Busta Rhymes has announced this week he will be dropping his ninth solo album ‘The Chemo‘ on Independence Day, July 4th.
“When itâ€™s sizzling in these streets, I think that is the most appropriate time to let go of this heat that Iâ€™m sitting on,” Busta Rhymes told HipHollywood.com. “I been cooking in the kitchen and itâ€™s been feeling good. We about at the point were we about to take it out of the oven from baking add a couple of the final additive and preservatives and seasonings and feed people the full course meal.”
A few months ago Busta talked about the upcomming project.
“The new album is 80 percent finished, and it’s called The Chemo. Itâ€™s the first time I’m announcing the name of the album. Itâ€™s self-explanatory. Weâ€™re coming to kill the cancer in music. I ainâ€™t trying to offend anybody. We gotta re-establish the understanding that the perspective of hip-hop is to make music that always felt undeniable and unprecedented and we set a standard. I feel that starting to happen again with the likes of the Raekwon Cuban Linx II, and a lot of projects are starting to feel like theyâ€™re coming again. A lot of projects are feeling like they remind us of what hip-hop is really supposed to feel and sound like.”
The Chemo is the follow-up to Busta Rhymeâ€™s 2009 album Back on My B.S. which debuted at #6 on Billboardâ€™s Top 200 Chart.
