After releasing The Big Bang in 2006, Busta Rhymes' life became engulfed in controversy and tragedy. Now, two years removed from the drama, Busta is back to silence his critics and address the haters with his new album, I'm Blessed.

SOHH had a chance to hear a preview to Busta's eight-studio album, last night at a private listening session in Manhattan. The rapper (born Trevor Smith) took the opportunity to inform invited guest that his spirits were high despite enduring a tumultuous two years, which saw the Flipmode General loose the life of his best friend and bodyguard Israel Ramirez; and face two counts of assaults charges and a DUI, ending in Busta being sentenced to three years probation.

The self-proclaimed "Godfather of the Club Banger's" was in old form as he unleashed the first single- the anthemic, "Don't Touch Me (Throw Da Water On'em)," produced by Sean C and LV of Grind Music productions (known for their work on Jay-Z's American Gangster). Followed by the introspective "Decisions," featuring Mary J. Blige, Jamie Fox and Common, Busta Bus addresses the situations that clouded his life during the last two years and he thanks those who supported him through the struggle.

The Cool & Dre produced, "Don't Believe Them" featuring Akon and T.I.
finds Busta and Tip addressing the Grand Hustle CEO's arrest right before last years BET Awards, marking the first time Tip went on record about the gun charge.

The album also features appearances from Linkin Park, T-Pain along with production from longtime associates Pharrell and the legendary DJ Scratch.

I'm Blessed is slated to hit stores this June/July via Aftermath/Interscope.

- thank God he changed the album name, Back On My B.S. was horrible
- lol at his first single again not being a Dre produced track
- the single is creative I guess but I'm not feeling it, sounds like the old Busta --> completley off beat and the production is wack (for those who haven't heard it (http://stealth.to/?id=7uld6gnxdt15kmo1juqu2t5pi1lj34)
- not too sure about the T-Pain feature

Busta Rhymes has titled his eighth studio album Blessed Rap-Up.com has learned. The first single, “Don’t Touch Me (Throw Da Water On ‘Em),” can be listened to here. The album arrives in stores and online retailers on June 17th.

please ...

noT.I. (-> wack)
no Akon (-> annoying as hell)
no T-Pain (-> might even be MORE annoying than Akon..)

only thing missing to destroy this record completely is a lil wayne feature ... PLEASE NO!

Common & Mary J sounds good though ...more in the vein of Big Bang and less like a mainstream hit guarantee crap record..

lol, you trippin.  ;)

Of the mentioned tracks/features, the Kon/Tip track sounded the most interesting..
I have a feeling that the Common/Blige/Fox track ends up in the "Coulda been" department, as in better on paper than in reality.

- the single is creative I guess but I'm not feeling it, sounds like the old Busta --> completley off beat and the production is wack (for those who haven't heard it

I don't feel it either, I bet it ends up as a street single which doesn't make the album, or it's released as a megaremix a la "Touch It"..

an aftermath release with no dre on it? weird...

as for the first single, i like how busta is flowing again, his rippin that shit to threads but the beat lacks someshit...not really feeling it so far either...i think it'l go down as a street single...he should have got neptunes to make him a g'd up fast paced futuristic club join kinda or some genesis shit they did..


hopefully busta finds his old flow again but i hope the production backs his flow up, dont want him spittin over garbage

I bet they put at least one dre track on there ...there's definitely left over stuff from the detox sessions laying around. even if dre is not mentioned in the news, I think it's safe to say he at least has one beat on the record ...it's an aftermath release after all ..every math release had at least one dre beat on it (50, em, truth hurts, busta, game, wash, firm, aftermath sampler..)

Nice to hear he changed that title - the first (?) was horrible.

For me, Busta is hit or miss - hope he'll be on Big Bang level.

Busta said several times Dre is on the record and even said he won't make the same mistake as on the Big Bang where Dre didn't produce the first single (or any other single for that matter). Altough this record again ain't produced by Dre and is tagged as the first track from the new album. I just hope it's a warm up single and Dre produced the first official one.

I loved that single the first couple of times I heard it, but it already works on my nerves.

Guest appearences look kinda shitty; T-pain and T.I? Come on now Buss! Lets see some talented artists. Fuck the mainstream!

AND THERE BETTER BE SOME FUCKIN DILLA ON THERE!

Busta, T.I., Akon, Cool & Dre + a real topic (T.I. arrest i'm sure amongst other things) = heat

that's all im'a say for now..will wait for the album 2 drop and my point will be proven right..
