Native Tongues X UNDRCRWN

tribeThe folks at UNDRCRWN hooked up some tees paying homage to those Native Tongues (though, I think it’s just Native Tongue) peeps that made that music you love. A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and Prince Paul get some nice looks.  More tees after the vid. (Propers go to Cruziiie)

De La Soul is from the soul.

Busta Rhymes: Still Zone Coastin’

Up in the place, true indeed.

Up in the place, true indeed.

This new Busta Rhymes mixtape, I Bullshit You Not, is tough. It’s actually courtesy of Busta and DJ Scratch, who provides all the beats. (Spotted at Rap Radar & Nah Right)

While Scratch isn’t rocking with EPMD anymore, his production discography is chunky with the booming beats. A number of them have been for Bussa Bus and this mixtape lives up to the sum of its parts. Peep “Director’s Cut” and “Foreign Currency” if you think I’m bulls**ttin’.

Busta Rhymes f/ Raekwon “Death Wish”

However, Busta needs to put that damn new album out. If I recall correctly, his proper album, B.O.M.B. (Back On My B.S.) was supposed to drop in early ’08 (when Busta was still on Aftermath/Interscope and the album was still called Blessed).
Over the years I’ve gotten to interview Busta a number of times and he never fails to provide insightful answers that reveal his deep respect for and knowledge of Hip-Hop history. Getting the early co-sign, and his his name, from one Chuck D meant Busta was going places. And from the video below, and this is no disrespect to Charlie Brown and Dinco D, Busta was the clear star of L.O.N.S.
