“When I went over to Universal Motown, I decided to record a whole new album. I kept a few songs from the B.O.M.B. project, but 80 percent is new. When I got back with Sylvia Rhone, it just reinvigorated me in a whole new way.”
“I’m in a great situation. New label, new money, new excitement, new sound, new album, just new everything. I just feel like I’m being born again or something…The album sounds like the substantial hip-hop that has been missing from the game for a long time…That traditional boom bap - hard kicks, hard snares, solid bass lines, records that sound real melodic because they’re very incredibly structured songs, very lyrical records. It’s the well-rounded balance of what a real hip-hop album is supposed to feel like.”
“So now I am back on the wild out and having fun and real lyrical shit. Not that that was every compromised, but now I got the balance of all of those ingredients gives you the Busta Rhymes that the people have always loved.”
“Unfortunately, no Dilla beats. It’s not because I didn’t want Dilla beats, it’s because I tried to go through the proper procedure to get tracks from Dilla’s stash. It was difficult was because of the dealings with the estate. I used to be able to call Dilla’s mother and handle my B.I. with Ma Dukes and everything would be cool. The estate implemented some sort of new way of doing things when it comes to getting a Dilla track. I’m not saying they’re not doing the right thing, I respect whatever the process is, it just wasn’t conduvice in terms of the time limits of doing the album. I’ve been trying to deal with about getting a Dilla track for well over a year and a half. So I told myself that I needed a second to step back to figure out a new way to approach the situation–to figure out another approach so i might have more succesful results next time.”
“I’m trying to implement the boom-bap. “Because it’s time for the records to feel like when you in the club … they’re knocking your block off, and they still got lyrics to ‘em and they still making you feel good with the catchy choruses.”
