“Look man…. I’ma say this right now… This @BustaRhymes album bruh? Change your “top albums of the year lists”…….now…for your own good,” he wrote on Twitter. “Good God Almighty…..”

9th followed up his tweet with an Instagram message reaffirming his admiration for the album. He also noted that he doesn’t have any skin in the game, so to speak, since he didn’t do any production for the project.
“I’m TELLING you bruh…..and NO, I’m not on the album,” 9th added. “I don’t need to be on an album to recognize good music. I’m a fan/student/lover of music first.”
Earlier this year, Busta talked about the untitled album in an interview with Billboard. The Flipmode founder called it his “most compelling body of work” and revealed he’s been working on it for the last nine years.
“The only thing I am going to say is that this is definitely going to be my most compelling body of work that I’ve ever put together,” he told Billboard. “I haven’t dropped an album in retail since 2009. I am really proud of this project. I was very patient with it and took my time. Patience was probably one of my greatest weapons when putting this project together, because there was things I ended up stumbling on that ended up on the album years into the recording.”
Busta hasn’t dropped a solo project since 2015’s The Return Of The Dragon (The Abstract Went On Vacation) mixtape. His last album, 2012’s Year Of The Dragon, was released for free on Google Play.
