News about Busta Rhymes working on a collaboration with Eminem was first heard late last year. Months later on Thursday, June 26, the duo announced that their joint project that’s set to be called “Calm Down” would finally arrive on Tuesday, July 1.
“It’s Official!!! Busta Rhymes Ft. Eminem ‘Calm Down’ Is Coming….. July 1st!!!! #THECONGLOMERATEB**CH! #CALMDOWN,” Busta announced on Twitter, captioning a photo of him posing in a studio with Em. He has also shared the official cover art for the single.
“Calm Down” was produced by Scoop DeVille. Busta revealed what to expect from the track in an interview with XXL last September. “I’ve got a six-minute record with Eminem that sounds like we are respectfully trying to battle each other in a way that you probably never heard us battle in our entire careers on a record,” he said. “So it’s lot of real incredibly golden moments for us on this project.”
This won’t be Busta and Eminem’s first time to do a collaboration. They previously joined forces for 2006′s “I’ll Hurt You”.
Busta is currently readying his 10th studio album, “E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event) 2″. The album will serve as the sequel to his 1998 record “E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front”
