If you follow Just Blaze on Twitter, you felt his frustration late last week, when he thumbed the message above, indicating an unsanctioned leak of an incomplete song he produced for Twista and Busta Rhymes was about to cause a sh!t-storm of legal ramifications. The drip, which is called “Can You Keep Up” and could possibly even feature YelaWolf on the final version, will probably end up making a few lawyers some cake, as well as cost the song an actual spot on any album. All of which is such a bad look for everyone involved. As far as the artists go, not only do they now have to deal with judicial mumbo jumbo, but one of their potential gems falls through the cracks, as a result of someone else. For the fans, you’re pissed one of your own not only cost your ears the opportunity to hear some heat, but made the rest of us look petty along the way.
Still, not every fan needs to claim the newest of new, just to say they can pull some strings. Some of us actually respect the artists’ grind and would happily wait to hear our favorite MCs collaborate. Or, even better, dig up a few old collaborations between said artists, who in this case would be Mista Tung Twista and Bussa Buss.
So, instead of burning down the momentum of people we look up to, let’s celebrate the past history of these two rapid-fire rhymers, while we patiently wait for them to pen the next chapter.
1. Busta Rhymes Feat. Twista – “Break Ya Neck” (Remix)
Is there really a better way to start off the show, then by bringing up this Dr. Dre-produced vertebrae-breaker, from Busta’s Genesis album? While your head is surely nodding, I’m assuming you agree.
