EDITORS’ NOTES

Executive produced by Dr. Dre, The Big Bang is as spacious, muscular, and finely calibrated as a high-end SUV. Busta Rhymes turned out to be the perfect partner for Dre, as both believe in spiking their hyper-masculine hip-hop with a dash of mischief. The beats are more regimented than previous Busta Rhymes records, but that only lets Busta overlay his own tricky rhythms on “Touch It,” “Don’t Get Carried Away,” and the uproarious “Get Down”—one of Timbaland’s most entertaining productions. And given Dre’s influence, the guests are impressive, especially Rick James’s posthumous turn on “In the Ghetto.”
