Busta spoke recently with Entertainment Weekly about how he’s been occupying his time creatively over the past eight years. The rapper said he was working “diligently” on creating a body of work that would speak to his soul. “I have been so fortunate to have done so many amazing projects… that were even deemed classics by the people and my colleagues and my peers,” said Busta. “After doing it this long and having those moments, you feel like What have you not done that you need to do, to reignite the spark and make you feel the excitement you need to feel? Not in the way that you felt it before, but in a way that supersedes everything that you’ve felt.”
Here’s Some of My Favorite Tracks :
Busta is flippin’ the drums of BBD’s classic track “Poison” on “Outta My Mind” and features the group itself on the record .
Another Intro which represent the album is the song title of the Album “E.L.E 2 : The Warth Of God” with Minister Louis Farrakhan which also reflects Busta’s opinion on President Orange aka Donald Trump.
“Slow Flow” brings back Wu Tang spirit by the late ODB , Damn it’s been a long time since “Wooh Hah” single was out .
Q-Tip is back on “Don’t Go” track bringin’ the tribe’s vibe back alive.
“Strap Yourself Down” is a new track produced by the late & great , Detroit’s Own J Dilla R.I.P .
“True Indeed” features GangStarr’s DJ Premier on 1 & 2’s that produced the track as well .
Rick Ross is also featured with The Dragon himself on a jazzy soulful & vibin’ song “Master Fard Muhammad” produced by Hi-Tek & Terrace Martin .
Rapsody & Busta collab on “Best I Can” is their finest verses alongside 9th Wonder’s Production .
Mariah is comin’ back to a special sequel collabo on ” Where I Belong” since “Give It To Me” on 2002 .
“Look Over Your Shoulder” samples Jackson 5’s “Ill Be There” and features K Dot aka Kendrick Lamar on a soulful production by Nottz , the song with both Busta & K Dot verses with young MJ’s vocals are perfect .
A Long time R&B\Soul Singer Mary J Blige has a guest appearance on “You’ll Never Find Another Me” which produced by Busta .
Nikki Grier on “Freedom” on rebel song produced by Nottz as well .
As Gil-Scott Heron Said : “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised , The Revolution Is Here”
