While his output has been less than consistent, Busta Rhymes has always been one of the most distinctive and entertaining rappers in hip-hop. THE BIG BANG (2006) found Busta evolving as a stylist and a rhymesayer, slowing down his patented breakneck flow a bit while losing none of his agility, complexity, or precision. He also expanded the range of his narratives to include more introspective writing, though he still rocks a party on club tracks like "Touch It."
But the most notable thing here is the production. With the legendary Dr. Dre at the boards, THE BIG BANG boasts some of Busta's sharpest tracks, packing an overall sonic wallop that will leave listeners reeling. Also impressive is the guest list, which includes not only top-tier rap royalty (Nas, Raekwon, Q-Tip, Missy Elliott), but R&B icons Rick James and Stevie Wonder to boot. If it isn't the masterpiece fans were waiting for, THE BIG BANG still has plenty of dynamite production and rhyming to offer.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Rhymes hasn't sounded this energised in years....THE BIG BANG is impressively vital."
XXL (Magazine) (p.149) - "Reining in the vocal pyrotechnics, Busta unveils his newfound storytelling ability....Busta makes the most of his strengths and weaknesses head-on. That's the only way to make sure everything remains raw."
XXL (Magazine) (p.135) - "Bearing Andre Young's mighty executive-producer stamp, Busta's latest is one of his strongest."
