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.
