Busta Rhymes, who's signed to Dr. Dre's Aftermath imprint, is busy in the studio working on his upcoming album, The Big Bang, which drops July 19.
According to his management, Busta's been recording in Los Angeles with producers Timbaland, Cool & Dre, Scott Storch and label head Dr. Dre. And although there's no confirmed first single just yet, the leaked "Hurt Sumthin" may end up being the first release.
Meanwhile, the gruff-voiced rapper recently teamed up with soul legend Stevie Wonder and director Paul Hunter on the video for Wonder's current single, "So What the Fuss," from his forthcoming album, A Time to Love. Busta recorded an audio track for the clip that serves as narration for the blind (see "Busta Rhymes Narrates Stevie Wonder Video For Blind Fans").
Busta is also gearing up for some summer dates on 50 Cent and Eminem's Anger Management Tour, although the specific dates have yet to be announced.
