New Music Review: Busta Rhymes - "Back on My B.S."

After the bomb (and I don’t mean that in a good way) that Busta Rhymes dropped back in 2006 titled, The Big Bang, a great deal of fans started to doubt whether Mr. Rhymes was going to be capable to delivering the same kind of heat heard on albums like Anarchy and Genesis.

Before all hope was lost, radio listeners were given a taste of what Busta and his crew were working on with the song, “Don’t Touch Me… (Throw Da Water on Them) during the fall of 2008. It was with this single that Flipmode fanatics everywhere rejoiced as we were treated to glimpses of the old Busta Rhymes.

Rhymes’ newest record, released May 19th, teeters on the edge between throwback and club banger. Tracks like “World Go Round” support Busta’s rhymes with the kind of synth-bass beats found in a techno club but still have the substance to keep the die-hard fans happy.

It’s understandable why Busta has to play devil’s advocate with his current, mainstream sound but it’s good to hear that he’s found a stable balance between the past and present.
