**HIPHOP NEWS** S/O to BustaRhymes for giving away a free album!!! #Salute @BusaBusss
Yesterday on BET's "106 & Park, Busta Rhymes revealed that his next album Year of the Dragon will be FREE!!! He will release the album for free via Google Play. I knew this Android phone would start paying dividends LOL! Should I thank Cash Money for this too? Not so fast! Bus-A-Buss said that the LP will not be his YMCMB, Cash Money debut.
"The Year of the Dragon album, just so everybody know, is not my Cash Money debut, my YMCMB debut. This is my Google album and this is going to be given to everybody for free," he said. "And the reason why we decided to give it to everybody for free is because number one, Google Play is where the album is going to be available. So when it drops, we drop it in the second week of August, you’re going to get a date in the next couple of days, it’s important that you go there to get it because that’s the only place where it’s going to be for free."
He also revealed the guest features for the project. The Brooklyn, New York veteran said that the LP will tout appearances from Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Trey Songz, Robin Thicke, Gucci Mane, Reek Da Villain, J-Doe, Anthony Hamiton and Maino.
"We got the incredible Tunechi the boss on the joint, we got Rick Ross, we got Trey Songz, we got Robin Thicke on there, we got my fellow Brooklynite Maino and Anthony Hamilton on a record together, we got Gucci Mane on the project, we got Reek Da Villain and J-Doe."
While the album will drop in August, he reminded us to be on the lookout for his Cash Money debuting November. I guess Hip Hop heads will call Year of the Dragon a mixtape before the album. But still, S/O to Busta for taking the time to make his art, even its free, an event. While at 106 & Park, Busta dropped the video for the album's first single, King Tut.
