After a stellar career spanning over three decades, Busta Rhymes is showing no signs of slowing down, confirming a new culture-shifting album is on the way.
Grammy Award-winning super producer Swizz Beatz confirmed the news during a “Busta Rhymes appreciation post” on Instagram Sunday (May 14).
Swizz paid tribute to the New York legend declaring he’s been “kicking ass since” since the 80s when Busta Rhymes began his rap career as a founder member of Leaders of the New School.
“It’s 2023 my bro got all new deals, all new music coming out,” Swizz shared in his homage video. “I just want to take the time to say that I appreciate my brother Busta Rhymes for his longevity, his distinctive style voice. I wish everybody a long career like Busta Rhymes. He’s the biggest deal.”
He also shouted out Bus-A-Bus for “headlining every major festival, tour, show in 2023,” including guest appearances with Janet Jackson and Mary J. Blige within the span of a week.
“Wait til you hear this new music this man got,” Swizz added before confirming he’s co-producing Busta’s upcoming album alongside some of Hip-Hop’s biggest producers. Check out the video below.
