Double triple check, Busta Rhymes is back

"Double triple check. Thought I left a couple bags on the step"

I love Drivetribe because it allows me to talk about kitchen knives (on Foodtribe), Kimi's birthday, Rolls-Royce emblems, watches and rap music on the same day.

Long story short: Busta Rhymes is back.

YouTube evil algorithms occasionally get it right and the other day, as I was watching documentaries on the current state of the economy in California and the resulting diaspora (apparently everyone's moving to Texas..?), YouTube thought I'd appreciate listening to Busta Rhymes' latest record called 'YUUUU'. Well, yes. I actually appreciated that.

To be honest, I didn't really like Anderson .Paak verse that much but Busta's verse and chorus is fire. I especially like Busta's bridge starting at 1:42 (hence the headline).

Busta Rhymes (real name Trevor George Smith Jr) was born in Brooklyn, New York City and became widely popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He's sold over 9 million records and if I absolutely had to pick one song to summarize Busta's career, it'd have to be 'I know What You Want', with Mariah Carey, chiefly because it helped him get more airplay and attention from people who weren't necessarily into hip-hop.

After an 8-year hiatus (his previous album was released in 2012), Busta is back with Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God, scheduled for release on October 30 with Conglomerate and Empire Distribution.
