The rap legend has been hyping the release of Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God for years as he's continuously promised that a new record was on the horizon.

The rapper said he was working "diligently" on creating a body of work that would speak to his soul. "I have been so fortunate to have done so many amazing projects… that were even deemed classics by the people and my colleagues and my peers," said Busta. "After doing it this long and having those moments, you feel like What have you not done that you need to do, to reignite the spark and make you feel the excitement you need to feel? Not in the way that you felt it before, but in a way that supersedes everything that you've felt."
