Last night the world watched as modern hip-hop royalty exchanged applause at the BET Awards. But today, as the dust from last night's shenanigans begins to settle, two icons of yesteryear will rightfully regain the attention of rap fans everywhere — Busta Rhymes and Eminem just unveiled their brawling new collaborative single "Calm Down" off Busta's forthcoming LP ELE 2
, due out later this year.
Producer Scoop DeVille pits the two rappers against one another in the forefront of a frantic sample of the archetypal horn hook of House of Pain's "Jump Around". It's a six-minute lyrical war well-worth its heroic cover art.
You can grab the single on iTunes
and stream it below.
