We still find it hard to believe that it’s been nearly a decade a since we’ve seen an album from the legendary Queensbridge collective, Mobb Deep. The two resolved any issues they had going on a reunion tour last year in celebrations for the 20th anniversary of their debut album Juvenile Hell. After receiving such high praise and an insane response from long-time fans all around, Havoc and Prodigy decided to hit the studio for an authentic release of their new eighth studio album entitled The Infamous Mobb Deep.
Don’t let the April Fools release next week misconstrue their reunion however, as the two have composed an entirely new 17-track album full of new heat that features: NaS, Juicy J, The Lox, Mack Wilds, Snoop Dogg, Bun B, Busta Rhymes and French Montana. Along with all of the new material you can listen to after the jump, the proper release next week will feature The 1994 Infamous Sessions consisting of unreleased tracks from their original recordings.
By now, most of you should know the BEYONCÉ album, which means many rappers will begin to freestyle over some of her flawless production. Piloting that movement is Busta Rhymes and Azealia Banks adding verses to Bey’s popular raunchy “Partition” single. Listen to the pair’s new remix above, and then look for Busta’s E.L.E. 2 album along with the debut opus Broke with Expensive Taste from Yung Rapunxel to both drop this year.
The Dragon and The Abstract connect for a 21-track mixtape chock-full of material, new and old. Remixes, skits, numerous features, collaboration records all round out the new Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip project, something hip-hop heads have been anxious about since they announced it. Peep as the two take it back to the essence.
Arguably owning one of the most anticipated remaining projects of the year, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip return one last time ahead of the collaborative body of work. The two New York emcees connect for a brand new single titled “Butch & Sundance,” demonstrating their signature wordplay through going back and forth on the three-minute track. Look out for the upcoming The Abstract & The Dragon mixtape to be released at midnight.

Before the year comes to an end, one of the most anticipated projects still waiting to be released is the collaboration between Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip. Appropriately named The Abstract & The Dragon, Busta chose to break down the creation of the upcoming body of work, speaking on the artwork representing each of the artists’ legacies, with the image and colors reflecting on what A Tribe Called Quest stood for, as well as what him and Q-Tip are planning to continue. The music is set to be an embodiment of what the two have put together over the past 26 years.
Since the release of Busta Rhymes’ recent collaboration with Q-Tip, Kanye West and Lil Wayne, there’s been much conversation surrounding an upcoming collaborative project between Busta and Q. Much to hip-hop fans’ delight, we’re now presented with the artwork for their The Abstract & The Dragon full-length, which will act as a momentous return to music for both artists, taking inspiration from the artwork of A Tribe Called Quest’s 1991 album, The Low End Theory. Expect the anticipated body of work to be released on December 12th.
A$AP Ferg did the damn thing and actually got Shabba Ranks on the official remix of the song. Not only that but Ferg also threw together one of the more random remix lineups we have ever seen adding in Migos and Busta Rhymes to the mix. The crazy thing is that it worked perfectly because this remix is absolute flames and will be on repeat for quite some time.
In recent weeks, Chris Brown has been involved with personal problems that led to a brief break in his music career; but now he returns to give fans his newest offering of work. Breezy releases a new mixtape tonight entitled X Files, which is a 5-track EP of new material heard for the first time. A bonus cut titled “Main Chick” features Kid Ink, following up their recently released single “Show Me”; that received visuals last week. At the top of next year, you can look forward to Chris Brown’s upcoming sixth studio album X, which will be a double disc packaged at 20 songs in total. Listen to the mixtape after the jump, which has features only from Ludacris and Busta Rhymes.
When it comes down to choosing the most relevant songs of 2013, there’s no doubt whether Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is among the best of them, along with many other songs assisted by Pharrell. With a little under two months before the year comes to an end, DJ Tedsmooth decides to put together his own version of the huge single, but this time bringing Busta Rhymes into the equation. Thanks to a clear change in production and rhymes from the Cash Money artist, we can’t complain.
Just in case Nicki Minaj’s actual twerking in the first remix wasn’t enough, Busta Rhymes fires back with a posse remix of his single “Twerk It.” Like Baskin Robbins, he has different flavors to choose from: The islanders, the Trap Muzik aficionados, coke boys in NY, and that R&B tweak. It’s like three different songs all in one.
One of the most underrated emcees all-time has been Busta Rhymes; but not only cause of his wicked lyricism, he’s always been a stand-out rapper and setting trends that others always took years to jump on.
In the early 90’s, Bussa Buss was part of the strong island collective, Leaders of the New School Group, which he had a standout verse on ATCQ’s “Scenario” propelling his career from one 16. After releasing his debut album in The Coming a few years later highlighted by the hit-single “Woo-Hah! Got You All In Check,” Busta had to scoop up another super-animated rapper in Ol’ Dirty Bastard for the official remix.
The visuals for the remix have always been one of our favorites all-time. From the Siamese leather straitjacket in the padded room the two used to wild out in at a psychiatric center to various other scenes throughout the music video; this (along with the original) has lived in our playlist for the span of two decades.
Are you ready for the veteran, Busta Rhymes, to drop some new shit? After several teasers, he releases his new single titled “Twerk It.” If you’re judging it by the title —-yes this is for the clubs— and even more, it’s way left field.
