on a follow up to the duo’s album, Chemistry.
do have that album coming out," Buckshot told AllHipHop.com. "As a
matter of fact it’s called The Formula. It’s gonna be a good album, but
it ain’t gonna be topics that will make a lot of people happy."
The release comes
on the heels of Chemistry, a 2005 9th Wonder-produced collaboration featuring
appearances from the Boot Camp Clik and the Justus League.
In addition to
being a member of the group Black Moon, Buckshot serves as co-head of Duck Down
Records as well as a key component of the Boot Camp Clik, a unit comprised of
Heltah Skeltah (Sean Price and Rock), O.G.C. (Originoo Gun Clappaz) (Starang
Wondah, Top Dog and Louisville Sluggah).
9th Wonder has
earned critical acclaim as one-third of the North Carolina-based group Little
Brother and a member of the Justus League, a collective featuring Little Brother
(Phonte Rapper Big Pooh and 9th Wonder), Big Dho, Cesar Comanche, the Away Team
(Sean Boog and Khrysis), Chaundon, DJ Flash, Edgar Allen Floe, Joe Scudda, L.E.G.A.C.Y.

While many artists
strive to concoct a masterpiece, Buckshot admits to comparing his forthcoming
opus to a more classic literary creation.
"I want to
be like Frankenstein creating a monster," said the rapper. "If you
know the true story of Frankenstein, he wasn’t a monster. That’s a real deep
analogy-people just didn’t understand him. That’s the reason why The Formula
is gonna be ill, it’s gonna be based on the monster that people created."
