Product Description

Product Description

Busta Rhymes ~ Genesis

Amazon.co.uk

Arguably the most idiosyncratic MC in contemporary rap, Busta Rhymes flaunts his musical genius on his J Records debut. "Break Ya Neck," an uptempo headbanger produced by the good a Dr. Dre, features Busta flipping his trademark rapid-fire delivery over some post-modernist beats. The Neptunes (aka N*E*R*D) lace Busta with some spacey heat-seeking rhythm tracks on "What it Is" featuring Kelis, while on "As I Come Back" Busta unleashes some potent dungeon dragon roars and Jamaican patois-inflected rhymes. Pedigreed knob twiddlers Pete Rock and Diamond D drop by to provide the dreadlocked wonder with some crisp beats and the first lady of the Flipmode Squad Rah Digga rips up some rhymes on "Betta Stay Up in Your House." Busta's clearly ditched the apocalyptic post-millennial musings heard on his last three studio albums for a more party-themed record. Sure, he dabbles in a little bit of dorkery by enlisting the talents of P. Diddy on "Pass the Courvoisier," but all in all his eclectic rhymes and the plethora of wildly unpredictable beats makes Genesis a keeper. --Dalton Higgins

Each album this man creates is better than the last and this is no exception. By working with Dr Dre here, Genesis is different to all his other albums, and is a welcome breath of fresh air for hardened hip hop fans. Genesis grows on you overnight, with no single best track, but tracks 3,6,7,8,10,12 and 15 standing out to me. This is surely the best hip hop album for a long time. woo hah!

I loved, loved this cd in my teenage years I always have said this was one of busta rhymes best albums. I was thrilled to have this back again but also dissapointed as the cd was scratched a little and jumped on certain track. Cause the the cd cost next to nothing there was no point in returning it back. I knocked a star off because of the scratches but other than that a great album.

In one word, fantastic! Any fan of Busta Rhymes or just plain hip-hop will love this album. Genesis is definitely Busta's best work to date. The album consists of some melow tracks, but the ones for me were the fast-tongued styles of Break Ya Neck. One good thing about this album is that it takes all the best things from his previous albums, and piles them into one great piece of music. Some of his tracks feature young artist newcomers, but also some well known rappers and singers, as well as collaborations with his crew, the Flipmode Squad. For anybody that's a fan of original rap at its best, this is a must-get.

This album is great if you want to cultivate a bad mood! The range of producers brought in to work with Busta on this album make it a hodge-podge of beats and styles... in a good way. The Neptunes provide the fantastically angry 'As I Come Back' but also the catchy 'What It Is' (Featuring Kelis). Pete Rock provides his trademark jazzy style to 'Shut Em Down 2002', while J Dilla serves us up with the minamalism of Genesis. Other tracks are made by the much hyped Dr Dre. Featured artist are plenty too, with the likes of P.Diddy, Kelis, Jaheim, Mary J.Blige and Flipmode squad laying down vocals alongside Mr Rhymes.
If you want to hear Busta's trademark vocals alongside some gems from some of hip hop's finest producers, then this is an album for you, the tracks range from jazzy, to soulful, to cheeky, to downright mental. On the whole though, this is an album for those times when you just want to break things.

Not one track on this album failed to please. Every tune was a work of magic. I am one fan happy to see the back of all the apocalyptic stuff and the focus on what he does best i.e. mouth and eye-wateringly good music whatever the beat. Good to see tracks contributed to various compilation CDs all on 'Genesis' as well(e.g.'What It Is' from Violator 2 etc.)Much more of dis please Mr Rhymes!
