We’ve got to say, we’re happy that it’s Busta Rhymes releasing an album and not Chris Rock after watching the comedian’s hilarious announcement video.

Chris Rock does have a history in the music business. He’s released several comedy albums and even highlighted Kanye West’s “Blame Game” with a skit. Now, he’s sharpening his vocals to officially announce the new album from Busta Rhymes, which has been rumored for a few years at this point.

The legendary rapper will be making his return soon, revealing (via Chris Rock) that his new album is on the way.

“You n***as can’t fuck with the god Busta Rhymes,” repeatedly sings Chris Rock. “It’s official @bustarhymes new album is titled #ELE2. Coming soon…”

ELE2 is a name that Busta Rhymes has had in mind for a while. The acronym, Extinction Level Event, has followed him around for the last few years of his career.

This is a long time coming for the legend, who was working with Dr. Dre early last year to put the “finishing touches” on the album. A year and a half later, it looks like we’re finally getting it.

We’ll keep you posted as more information is released regarding Extinction Level Event 2, Busta’s new album.
