Album Review

Following up his troubled 2006 release The Big Bang, Back on My B.S. — or B.O.M.B.S. — is guided by the "return to form" template, sometimes to a fault. "Give Em What They Askin For" is an exercise in yelling, kicking, and screaming "I'm back" as loud as you can, and while fans will likely cheer, Busta and producer Ron Brownz are just preaching to the converted and should have left this hookless monster on a mixtape. A handful of similar tracks suffer from this same problem of ambition over inspiration, but for every miss, there's a hit, and you don't have to look any further than the other Busta and Brownz team-up, "Arab Money," which acts as an Arabic-sampling alternative to its equally infectious older brother, "Mundian to Bach Ke." The Jelly Roll production "Sugar" is the wild sound of Kraftwerk with an Isley Brother in their ranks, while Pharrell gives "Kill Dem" a Neptunes-styled version of dancehall, allowing Busta to turn on the patois and let his Jamaican heritage take control. Odd that a comeback album would put unsurprising Akon and John Legend collaborations in the fourth quarter, but even odder is the successful closing bit of Euro-disco called "World Go Round" which falls somewhere between a Flo Rida single and a new wave club classic. That's more highlights than last time out, and even if B.O.M.B.S. fails to put Busta back on top, it is certainly a step in the right direction.

where's arab money?

Where is arab money on this album. That's the official 1st single 4 Pete's sake! So disappointed.

ok nothing special

an all round ok middle of the road album i was expecting more:( and i expected at least two banging funky club tracks that would stamp in ppl's minds Busta's BACK .....ut sadly no....

We miss the old busta

I Don't think that this album will appeal to any fans of busta's old lyrical flow and general style of delivery. Up until a couple of years ago busta rhymes was my favourite hiphop artist, as he didnt seem to follow any trends, he was unique and people couldnt wait for the next album to drop because it was certain to be a 100% banger... These days though, it seems as if busta has changed his ways to fit in with the moneymaking side of things which he never used to be a part of. So as a result his style has become too general and it seems as though he wants to move on from the crazy flip personality 'unexpected next turn' busta.. to the busta that just wants to make money and become mainstream... This album is the marker of the end of his hiphop persona... dont get me wrong though, there are a couple of songs on here that were good to listen to 'cause as always busta will serve at least one track up that you'll have on ur playlist... 'Decision', 'give 'em what they askin for' and 'how you really want it' were the favourites but this is nothing compared to the big bang or genesis

The most idiosyncratic personality in rap and possessor of its most recognizable delivery, a halting, ragga-inspired style with incredible complexity, inventiveness, and humor, Busta Rhymes formed Leaders of the New School in 1990 and released two albums with the group before breaking out with a 1996 solo hit single, "Woo-Hah!! Got You All in Check." Born in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, in 1972 of Jamaican heritage (a definite influence on his rapping style), Busta moved to Long Island in 1983 and,...
