Busta Rhymes has been cooking up new music in the lab for his upcoming untitled album, formerly named E.L.E. 2. The Conglomerate Records chief recently chopped it up with RWD Mag, revealing that the LP will drop in October or November and sport a “traditional boom bap” sound.
“It’s gonna be based on a lot of different things, for this album particularly it’s just where I’m at in life currently my whole perspective on how I view things,” he explained. “I think that’s what people always want to know when you put these albums out, these albums document moments in time. It’s going to completely represent in the most accurate way what’s going on with me and what’s going on in general from my perspective with the world, with my immediate circle and what everyone can identify with in the current day. When it’s all said and done, this album when we look back I want people to be able to say that this album documented a very vivid, accurate, powerful reflection of what was going on at that time so you’re gonna get a lot of everything based on subject, content, concepts, it’s gonna be a real diversified album.”
He further elaborated on the project, which may or may not be released independently, by explaining that the sound will channel the classic Hip Hop sound of the golden age.
“That one silver lining that sews the whole album together consistently is that you’re gonna get a real thorough Hip Hop album that feels good, traditional boom bap Hip Hop shit that I think we have missed for a while,” he continued. “One thing that hasn’t been happening on a consistent level is just that golden era boom bap and it’s feeling like it’s starting to come back around now and I think the world is ready to embrace that with open arms at the highest level. It’s a good time for an album like mine, which is scheduled to come around October or November. So look forward to that.”
