Scoop Deville discusses Busta Rhymes and Eminem's new collab.
During a recent interview with VladTV, Los Angeles emcee/producer Scoop Deville broke down the upcoming collaboration between Busta Rhymes and Eminem, which he produced. 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 touched on the record in an interview with XXL in September.
"I've got a six-minute record with Eminem that sounds like we are respectfully trying to battle each other in a way that you probably never heard us battle in our entire careers on a record," he said. "So it's lot of real incredibly golden moments for us on this project."
Deville also commented on the staggering amount of bars both emcees dropped, as well as the intended roll-out.
"Not only are you going to get the song, you're going to get a video, you're going to get the old Buss, old Em, and it's like six minutes of just rhyming - 64 bars [Busta], 60 bars Em - just destroying it, it's insane," he explained, claiming that Busta redid his verse after Eminem "blacked out" after receiving the track.
Sounds good to us. Extinction Level Event 2 will be a sequel to Busta's 1998 classic Extinction Level Event: The Final World Front, and will include "Twerk It" with Nicki Minaj as well as "Thank You", which features Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Q-Tip. It's rumoured to be dropping in November.
