Busta Rhymes is bringing together the producer Mount Olympus for his upcoming LP. On Monday, Busta announced that Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, and Pharrell Williams will be joining him to produce his upcoming LP, Blockbusta, which drops on Nov. 24.
“I’m so grateful that you chose me to be a part of your legacy,” Timbaland said in a video where the team discussed the album. “Timeless.”
“You really feel illuminated. This illumination is good because I think people are going to be able to get and feel that,” Pharrell added.
After the quick Zoom-like chat, a visual of a volcano erupting plays before sharing that the four production stars will executive produce the record. Rhymes refers to Pharrel as the “pharaoh,” Timbaland as “the king,” while Beatz is “the student.”
Busta Rhymes released Blockbusta‘s single “Luxury Life” with Coi Leray in early September and also tapped BIA for “Beach Ball” in late June.
The upcoming LP marks his 10th studio album release and follows 2020’s Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God, which featured collaborations with Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Rick Ross, Anderson .Paak, Mary J. Blige, and Mariah Carey.
The new LP will be released by Busta’s The Conglomerate Entertainment label, which is distributed by Epic Records and Sony Music.
Busta is currently on tour in Europe with 50 Cent and Jeremih for the Final Lap Tour, with stops scheduled in Germany, Poland, France, and the United Kingdom through late November.
Most recently, Busta joined Chris Webby on single “Oh Boy” and Sean Paul and Skillibeng for the “Summa Hot Remix.” Over the summer, he also rapped a verse in Grafh’s “Look Out the Window.”
