I've been playing the new Busta Rhymes record "Don't Touch Me (Throw The Water On 'Em)" for the past few weeks on my show and it's fire. Lyrically and energetically, it's the return of the classic L.O.N.S/The Coming/Gimme Some More animated Busta that I used to love. The video for it has just hit the net:
But for his return to music, Busta's doing it double A side style and has also done a track with Rock band Linkin Park...
And here's the video:
Shouts to Semtex - he prefers "We Made It" but I definitely prefer "Don't Touch Me". While "We Made It" may make a dent in the mainstream charts over "Don't Touch Me", "We Made It" doesn't sound like a Busta Rhymes record to me. And while I liked Linkin Park's first album, the Collision Course album and the Fort Minor project that band member Mike Shinoda did in 2005; I'd prefer to hear Busta sounding like Busta on a Busta track.
What do you think?
