Busta Rhymes Working on Joint LP With Mystery Partner

Jay-Z and Kanye West just delivered their collaborative effort, Watch the Throne; Baby recently confirmed to XXLMag.com that Lil Wayne and Drake will release a joint LP as well; and Jim Jones revealed that him and Cam’ron will also be dropping a disc together. Fans can add another anticipated duo to the list. Legendary showman Busta Rhymes revealed to XXLMag.com that not only has he partnered up with a friend for his first group LP since the days of Leaders of the New School, but the project is “already in the works.”

“I’m not allowed to discuss that yet,” Busta told XXL, keeping the name of his co-conspirator a secret. “It’s something I’ve been waiting to do for 26 years with a friend of mine that I’ve known for 26 years. I’ve been professionally recording for 20 years, but I’ve been trying to get on about five or six years before I actually got on. This is one of the first people that I met.”

Although he couldn’t divulge who his partner is or how and when the opus would be coming out, Bus did shared that the recording process has been shaping up quickly.

“We actually officially started three months ago,” Bussa Bus said. “I got my solo album but we’re approaching the midway point of that collab album. It’s gonna be one of the most amazing situations I think I ever did. I haven’t had that kind of comfort recording in a long fucking time. Actually, I haven’t had this kind of comfort recording the way I have in the last year, year and half in my whole career. The dynamic of the ass beating that I’m gonna start giving out is gonna be at a whole ‘nother magnitude.”

Before the duo album, Busta will release his new solo album. He’s recorded over 200 songs for the project and says he’ll be announcing when the album will be coming out and through which company shortly.

    I don’t think he really fucked w/NORE like that 20+yrs ago, but we know L.O.N.S. and Tribe was close and came up around the same time. Tribe came out a lil earlier. But i’ve been wanting this since Red and Meth dropped a collabo. Shit you could put an entire lp together of shit that Tip and Bus have already done together anyways!
