Album Review

The hard-working Busta Rhymes feels he wasn't handled properly by the J label. He might have a case: 2002's It Ain't Safe No More was the first album he released that failed to reach the Top Ten of the Billboard album chart, and it didn't come close — it didn't even see the Top 40. Now on Dr. Dre's Aftermath, which is sort of a story, he also chopped his hair (as evidenced on the cover of an XXL issue and throughout the booklet of this album), and has had to deal with the death of his bodyguard, Israel Ramirez, who was shot on the scene of his video for the "Touch It" remix. Lead single "Touch It," released months ahead of the album, did well despite being a very polarizing club record. He gets a few hot beats here, including a couple from the boss of his label and one from the late J Dilla. Stevie Wonder and the late Rick James are two of the dozen-plus guests, and Busta remains the dominant voice throughout.

Customer Reviews

Bang Baby Bang

Busta's latest offering is far from the masterpiece it might suggest, but makes up for in creativity what it lacks in depth... Too many cooks spoil the broth here with the album's entourage of talent (Kelis, Nas, Swizzy etc) but there are true Busta signatures throughout... the deep snarling, crazy yelling and rumbling flow. Not surprisingly, "Touch It" is the standout track with it's stripped back mechanical beat (although Touch It Remix is even better - and sadly omitted from the album). Probably won't make him new fans, but hey... Busta hardly needs them anyway.
