Busta Rhymes+J Dilla / Dillagence
Here's little something I found, Mick Boogie Presents Busta Rhymes+J Dilla / Dillagence. It took me a while to digest this mixtape, at first I was like ...nnnnot so good, then it grew on me.
I saw Busta Rhymes live a few times and I must admit this guy knows how to put on a show and this cat's been around since hip hop's early years (remember Leaders Of The New School and The Scenario from A Tribe Called Quest). He had a few solid albums however this one is very different, with the help of J Dilla on the beats, there's no formula, no R&B featurings just straight hip hop. There's a couple of head bangers but it's just not a strong album (mixtape).
The best moments of this album (mixtape) are from the featurings (Raw Diggah, Talib Kweli, Papoose. So, much love to Busta but this one falls short of my expectations but still worth checking out. You can get it for free on the Mick Boogie web site.
