Busta Rhymes is headlining the eight annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival this weekend (July 14) in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Billed as “Busta Rhymes & Friends,” the veteran emcee took to Twitter on Tuesday (July 10) to allude to a potential reunion with his former group, Leaders Of The New School. Busta said “stay tuned” and included a recent photograph of him pictured with L.O.N.S. cohorts Charlie Brown and Dinco D.
Brooklyn Bodega, organizers of the festival, acknowledged the tweet to HipHopDX as a potential allusion to the weekend show, but could not confirm or deny its validity.

The Leaders Of The New School, which also included fourth member Cut Monitor Milo, released two albums, 1991’s A Future Without A Past and 1993’s T.I.M.E. The group was also part of the Native Tongues collective, including A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and Jungle Brothers.
After Busta Rhymes pursued a solo career in the mid-1990s, the Leaders disbanded, after appearing on his 1995 debut The Coming.
UPDATE: RapRadar.com confirmed that yesterday (July 14) Busta Rhymes appeared on stage with Leaders Of The New School at the 8th annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival.
