Busta Rhymes Explains Why He Parted Ways With Cash Money Records


Earlier today, the hiphop community was shocked with news that New York rap legend Busta Rhymes had parted ways with Cash Money. The shock could be compared to the same when he announced joining the group some few years ago.

Although many did not believe he had left Cash Money Records, the legendary artist spoke to the issue and confirmed it on Sway In The Morning. He explained Creative differences were the main reason his upcoming E.L.E. 2 (Extinction Level Event 2) will not be released on Baby and Slim’s imprint.

He stated the decision to part ways was mutual and would in the near future do business with Cash Money Records.

For me, with this particular project and all of the sacrifice that went into it – recording the album for five years. I ain’t put out an album since ’09, so I’ve been working on this album for a long time. I lose Chris Lighty making this album. I lose my father making this album. The s**t I was putting into this album, I’m not compromising my vision for it.

So if I feel like, in the slightest way, we ain’t facilitating everything necessary for the vision to be seen through and executed in the way that I’ve been envisioning this s**t for the last five years, let me live and die in my own inequity. That’s really all it came down to.
