Busta Rhymes is dropping a new album at the end of the month
Back in late 1998, Busta Rhymes released his third studio album E. L. E (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front. The album was for sure a landmark in the New Yorker’s career. The 19-song tracklist included the rapper’s highest charting track; What’s It Gonna Be Like with Janet Jackson. It peaked at number 3 on Billboard Hot 100. The album was also nominated at the 42nd Grammy Awards, in the Best Rap Album category.
For the past decade, Busta’s fans have been anticipating a follow up to the original E. L. E. Plus rumors about the album’s sequel have been making rounds throughout the decade. In August of this year, Busta Rhymes’ friend and legend comedian Chris Rock announced in an Instagram video that E. L. E 2: The Wrath Of God was on the way. “You n****s can’t fuck with the God Busta Rhymes!” ranted the comedian before announcing the second installment 22 years after the original album came out.
According to Busta Rhymes’ Twitter page, the ground-shaking LP has finally got a release date and a cover art. “THE PROPHECY WILL BE FULLFILLED…10.30.20 #ELETHEWRATHOFGOD”, wrote the fast-paced rhymer with an image that appears to be the cover of the project.
This will be the 10th full length album from Busta Rhymes since his 2012 Year Of The Dragon.
