Busta Rhymes is one of hip-hop’s greatest MCs. His signature growl, rapid-fire flow, and imaginative lyrics helped make his solo debut, The Coming, a critical and commercial success in 1996. That year, the album topped the R&B chart and peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200 on its way to being certified platinum. The record also featured “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check,” a Top 10 smash that earned Busta the first of his 11 Grammy® nominations.
Rhino will celebrate this hip-hop classic with THE COMING: 25th ANNIVERSARY SUPER DELUXE EDITION. This new digital collection will be available digitally on April 16 and is available for pre-save now. Its 36 tracks include a newly remastered version of the original album, plus unreleased instrumental tracks and 12” remixes previously unavailable digitally. Digital breakouts of the SUPER DELUXE will also be available for download.
A rare version of “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check” (The Jay-Dee Bounce Remix) by the late, legendary producer J Dilla will be available as a digital single. Click here to listen now.
THE COMING: 25th ANNIVERSARY SUPER DELUXE EDITION opens with remastered versions of the original 13 tracks, including the hits, “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check” and “It’s A Party.” The album boasts appearances by Def Squad members Redman and Keith Murray; Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest; Zhané; Leaders of the New School; and several Flipmode Squad members. Production was handled by DJ Scratch, Easy Mo Bee, and The Ummah, among others.
THE SUPER DELUXE EDITION presents previously unreleased instrumentals for the album’s 12 main tracks. It also has 12” remixes that were previously unavailable digitally, including “Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check” (World Wide Remix) featuring Ol’ Dirty Bastard, “Abandon Ship” (DJ Scratch Remix), and “It’s A Party” (The Ummah Remix) that features SWV (Sisters With Voices).
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Busta’s solo debut, but it’s also the 30-year anniversary of his very first album, Future Without A Past (1991). It was the first of two albums that he recorded with the hip-hop group Leaders of the New School. Just last year, Busta released his 10th solo album, Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath Of God. A new video for the song “Where I Belong” featuring Mariah Carey was recently released and can be found by going here.
