Busta Rhymes is gearing up to release his 11th studio album and first since Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath Of God dropped back in 2020. For the new album, he’s pulling out all the punches. The project is hilariously titled BlockBusta and he told TMZ that it’s officially due for release on November 24. He’s making sure that the album lives up to its title and delivers a full-on Blockbuster. The rap legend did that by recruiting three more legends to serve as executive producers on the project. Pharrell, Timbaland, and Swizz Beatz, three of the most legendary producers in rap history, are all on board to collaborate with Busta.
He’s already teased the album off with two singles. The first is “Beach Ball” a single he dropped in collaboration with BIA back in June. The track has already racked up over 2 million streams on Spotify and 10 million views on YouTube. The second single dropped last month, the Coi Leray featuring “Luxury Life.” It’s on a similarly successful path as the first single topping 1 million Spotify streams with well over 7 million views on YouTube. Check out the music video for the single below.

Busta Rhymes Announces New Album “BlockBusta”
Busta Rhymes is still seen by many as a legend in every right. Last month, Funk Flex brought up the rapper doing a potential “Verzuz,” but doesn’t think anybody could hold a candle to him. “You want me to tell you who would beat JAY-Z at a Verzuz? Hands down embarrass him? Busta Rhymes would spank anybody in a Verzuz. There is no one that will beat Busta Rhymes as a solo artist in a Verzuz,” he claimed.
Bringing up Jay-Z feels particularly relevant given Busta’s most recent single. his Coi Leray collaboration features a prominent sample of Jay’s track “Ain’t No…” What do you think of the production trio Busta Rhymes assembled to work on his new album? Let us know in the comment section below.
