The single cover wasn’t that much of an exaggeration; Busta Rhymes and Eminem are two of rap’s superheros joining forces. They show just how big of a force they are together on “Calm Down,” which is produced by Scoop DeVille.
DeVille delivers with the sample of “Jump Around’s” well-known horn intro, and the two rappers flex all over the old school beat. Busta Rhymes is a bit more breathy than he was in “Thank You” but still sounds fluid even as he gets sidetrack by a quick rant on social media. The rappity-rap Eminem makes his appearance, doing everything from calling out bloggers to namedropping the Wake Up Show.
“Calm Down” drops on iTunes on July 1.
