Guest appearences look kinda shitty; T-pain and T.I? Come on now Buss! Lets see some talented artists. Fuck the mainstream!
I guarantee you the Ti/Akon track is a standout..

Because T.I. will be lyrically on top again? lol
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..

awful combination ...uaaah my stomach hurts just thinking about it

 :puke: most of these feats will sound out of place imo .. Busta is a MC who got his very own style and going with the usual "who's hot right now" featurings will hurt the music quality without a doubt .. rap is so predictable and boring

Not with any disrespect, but are you serious?

Akon = hit or miss if you aren't tired of him
Busta = hit or miss (to me at least)
Cool & Dre = hit or miss, but usually miss
T.I. = needs very good production to sound nice

And about the subject matter... again, are you serious? Do you think this felon makes/writes better (or good) songs because he was arrested?

Yeah man... I completely agree with you, except for the last line. I think mainstream rap is predictable.

All I know is the single is cool. I'll judge the rest after the record is out.

You guys are looking too much into this, Busta's guest features are always on point and he always works with million artists for his album and only a few make the cut so we'll see who ends on the album. But as far as these tracks mentioned:

- the Common, Mary and Jamie song sounds a really emotional song, something like Been Through The Storm
- the TIP and Akon track sounds like an agressive song, something like Hurt
- Linkin Park are dope and he described the track is for all the people that made it out of the ghetto
- the TPain feature is questionable no doubt but if it's something like that Twista joint I won't mind

I don't want to see no Linkin Park on the album, I'll admit to that.

I'll love to see KRS-One one on this bitch.  :o 8)

why?

offcourse it's too early to make a judgement, but from those who liked a lot of songs from the Big Bang i perfectly understand their reaction.

i mean, overall i was satisfied with Dre's input on the album, but i don't expect Dre to be involved that much with the next album; and the current lineup don't really make up for it imo.

Sure but too many people are judging the album for this article. He had like 3 MTV articles before that where he said that he has production from Dre, Nottz, Focus, J.Dilla, Timbaland & Danja... and that he will again have guest apperances people will not exepct like on the Big Bang where he had Stevie Wonder, Rick James, Raekwon, Nas... We just gotta wait for the final product, like I've said ebfore, Busta always works with shitload of people for the albums.

i see your point  ;)

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 see your point from a marketing point of view, but what about your personal taste?

i mean, i didn't like How we do it over here ( as you may know i don't really like the typical club formula  :laugh:).
so for me, it doesn't really matter who produces the first single, as it will probably follow a certain formula anyway.

so as far as the music is concerned, i rather see non-(1st)single Dre produced tracks on this next Busta Rhymes album  :P

That's another point of view, I definetly do agree that Busta and Dre didn't have THE single for Big Bang, all their tracks could've been 2nd,3rd,4th singles but not the first (well except maybe the Missy track but that was too Candy Shop-ish for me). So, I hope they worked on that this time around.

the problem with touch it was that it came out too early ...or from the other pov...the album came too late, after all the hype created by touch it faded

..I love my chick was a real crap second single..

i love my bitch wasnt that bad of a single.. it was pop but not overly so. it got a good amount of play, i still see the vid on bet. "in the ghetto" was a bad single. good song, but that song was never gonna do well, and any of the dre tracks would have been better.

Busta Rhymes Drafts Linkin Park For New Single
Busta Rhymes
April 15, 2008, 10:25 AM ET
Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Busta Rhymes has drafted rock act Linkin Park to guest on his new single, "We Made It," a Chris Robinson-directed video for which is being shot today (April 15) in Los Angeles.

The track, which was produced by Cool & Dre and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, will introduce Rhymes' eighth studio album, "Blessed," due June 17 via Flipmode/Aftermath/Interscope.

"This is one of those songs that can't be described better than touching the souls of the common people," says Rhymes.

Shinoda and Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington will appear in the video. The group previously teamed with Jay-Z for the 2004 album "Collision Course," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.

i think the joint is nice, i just dont think its a banger for some reason, busta flow is sick and with nigga is hyped and it sounds sick to have busta flowing like this after a long time but i think its not first single material...the beat just doesnt make me think...'this will blow up' for somereason...

I look forward to this droppin though homie! Blessed sounds wack for an album name but i just wanna check it out!

pz!

^^ Exactly, Busta came correct but the production is so fucking boring, I'm not feeling Hittman's production style, all the beats they did on American Gangster sounds cheap and boring too.

BTW this info about the release date and the single is coming staright from Interscope records, so it looks like Busta might actually release the album on June 17th  8)
