Busta Rhymes made news recently when he announced that there would be a collaboration with Eminem on his upcoming album E.L.E.2 (Extinction Level Event 2), which is slated to be released sometime this year. Busta and Marshall are known for their unique flows and their ability to squeeze their multisyllabic rhymes into jam-packed verses. The initial hype for the track was set by Busta and in a Vlad TV interview with Scoop DeVille, the producer of the song, the expectations were confirmed and raised considering the details he revealed. 

While Busta Rhymes and Eminem have veered off from their old more “hardcore hip-hop” influenced style in recent years, it appears that their upcoming track will be more in that vein. Busta had previously revealed that their collaboration would be a “six-minute record that sounds like we are respectfully trying to battle each other in a way that you probably never heard us battle in our entire careers on a record.” Producer Scoop DeVille provided more details about the song and described the impact he think it will have on hip-hop:

“That’s the next record that’s going to, I’d say destroy the streets of New York and Hip Hop in a lot of ways. That record is something that we’ve been putting together for a minute. It’s not just like an overnight thing. We’ve been trying to make this THE record to bring back Busta in a major way. Not only are you going to get the song, you’re going to get a video, you’re going to get the old Buss, old Em and it’s like six minutes of just rhyming–64 bars Em, 60 bars Em of just destroying it, it’s insane. It’s 64 bars, chorus, 60 bars chorus, done.”

Great news to say the least. Even though Busta and Eminem are past their primes as artists, I have no doubt that they still have the ability to pull off this kind of track perfectly. With prime production spots recently, particularly on Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city (‘Poetic Justice’, ‘The Recipe’), I have faith that Scoop DeVille will come through and live up to his word. Busta Rhymes had some great moments on his recent collaboration mixtape with Q-Tip The Abstract And The Dragon and to many Eminem is still the “Rap God”, so we will be heavily anticipating this.
