R&B singer Robin Thicke has announced that he will be collaborating with Busta Rhymes for the rapper's upcoming Chemo album.
According to Thicke, he has secured at least one guest feature for the forthcoming release.
"I did a record with Busta for his new album," Thicke said in an interview. "We went in the studio and Busta and I worked together. Busta is very top secret--NASA, CIA, don't tell nobody nothing, don't play nobody nothing, so I probably shouldn't have even said that. He's probably sending somebody here right now to beat me up." (Rap-Up)
Last month, Busta hinted at The Neptunes' Pharrell Williams being involved with the project.
"Just 4 the twuckin' record I got the most incredible beat frm Pharrel 2day...This CHEMO sh*t is becomining a real milestone album in hip hop!!!!," Busta wrote Wednesday (February 17) morning. "2 all prod. Sendin' beats 2 me u have 3 days left...I'm not happy about the shit yall been sendin'..We give a chance a and ur not goin' in'!!! WORK!!!!" (Busta Rhymes' Twitter)
He recently explained his motivation for naming the album Chemo.
"I called the album The Chemo because it seems like the industry and music overall is dying slowly," Busta explained in an interview. "The cancer that's stricken the business is killing the music, not only from a business standpoint, but also the value of the content and the creativity behind it. I just want to start the first stage of chemotherapy treatment that needs to take place and hopefully inspire others to do their part and contribute to different stages of the cure." (Billboard)
The new solo effort is expected to drop around mid-summer.
"First and foremost, the new album is coming the fourth of July," Busta said in an interview. "The Chemo. I definitely felt it was necessary to find an antidote to cure the cancer in this industry. And last but not least, we gonna nose dive headfirst without a parachute to the big screen, get these movies popping again and have fun." (CBS)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
