In 2001, Busta Rhymes relaunched his career, in a major way. After a strong run with Elektra Records, Busta Rhymes signed with J Records, the label Clive Davis created. Here, Busta Rhymes dropped Genesis, home to “Break Ya Neck” and “Pass The Courvoisier.”
The following year, 2002, Busta Rhymes released It Ain’t Safe No More…, boasting “I Know What You Want,” featuring Mariah Carey. In the end, Busta Rhymes’ run at J was the best of his career. Since, he hasn’t been able to reach the same levels of commercial success.
Busta Rhymes has since had stints at Aftermath and Cash Money, where he only cracked the top twenty once. As much as things change, they remain the same, as Busta Rhymes has returned to Sony. In 2011, Sony decided to dissolve J Records, along with others, reinvesting in Epic Records, where Busta is hinting that he and The Conglomerate have entered a joint venture.
