News: Busta Drops Crack Before The Bang

Busta Drops Crack Before The Bang
Welcome to New Crack City. An inside out, Flipmode version of NYC, where Busta Rhymes thrives as its supervillian, accompanied by producer-in-crime, Clinton Sparks, and a gang of henchmen: Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Papoose, Spliff Star, and Labba, among others.

The title-track, concocted in the lab by mad scientist Sparks -- as is almost the entire tape -- provides a lurid, almost carnivalesque soundscape for evil genius Busta, who foils enemy plots with his flow: "The way I murder sh-- and irritate/ and hurt your click, disintegrate/ you faggots -- wait I'll still make you/ participate, you maggots/ Make you close your shop and switch your gate/ control your block and strip your cake/ from your hustle, I make you have/ to go and try to situate..."

On "Survival," Busta sinks his teeth into the meaty beat, chews it up, and spits out lyrics like: "If you nice and if you got bite my n---- then show me/ 'cause there's no duplicating the greatness unless you clone me."

Other highlights include the swanky "Flipmode Bitch," snake-charming "Whenever We Walk In," tiptoe piano keys on "Look Who," and lyrical destruction laid down on "Followers."

This mixtape is a problem; a threatening preview of what's to come when the Leader of the New School reveals his master plan: The Big Bang.
