Back on My B.S.

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Busta Rhymes; Status: In Season

Busta Rhymes’ eighth studio album, Back on My B.S., defines the term ”mixed bag.” For every track that finds him returning with full force to the tongue-twisting ways of his youth (”Don’t Believe ‘Em”) or addressing tabloid gossip with refreshing honesty (”If You Don’t Know”), there’s a blatant trend grab like the Auto-Tune-abusing ”Hustler’s Anthem ‘09.” Worst of all is ”Arab Money,” a song that combines ignorant ethnic stereotyping with an unpleasantly shrill hook. All things considered, Busta should probably try including a little less B.S. the next time he comes back. C+
