Exclusive: Busta Rhymes Retiring After Next Album?



After four years of passionately working on his 10th solo album, rapper Busta Rhymes is almost ready to drop Extinction Level Event 2.

During a recent interview with the Brooklyn native, the rapper exclusively shared with HipHollywood why his forthcoming album is so near and dear to his heart.

“I hope that the people really appreciate every molecule, proton, neutron, electron, every component that went into this project because I don’t think I ever made an album like this,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve ever sacrificed as much to make an album like this.”

He continued, “I don’t think that I’m going to be too anxious to put as much into another album like this for a minute.” So does this mean that the rapper is retiring from music? Not quite.

Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr, the rapper’s legal name, goes on to explain that after he drops the album, he will be focusing on enjoying the ride. “When it comes out I’m going to be so busy touring and promoting it and enjoying sharing it with the world, I’m not going to be in a rush to go back into the studio to do the next one,” he told us.

The 41-year-old shared that he is hoping to drop the anticipated album sometime late April early May. “I’m like at the 95 % mark. I’m definitely staring eyeball to eyeball with the finish line, I will be crossing it soon,” the rapper said.

We were also told that there will be a group of friends and comradery coming off the album.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
