Busta Rhymes‘ new song “Arab Money” continues to be a lightning rod for controversy, with one UK DJ being suspended after playing the Quran-sampling track on the radio. Steve “Smooth” Sutherland was suspended from his popular show after the song’s broadcast resulted complaints from listeners. In the song’s chorus, the first chapter of the Quran is sung and sampled, which is against strict Arab law dictating that singing a Quran verse in combination with music is prohibited. “I really only respect the Arab culture,” Rhymes said in a recent interview. “I ain’t really trying to pay no attention to, ya know, these little people in political positions and executive positions that ain’t Arab culture oriented people because a lot of the times, what are you really showing all of this concern for?” Busta will entangle Diddy, Lil Wayne, Akon and T-Pain in the controversy as well when the “Arab Money” remix drops soon.
Een woordvoerder van Galaxy FM;
“I can confirm that a track called Arab Money by Busta Rhymes was broadcast on Saturday 29th November at 9.58pm. A number of complaints have been received about the lyrics in the song and so both the DJ and his producer have been suspended pending further enquiries. Meanwhile Galaxy apologies for any offense caused.”
Busta Rhymes zei eerder;
Sometimes, people like to twist things. We ain’t mockin’ the culture. we ain’t tryin’ to be disrespectful. Ain’t no racism going on right here. If you listen to the song, you see that we are actually acknowledging the fact that the Arabian culture, a middle East culture is one of the few cultures that value passing down hard work riches that’s been built amongst the family. It would be nice if a lot of other cultures did the same thing. I would like for it to be like that in my culture where we could build things to the point where we got so much that we don’t need to rely on other cultures to contribute majorly in a financial way, or in whatever other way, to societies, communities or whatever governments we might live in. So, we are actually biggin’ up the culture. At the end of the day, I want to be like that. I think a lot of us want to be like that.

Diddy & Busta Rhymes vs. T-Pain & Akon
Er is dus gewoon budget vrijgekomen zodat Busta T-Pain en Akon kon krijgen voor de remix i.p.v. budget ass Ron Browz?

UPDATE: De remix is hier te downloaden. De NO DJ versie volgt snel.

Busta is dus weg bij Aftermath/Interscope en zit nu bij Universal Motown.
Hij is druk bezig om z’n album B.O.M.B. (Back On My Bullshit) af te ronden en dit schijnt de eerste single te zijn…
Persoonlijk vind ik het nummer best wel OK, maar een beetje een tegenvaller voor een Busta Rhymes single… I need animated Busta!!!
Busta Rhymes recently confirmed his exit from Aftermath/Interscope Records during an interview on New York’s Hot 97 this past weekend.
Reports of Busta leaving the label and signing with Universal/Motown Records surfaced last week.
The reports claimed that a rift between Busta and Interscope honcho Jimmy Iovine caused the rapper to exit the label. Busta had also been unhappy with the repeated delay of his album titled Blessed.
Busta revealed to Hot 97 that despite his departure from Aftermath, he is still in good standing with Dr. Dre. The rapper also revealed that his upcoming album will be titled B.O.M.B.
“The name of the album is called B.O.M.B. December 9th. Flipmode. Universal Motown. And B.O.M.B. is the acronym for Back On My Bullsh*t,” Busta said.
