Busta Rhymes Dropped?!? If So Interscope Is Stupid!!!

7 07 2008


Lets keep names out of this.  What kind of label would drop an artist whose last album was platnium.  Appeared on the biggest albums of the year.  Considered a legend in his respective genre.  And, one of the last veterans who can sell and wait last but not least.  TALENTED as the fuck.  Busta Rhymes’ last album was the Big Bang.  It went platnium.  It has sold 1.2 million copies to date.  Ok…Now I saw this shit on THISIS50.COM, and when I saw it I immediately thought he had got into it with someone because no one is stupid enough to drop Busta.  Apparently, Electra shouldn’t feel so bad now.  Interscope should join the club now if this is true.  Don’t Touch Me Now is vintage Busta!  And, We Made It with Likin Park is FIYA!  Plus, the new shit he got with the game’s hottest producer (Bangledesh aka Mr. A Milli) is crazy too.  Interscope should be ashamed of themselves.  I hope this isn’t true.  


Anyway, here’s the news.



According to inside label sources at ThisIs50.com, Busta Rhymes is the next artist to be dropped from Interscope Records. The announcement comes less than a week after Shady Records artist Obie Trice was released from his contract, and in the same year Joell Ortiz severed ties with Aftermath Records.

Per the reports, the veteran rapper and Flipmode Squad leader had a conflict withInterscope President Jimmy Iovine that ended with the two parting ways. Busta Rhymes had been working on his second Aftermath/Interscope album, Blessed. A number of songs from that album have already surfaced on the Internet, including “Don’t Touch Me (Remix)” featuring an all-star list of emcees new and old.

Since signing with the label in 2005 after a tenure at J Records after starting his successful career with Elektra Records, Busta Rhymes released The Big Bang.

After appearing on Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III, Busta Rhymes also has confirmed appearances on Nas’ Untitled album and The Game’s L.A.X., making him the only artist to appear on what many are billing, the three biggest rap albums of 2008.
