Busta Rhymes is probably one of hip hop’s most mainstream names and takes over Record of the Week with his brand new release which is a collaboration he has done with Canadian based rapper Tory Lanez and Jamaican icon Vybz Kartel.
Having closely revealed Twista for the 1992 Guinness World Record for ‘fastest rapper’, Busta is deserving of all respect given by any adept music listener for the past twenty years or so.
This ‘Break Yo Neck’ emcee was singed to Birdman’s ‘Cash Money Records’ but left the music label, citing creative differences as the main reasons yet maintaining that it there was absolutely no bad blood saying;
“I was there with for two years and the opportunity was a great opportunity at the time, because of the type of deal that was done. For me, with this particular project and all of the sacrifice that went into it — recording the album for five years, I lost Chris Lighty making this album, I lost my father making this album — the sh– I was putting into this album, I’m not compromising my vision for it. So if I feel like if, in the slightest way, we ain’t facilitating everything necessary for the vision to be seen and executed in the way I’m envisioning this sh– for the last five years, let me live and die in my own own inequity.”
Unfortunately for us Busta fans, we still are yet to know about just when that album will drop but if this song is anything to go by, then it definitely is going to be a lot different from what we know and love him for..
Busta has featured (and been featured by) some very notable names in the music industry and he now adds to his list by featuring Tory Lanez and Vybz Kartel in what is now your record of the week, ‘Girlfriend’.
Watch as his fast paced hip hop artist channels in some patois.
