While it seems like Busta Rhymes is jerking us all around, he will in fact be releasing his new studio album, Blessed, in the coming months. After several confirmations with his label reps at Interscope, DJBooth has been assured that the project is on schedule for a late summer release. Rhymes’ two current singles, Don’t Touch Me and We Made It (featuring Linkin Park), are both getting middle of the road spins at national radio, but as the man himself would tell you; its never good to rest on your laurels (especially with the current climate of the record industry). To feed the fans and add some hype to the new project, Tapemasters Inc. and Flipmode Ent. have come together to release a new mixtape, entitled Black Friday Pt. 2, which features the new joint, Breathin Like That. Unlike his most popular work to date, the song features Rhymes quietly and methodically rapping his verses, as opposed to his usual break-neck delivery.
Note: The streaming of “Breathin Like That” has temporarily been suspended.
