Bus' The Facts

Busta Rhymes - As I Come Back
(From Genesis album; 2001)

Always my favourite Busta Rhymes track with The Neptunes track because that beat was so very obviously a bespoke creation for Busta. In hindsight, As I Come Back was as close as New York got to its own equivalent of Crunk and its a pity nobody else took the baton and ran with it. I wanna say that bassline is pure U.K darkside Rave but that'd make me sound like Grimey Simey and noone should ever wanna sound like Grimey Simey when talking about Rap.

In your opinion, what would South or West Coast equivalents be to LOTUG or LONS?

Hmmm. Maybe Pharcyde and Souls Of Mischief for the West, and Odd Squad and Y'All So Stupid for the South.

Bring back Spliff Star.

Call The Ambulance remix >>>

Doesn't sound particularly Neptunes-ish but is a legit banger that never fully took off for some reason

Yeah, great song.
