Busta Rhymes has a solid lineup of guest features planned for his upcoming album, Extinction Level Event 2, due out later this fall.
Busta tells XXL that he has collaborated with Eminem, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Q-Tip on the project.
“I’ve got a six-minute record with Eminem that sounds like we are respectfully trying to battle each other in a way that you probably never heard us battle in our entire careers on a record,” he says. “So it’s lot of real incredibly golden moments for us on this project.”
The rapper has already selected “Thank You,” which he produced himself, as the next single. “It features Kanye West, it features Lil Wayne, and it features Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest,” Busta says. “That’s definitely going to be one of the more immediate, eventful moments that you are gonna be able to experience from this phenomenal body of work.”
The disc, which is the sequel to Busta’s 1998 classic Extinction Level Event: The Final World Front, is slated to arrive in November.
