Busta Rhymes Blames Dr. Dre For The 9-Year Album Delay
Give me a little more.
New York, NY – the Fans have been waiting patiently for a Busta Rhymes solo album to surface for years. During a conversation with Zane Lowe and Ebro Darden on Beats 1 NYC Studio opening last week, Bus-to-Bus finally explains what the capacity is — and Dr Dre is partly to blame.

"Dre be like, 'Yo, that was a great one, but you want to do it a different way. Want to see the new results, you have to do it in a new way. Welcome to Root of my nigga.' I'm like, 'What the fuck does this mean?'"

"It's definitely coming this year," he said last month. "9th Wonder has heard the album in its entirety several times. Just Blaze, Rapsody, and all of them have been very vocal about it via social media platforms, and I am super grateful to them for cosigning, their endorsements, all the expectation that has been
