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.

Busta is Back!

You can tell Busta worked extremley hard on this album. Props to Busta.

A Complete East meets West Album

My only complaint about the album is album artwork (the type layout to be exact). Other than that I cant find a single thing wrong. This IS one of the best albums of the year. Busta's original east coast style with Dr. Dre's west coast refining elevates Busta higher than any other artist can ever desire to reach. Each track is well thought out. Each verse has you awaiting the next. He shows guest appearances are not to sell records but to complement the album as a whole. He is holdin down the east coast as always. For those who did not pre-order and get the track by track breakdown by Busta ya missin' out. It really gets you to understand the logic he goes through when creating what others cant and do what others are scared to do or cannot do. This is my album of the year. This is what the Rap World has been missing. Every artist should take a lesson from this man.

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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,...
