Album Review: "Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God" by Busta Rhymes (9/10)

Label: Conglomerate/Empire

Producer: Various

ELE 2 is Busta Rhymes’ 10th studio album to date and is by far his most puzzling one yet. With over 30 years in the rap game, Busta retains lyrical versatility, blending old school and new school hip-hop with pop, making ELE2 as colorful as it is. Twenty-six hard-hitting tracks, and ELE2 is the most relevant hip-hop album of 2020. This album features appearances from Chris Rock, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar, among a handful of other notable artists/celebrities. – Adam Seyum
