New York’s own and one of the greatest MC’s of all-time Busta Rhymes is just a day away from dropping his highly-anticipated sequel to 1998’s E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front. Before that, he’s giving fans a tease of Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God that links him up with another all-time great mc none other than Compton’s own Kendrick Lamar.
“Look Over Your Shoulder” is a lyric video that finds the two MC’s trading verses over a sample of Jackson 5’s “I’ll Be There.”
‘Cause I done bodied the game to the point ni**as scared to rap with me
Rap kept burnin’ ’til they anointed me one of the kings of black history
And yes, I see the game is a little different, ni**as lack simply
Them bars and I spit ’em like darts ’til they puncture your kidney
You trash and it don’t matter how much you gon’ try to convince me
And you gon’ make my gun cock and talk a whole ‘nother way, yo
Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God drops on Friday (Oct. 30), and features A-list collaborations with Mariah Carey, Q-Tip, Rick Ross, Chris Rock, Rakim, Anderson .Paak, Pete Rock, M.O.P., Bell Biv Devoe, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Rapsody, Mary J. Blige, and more.
