Busta Rhymes Joins Diddy’s Supreme Team
Diddy‘s no stranger to wrangling rappers into makeshift crews, and his most recent squad, Supreme Team, just got its newest member. Joining Rick Ross, Fabolous, Red Café, DJ Khaled and Puffy is none other than Busta Rhymes, who appeared alongside the Bawse, Loso and Khaled during Hot 97’s Summer Jam last night at New Jersey’s Meadowlands stadium.
Though there doesn’t appear to be any group album in the works, the movement sees the emcees associating one another on both a personal and business level, with rumors that Diddy has just taken over as Rawse’s manager and emcees of the collective recently collaborating on tracks with one another. Additionally, most members have projects in the works, with Diddy’s ‘Last Train to Paris’ headed to retail on June 29 and Ross’ ‘Teflon Don’ hitting stores July 20.
Busta, who recently released his Swizz Beatz-assisted track, ‘Stop the Party,’ as part of the ‘Iron Man 2′ soundtrack, is currently working on the sequel to his 1998 classic ‘E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front.’ The album, formerly titled ‘The Chemo,’ is rumored to feature production from J. Dilla, Cool & Dre, Boi1da, Salaam Remi, DJ Scratch, The Runners, Focus, Rockwilder, Nottz, Dr. Dre and more. The quick-tongued emcee has also collaborated with Wyclef Jean, Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Diddy and his Dirty Money crew, who also guest stars on ‘Last Train to Paris.’ ‘E.L.E. 2′ is slated to drop on July 6.
