Busta Rhymes Taps Q-Tip, Kanye West and Lil Wayne for ‘Thank You’

Busta Rhymes has released another single from his upcoming ‘E.L.E. 2 (Extinction Level Event 2)’ and it’s a good one. ‘Thank You’ features fellow old-timer Q-Tip, fellow Cash Money member Lil Wayne and Kanye West, and it’s a long way from sounding like ‘#TwerkIt.’

One thing that is immediately noticed is, although the song features Wayne and Kanye, neither actually spits a verse. The G.O.O.D. Music leader inserts his ad-libs while Weezy starts the track off with a goofy “Welcome to the bank / Where you deposit Young Money, and you get Cash Money.”

The production calls back to the Leaders of the New School and A Tribe Called Quest days. The guitar chugs of a soul, funk sample play as Busta and Q-Tip spit in double time and beyond.

Bussa Bus expands on how he’s better lyrically, financially and physically (“See how we push sometimes man forget cuff, beat him the head / Boop-be-de-de-boff, zippity-boof”) while Q-Tip shines without struggling to keep up with Busta’s pace. ‘Thank You’ consequently also doubles as an advertisement for Q-Tip’s upcoming album, ‘The Last Zulu.’

Q-Tip’s ‘The Last Zulu’ and Busta Rhymes’ ‘E.L.E 2′ are slated for a 2014 release.
