Busta Rhymes – Gimme Some More (1998)
E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front
Trevor Tahiem Smith, Jr., (born May 20, 1972), better known by his stage name Busta Rhymes, is an American rapper, producer and actor.
E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front is the third studio album by American hip-hop artist Busta Rhymes, released on December 15, 1998 (see 1998 in music). It is the first album by Busta Rhymes to feature production by Swizz Beatz, as well as no contribution from longtime collaborator Jay Dee. Critically acclaimed, the album debuted at number twelve on the US Billboard 200, reaching number two on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and being the recipient of two Grammy nominations, one for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Solo Performance, respectively.
“Gimme Some More” is the first single by Busta Rhymes from his third solo album E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event): The Final World Front. The song is often considered to be the very summit of Busta’s complex, breathless, high-speed rhyming delivery most prominent in his early work. The track was produced by regular Busta collaborator DJ Scratch. The violin riffs that accompany the main beat are sampled from the opening theme to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, composed by Bernard Herrmann. In 2000, it was nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards, but lost to Eminem’s My Name Is.
