his belt. You might remember his 2011 hit, "Coke, Dope, Crack, Smack," or more likely, the remix and video, which featured T-Pain and David Banner. Though the titles of both of the Conglomerate signee's biggest hits are similar, J-Doe is a whole different kind of rapper. 
Review: Busta Rhymes & Q-Tip's "The Abstract & The Dragon"
Review: Busta Rhymes & Q-Tip's "The Abstract & The Dragon" Dec 19, 2013 at 06:45pm
Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes' new 28-track mixtape The Abstract & The Dragon plays like a documentary that any serious hip-hop head would enjoy - with its numerous remixes and skits, it's a welcome throwback to the traditional mixtape format. That being said, the tape may fall short for younger rap fans and/or advocates of the new school who prefer the turnt up trap approach to dusty New York classicism. This is an acquired taste, and although many of us were expecting something more original, this nostalgia trip is dope nonetheless.

It'll appear on the former's new album Extinction Level Event 2.  "That's the next record that's going to, I'd say, destroy the streets of New York and hip-hop in a lot of ways," Deville said. "That record is something that we've been putting together for a minute. It's not just like an overnight thing. We've been trying to make this THE record to bring back Busta in a major way."

Busta Rhymes has been talking about his long-awaited Cash Money album for some time. Earlier this year, he described the effort as a boom-bap album, but later dropped the of-the-moment track "Twerk It" as the first single, so it's hard to know what to expect from the album at this point.

It's a well-known fact that rappers love to be in the studio all day, every day, especially at weird times of the day. This can also be a costly venture, if you have to pay for studio time. Busta Rhymes is finding out just how costly it can get, in a new lawsuit from Paramount Recording Studios. Apparently Bussa Bus hasn't paid his bills, and owes the studio a massive amount of money. They're suing the rapper for $70,300.
