Back on My B.S. (2009)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: May 19, 2009; Lead Performance: Busta Rhymes; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

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+
