New York rapper Busta Rhymes has come forward to clear up exactly what the situation is with fellow rapper N.O.R.E. and his Conglomerate Records. After saying NORE had become a part of the "family," Busta says NORE is not signed to Conglomerate but they do have a partnership.
"I didn't really sign N.O.R.E. to the Conglomerate," Busta said in an interview. "We did a business partnership, because N.O.R.E. already got Militainment poppin'. He got his own company, he CEO of his own sh*t already. So when we decided to come together, it was a merging of the company, a merging of the brands, a merging of the corporations and just forming a more powerful conglomerate. It's really a Conglomerate/Militainment thing." (Swaggatory)

"It was pretty much an organic thing. We always been a part of each other's development and career growth…So we just finally decided as brethren, usually friends help each other secure the win."
