Busta Rhymes, Year of the Dragon — August (Date TBA)
It’s been three years since Busta’s last album. His fans are anxious, and his album artwork Year of the Dragon is fuel to the fire.
The free album (to be released via Google Play) is represented by a large dragon towering over helmeted soldiers, spewing flames from its open mouth. The eerie cover looks like a Disney tale on bath salts. The illustration can easily be taken as a promise from the Brooklyn MC’s that he’ll stay true his nickname as the “Dungeon Dragon” and be spitting that fire. His album release also correlates with the time period, as this is the year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese zodiac. It’s his first release since joining the YMCMB family, and, via his Twitter, he prepares us for the coming with this:
“@BusaBusss #YEAROFTHEDRAGON #StayTuned… Evil Grin… Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!”
