Busta Rhymes is a hip-hop veteran, but after a four-year hiatus, he's not only resurrecting his own career, but New York hip-hop entirely. His move from J to Dr. Dre's Aftermath has yielded more creative freedom on an album that features contributions from Stevie Wonder, Nas, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, will.i.am and even the late Rick James. "Goldmine" finds Busta trading 'hood rhymes with Raekwon, while "You Can't Hold the Torch" with Q-Tip urges MCs to raise their game.
