The TDE rapper delivers his first verse of the year on the latest single off the incoming ELE2 .
Hours out from the release of his new album, Busta Rhymes is offering one last glimpse at Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God.
On the latest single from the anxiously-anticipated project, “Look Over Your Shoulder,” the Brooklyn rap legend links with Kendrick Lamar over a Jackson 5 sample and buoyant bass licks, each repping their respective generations with poise and potent penmanship. “Look Over Your Shoulder” is the third single from Busta’s upcoming album to arrive ahead of its release, following the Vybz Kartel-assisted, “The Don & The Boss” and the sleek Anderson .Paak collaboration, “YUUU.”
But those only account for a sliver of the lengthy 10th studio album from Busta. Extinction Level Event 2 will feature contributions from Pete Rock, Rapsody, Q-Tip, M.O.P., Rakim, Mary J. Blige, and the late Ol Dirty Bastard, amongst others across its 22 tracks. The album was announced just last month by Chris Rock, who also appears throughout the album, specifically, on the intro and at the tail-end of the latest single.
