Rap veteran Busta Rhymes has updated rap fans on the status of his forthcoming untitled new album and said a name for the solo project would be revealed soon.
Writing via his Twitter page, the New York rapper said his LP was near completion.
"Errrrrbody album is at the 90% mark...I'm not officially announcoing the title of the album yet but stay tuned tweop's...," he tweeted Thursday (August 12) night.
"I'm workin' 2 hard 2 f*ck wit the Ustream right now...I'm a get wit yall 2mrw...Yall be easy and stay tuned...#STUDIO GRIND ON FULL TILT!!" (Busta Rhymes' Twitter)
Initial album title speculation was generated from the rapper's manager, Chris Lighty, on his popular Twitter page last May.
The trend of album sequels continues with Busta Rhymes as the New York staple plans another chapter from from his 1998 opus E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front. Busta's manger Chris Lighty sent out the message via Twitter. Lighty simply said, "Extinction.Level.Event 2 ......prepare yourself." Like the first, E.L.E. 2 is inspired by movies of pending destruction and doom on planet Earth, Lighty said. "From the Intro of the new Busta Album your going to know your [sic] in trouble and you just turned on 2012 the movie on warp speed," he said. (All Hip Hop)
Busta also re-tweeted Lighty's Twitter messages on his own page.

Last April, producer Swizz Beatz said that Busta renamed his solo project.
"I think Busta changed the title from The Chemo but I swear to you, this album is crazy," Beatz promised in an interview. "It's not, no, no, no, it's crazy. I was impressed, I'm not even gonna lie. I went into the studio expecting to hear something else and I heard something else, back to back." (Rap-Up TV)
