Busta Says He Gives Hip Hop What Its Missing

Posted By on March 16, 2009

    Busta Rhymes recently talked about his new label home, Universal Motown, and the overall sound of his upcoming "B.O.M.B. (Back On My Bullsh*t)" album. "I'm happy, real happy, about a lot of things," Busta said in an interview. "I'm in a great situation. New label, new money, new excitement, new sound, new album, just new everything. I just feel like I'm being born again or something."

    Busta talked about the sound of the new album saying "The album sounds like the substantial hip-hop that has been missing from the game for a long time…That traditional boom bap – hard kicks, hard snares, solid bass lines, records that sound real melodic because they're very incredibly structured songs, very lyrical records. It's the well-rounded balance of what a real hip-hop album is supposed to feel like."

    In related news, Busta released a new song today called "Cut From A Different Cloth" [listen here]. As Busta Rhymes said above, his new album will give hip hop what it's been missing and maybe he explains why in "Cut From A Different Cloth" [listen here].
