Busta Rhymes dropped his last album ‘Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God’ back in 2020 after an eight-year wait. It had features coming from Kendrick Lamar, Q-Tip, Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, Rakim, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and more. Busta recently revealed that another album is on its way.
The 11th studio album by Busta Rhymes is cooked and ready to be served. In the early hours of Tuesday morning January 11, the New York rap veteran shared the news on Instagram, along with words of support for regular partner DJ Kay Slay.
New Album Done. @djkayslay you on my mind while I’m recording King. Keep Fighting!! We need you and we got too much shit left to do.. Thank you @khrysis_ #SOULCOUNCIL.
The message was sent to DJ Kay Slay in response to reports that he was suffering with COVID-19. His brother informed HipHopDX on Thursday January 6 that he was in a recovery mode. Busta Rhymes also teased new music from Khrysis, as well as mentioning Dr. Dre and DJ Kay Slay in his songs.
It’s not surprising that he finished his next album in such a short amount of time. He detailed how he spends every day of his life in the studio in a Vulture interview from 2020. He claims to be recording for the next project and the project after that and the project after that. It’s a never-ending process. One can never have enough of hot music and dope records, according to Busta Rhymes.
