It’s Official: 2 DJ Premier Tracks on Busta Rhyme’s Upcoming Album

Busta Rhymes just destroyed the 1st out of 2 joints I’m doin’ on his new Album !!!…..less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

It looks like the legendary Busta Rhymes found not 1, but 2 fine Premo beats after many rejections. No word on any possible release date, but probably at the end of 2011 (if Eminem or Kanye West don’t release an album). Busta Rhymes is also featured on NYGz upcoming album coming before summer (maybe).
