Busta Rhymes began his professional career as a member of the Long Island hip-hop quartet Leaders of the New School (LONS.) in 1991 with their debut LP A Future Without A Past on Electra Records. The LP along with his stellar performance on A Tribe Called Quest's classic posse cut “Scenario” was a critically-acclaimed success and helped to establish Busta as one of hip-hop’s most exciting MCs. Unfortunately L.O.N.S broke up due to creative differences in 1993 shortly after releasing their sophomore LP T.I.M.E. (The Inner Mind's Eye).
In 1996, Busta Rhymes unleashed his solo debut, The Coming, which featured the hit song “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check.” The single was the first of 14 RIAA gold and platinum records with Electra as a solo artist and founder of Flipmode Squad. He would earn an additional five more on J Records and Aftermath/Interscope. His 2006 album, The Big Bang, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.About The New Album
Back On My B S, which features production by Ron Browz, Cool & Dre, Ty Fyyfe, Focus, Pharrell, Mr. Porter, Jelly Roll, long-time collaborator DJ Scratch, and guests appearances by some of today’s premiere hip-hop and R&B recording artists including Common, Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx & John Legend (Decision), T.I. & Akon (Don’t Believe Them) and Estelle (World Go Round), Back On My B S represents a return to basics for Busta Rhymes. Nowhere is this more evident than on “Arab Money,” the LP’s searing lead single produced by Ron Browz, which is built around a pulsating drum track, rhythmic horns and eastern strings pays homage to the culture of the Middle East. “Hustler's Anthem 09” featuring T-Pain with it's booming bass line and funky hand clap beat stands out as a street anthem dedicated to the men and women who hustle on daily basis to enjoy the good things in life. Keeping with this theme Busta delivers the dark and gritty joint “Respect My Conglomerate” featuring Lil Wayne and Jadakiss and produced by Focus. “Respect My Conglomerate” is centered around an infectious beat, Gothic strings, a brooding piano and hypnotic strings that create a track that is irresistible.See My Videos Respect My Conglomerate http://video.umrg.com/bustarhymes/conglomerate-betversion/quicktime.asp Hustler’s Anthem 09 http://video.umrg.com/bustarhymes/hustlasanthem09/quicktime.asp Arab Money remix http://video.umrg.com/bustarhymes/arabmoneyremix-a/quicktime.asp
