Busta Rhymes — who has had his share of problems in the last few months following a shooting at his Brooklyn video shoot — has one more issue to deal with: His album release date has been pushed back.
The Big Bang, initially expected in stores this week, will now hit shelves on May 16, according to Billboard.com. Led by the single “Touch It,” the album features collaborations with artists including will.i.am, Kelis, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott, DMX, Stevie Wonder, Ludacris, and Lloyd Banks. Dr. Dre, Swizz Beats and will.i.am produced Busta’s follow-up to his 2002 album, It Ain’t Safe No More.
