Busta Rhymes

The wait is over! A few months after the release of “Back on My B.S.,” Busta Rhymes has announced a release date for his forthcoming studio album, “The Chemo.” The rapper stated that his ninth studio effort will be released on July 6, just in time for the hot summer days.

The record will feature musical collaborations with Trey Songz, Wyclef and Diddy’s Dirty Money. Producers such as Boi-1da, Ryan Leslie, Mistah F.A.B Swizz Beatz, Rockwilder, Ted Smooth, J Dilla, Nottz, Focus, DJ Scratch, Cool & Dre and Dr. Dre also worked on the project.

In a recent interview the MC stated, “We about at the point were we about to take it out of the oven from baking add a couple of the final additives and preservatives and seasonings and feed people the full course meal.” As for explaining the title of the album, Busta added that the name was as a reference to the dying and struggling state of the music industry.

Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr., better known as Busta Rhymes, began his musical career at 16 as a member of the hip hop crew “Leaders of the New School” alongside fellow rappers Charlie Brown, Dinco D, and Cut Monitor Milo. Their debut album “A Future Without a Past” was released in 1991, followed in 1993 by “T.I.M.E. (The Inner Mind’s Eye).” But it was with the release of his 1996 solo hit single, “Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check” from his platinum album, “The Coming” that the rapper’s notoriety and popularity became evident.

His second album, “When Disaster Strikes,” which was released in 1997, produced the hit singles “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See” and “Dangerous.” A year later in 1998, his third album, “Extinction Level Event (Final World Front)” was recorded, spawning the hit singles “Gimme Some More” and “What’s It Gonna Be?” featuring Janet Jackson.

Over the years the rapper has released eight studio albums that have featured some of hip hop’s biggest names such Pharrell and Diddy on the hit singles, “Pass The Courvoisier Part 2,” Kelis and will.i.am on “I Love My Chick,” and T-Pain “Hustler’s Anthem 09.”

Let’s hope for Rhymes that “The Chemo,” will inspire his fans and others to make the album successful.
