Busta Rhymes Comments On Star-Studded Remix, Album
"[The original] 'Don't Touch Me' is a record that I love very much because it's a song that kind of brings me back to the feeling of vintage Busta Rhymes," he told MTV. "Like that hyperactive, feel-good-energy, wilding-in-a-club, carefree, free spirit. Throwing up drinks around and wet up people and just have fun. The remix [click to listen] consists of Reek Da Villain, who is a new artist from Flipmode; Spliff Star, the official street corner colonel; Game; Lil Wayne; Nas and Big Daddy Kane. So this remix is definitely a movie, and I had a fun, fun time putting it together with them guys. I definitely want to salute them artists because I'm definitely a big fan of all the dudes that came through and participated on the remix. We're more than likely to be having a phenomenal video for the remix as well, so, you know, you got a lot to look forward to from the kid, Bussa Bus!"
We've already heard his recent single, which features guest vocals from Linkin Park. For another track, he's got even more assistance from top emcees.
"The record was inspired by the situation that transpired with T.I. right after the BET Hip-Hop Awards. My legal situations were current, and his legal situations were current, and Akon had his, you know, history of legal situations in the past ... We wanted people to as bad as things might look for us sometimes just know that it ain't over until you say it's over at the end of the day. 'Cause nobody can really dictate what the outcome of your destiny, what your life is going to end up becoming, unless you let it happen that way."
Blessed is going to be out in July.
