Image: 1591947 Busta Rhymes delivered his debut album, The Coming, three years
after the Leaders of the New School unofficially disbanded. Though
his talents were evident on those Leaders of the New School releases,
Busta went on a series of features that only built up the public’s
desire for a solo Busta album. Right out the gate Busta dropped his
classic debut single “Woo Hah!!” that made it abundantly clear he
was to be mentioned among Hip Hop’s greatest solo artists. The
energy and originality packed on that one song set a tone for the
album that displays Busta’s raw talent and ability to bend words with
his ever rambunctious flow. Songs such as “Everything Remains
Raw”, “Abandon Ship”, and “Still Shining” all rise above as The
Coming’s stand out tracks but it’s really “ill Vibe” that is the albums
crown jewel moment. Busta sounds right at home over this J Dilla
beat trading verses with his Native Tongue cohort Q-Tip.
The Coming was a critical and commercial success for Busta
Rhymes. It reached #6 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1996 and has
since received a platinum certification from RIAA. As mentioned The
Coming boasts the hit single "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check" which
reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1996. It was nominated
for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance. It also
ended up sporting another hit single, "It's a Party" featuring Zhané.
The Coming shows amazing variety where Busta is able to break free
from the bells and the whistles of the Busta “Dungeon Dragon” flow
to explore other ways of leaving our jaws open by his incredible
lyricism. The Coming surely lives up to its title, as Busta delivers a
performance that ignited his impeccable solo career.
