Gym rat and veteran rapper Busta Rhymes has let loose his new album, Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God. Stream the star-studded effort below via Apple Music or Spotify.
Extinction Level Event 2 comes eight years after his last full-length, 2012’s Year of the Dragon. It also serves as long-awaited sequel to Busta’s original Extinction Level Event: The Final World Front from 1998.
Assisting Busta on his comeback record are a number of equally prominent artists, including A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip, Mariah Carey, Anderson. Paak, Rick Ross, Mary J. Blige, Rakim, Pete Rock, and Rapsody. Perhaps the most interesting name listed, however, is Kendrick Lamar. For the Compton MC, his Busta collaboration “Look Over Your Shoulder” marks his first release of 2020.
The origins of “Look Over Your Shoulder” technically date back a few years. The joint track was initially leaked around 2018, and then recirculated again in 2019. Even so, at this point — more than three years removed from the damn good DAMN. — we’re happy to hear from Kung Fu Kenny at all.
