Billboard - With so many Hollywood movies on ice as the strike by actors drags on into the fall, Busta Rhymes is prepping his own blockbuster. Actually, make that Blockbusta, the MC’s 11th solo studio album, which is due out on Black Friday, Nov. 24.
Busta announced the project in a video posted on his socials on Monday (Oct. 23), in which he held a Zoom sit-down with the project’s four AAA-list super producers: Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. “This project right here is executive produced by the f—ing committee,” Swizz said in the clip. “Pharrell the Pharaoh, Timbo the King, Swizz Beatz the student.”
Timbaland gave thanks for the Transformers-like gathering of production legends, telling Busta that he is, “so grateful that you chose me to be a part of your legacy.”
My dick is harder than a Siberian railroad spike right now for Friday.
Yes, because we will be having a massive sale in the Barstool Store for Black Friday -
But also because one of the best rappers of all time, Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr., aka Busta Rhymes, is dropping a new album, that is entirely produced by three of the greatest producers of all time. (And if we're being honest, my top 3 favorites ever).
Don't get me started on how enraged and jealous I am that KFC and the whitest boy alive Feitelberg got to interview Swizz Beatz a couple weeks ago (awesome interview with some amazing untold stories by the way)
Swizz, Timbaland, and The Neptunes (Pharrell) dominated hip-hop and pop music for pretty much the entirety of the 2000s and early 2010s. If you want to dig deeper Timbaland really started to blow up late 90s so that stretches it even further.
If this album comes anything close to what these guys were able to cook up with Busta back in the day, then we are in for a real fucking treat.
Speaking of treats, they previewed the "artwork" and track list last week and I think this is going to be the first CD I've bought in like ten years thanks to how sick this looks. What a genius idea.
