Rapper Busta Rhymes has revealed the tentative release date for his upcoming 9th solo album, titled The Chemo.
According to Busta, the album will hit stores as The United States celebrates Independence Day on July 4th.
When its sizzling in these streets, I think that is the most appropriate time to let go of this heat that Im sitting on, Busta Rhymes told HipHollywood.com. I been cooking in the kitchen and its been feeling good. We about at the point were we about to take it out of the oven from baking add a couple of the final additive and preservatives and seasonings and feed people the full course meal.
According to reports, Busta Rhymes has tapped artists like Dirty Money, Trey Songz, Wyclef and others on his upcoming release.
I called the album The Chemo because it seems like the industry and music overall is dying slowly,” Busta told Billboard in late 2009.
“The cancer that’s stricken the business is killing the music, not only from a business standpoint, but also the value of the content and the creativity behind it. I just want to start the first stage of chemotherapy treatment that needs to take place and hopefully inspire others to do their part and contribute to different stages of the cure.”
The Chemo is the follow-up to Busta Rhymes May 2009 album Back on My B.S. which debuted at #6 on Billboards Top 200 Chart.
