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.
