Busta Rhymes: Back On My BS (Universal/Motown)

This album is a hot steamin’ pile of BS. Busta has struggled in recent years to restore a lost sense of relevance and this uninspired album doesn’t help. ‘The World Round’ featuring Estelle is laughable, it’s a full blown dance record sampling Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams.’ Those expecting something new will be disappointed. This is a fat collection of meandering experimentation and revolving-door guest spots. With so many random ideas and faces coming along for the trip, BS sounds less like one artist’s voice and more like an overcrowded carnival ride. Cut the crap, Busta!
