When Disaster Strikes

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Busta Rhymes; Producer (group): Elektra

Hip-hop’s most manic, bugged-out rapper is back with his sophomore solo release, When Disaster Strikes. And while it’s not a disaster, there’s not a cut here to rival his offbeat breakthrough hit ”Woo-Hah!
