Busta Rhymes was on the Howard Stern Show Tuesday morning to promote his new album ‘Genesis’. Busta says he still thinks that O.J. Simpson is innocent of the double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Busta also thinks Mike Tyson is innocent of his rape charges. Rhymes promoted his appearance in ‘Halloween 8’ out next year and took a few phone calls from listeners.
The New York Daily News reports Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs and Busta Rhymes recently hung out drinking a bottle of Cognac and afterwards decided to rap a tune “you can give me the dough, give me the cribs, but pass the Courvoisier”. The song appears on Rhymes’ new album ‘Genesis’ out today.
MTV talked to Busta Rhymes about the delays that saw his new album’s release date go from August, then September, then October, and now November. Busta has this is definitely the drop date this time and explained the delays saying, “Number one, I like to record albums to the final, final crunch time pressure, last mile second. Second, what ended up happening was a lot of people that I was trying to work with eventually started coming through in the 11th hour. It just made sense not to sell myself short and [to] seize the moment.”
Busta Rhymes stopped by MTV’s Total Request Live with Carson Daly to promote his upcoming album ‘Genesis’ and also perform ‘Break Ya Neck’ and ‘What Is It.’ He also played the game ‘Name That Noise’ where Busta had to correctly guess an artist’s significant noise.
J Records announced Busta Rhymes will have his album debut on the new label on November 27 with Genesis. Label head Clive Davis gushed of his newly signed rapper, “Busta’s debut album for us fulfills all our expectations. It’s pure and simply electrifying and it’s Busta at his all time best. That’s good enough for me.”
