Get ready for a lyrical showdown between Busta Rhymes and Eminem. The rapper recently told XXL that a new song on his upcoming album, Extinction Level Event 2, has the two rappers in a friendly battle.
“I’ve got a six-minute record with Eminem that sounds like we are respectfully trying to battle each other in a way that you probably never heard us battle in our entire careers on a record.” Busta revealed. “So it’s lot of real incredibly golden moments for us on this project.”
This isn’t the only all-star track fans can expect from the album , which Busta says is dropping in late November. E.L.E. 2 will also feature a song called “Thank You” produced by Busta himself with verses from Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Q-Tip.
“That’s definitely going to be one of the more immediate, eventful moments that you are gonna be able to experience from this phenomenal body of work,” Busta teased.
Last month, Busta spoke with MTV News at the 2013 MTV VMAs about how the track “Thank You” is helping unite West’s G.O.O.D Music with Weezy’s YMCMB.
“I just wanted to put it to bed and create an eventful moment where me and Wayne being Young Money/Cash Money on one team, Q-Tip and Kanye be on another movement on G.O.O.D. Music; just showing that camaraderie and that alliance and just making it official on a real hip-hop level,” he explained.
