86 - Busta Rhymes - The Coming (1996)
° ° ° °
The Coming is the debut studio album by American rapper Busta Rhymes, the former member of Leader of the New School.
The album features Def Squad members Redman and Keith Murray, Q-Tip, Zhané and several Flipmode Squad members. Production was handled by DJ Scratch, Easy Mo Bee and The Ummah, among others. The production is very dope.
It serves as Rhymes' first solo album after the break up of former group Leaders of the New School three years prior and Rhymes' first full-length project after numerous guest appearances on other songs with artists such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Notorious B.I.G., Heavy D and the Boyz and Mary J. Blige.
Busta Rhymes rapped as a unique genius. Only Ol' Dirty Bastard has maybe the same style. This is hard when you first heard it but this album is unique. Busta Rhymes really show us potential.
Great album, a classic.
