Busta’s banger “Arab Money” has a remix that has just dropped, the original Ron Browz (?) production, featuring guest appearances from T-Pain, Akon, Swizz and Diddy, and includes new lyrics from Busta.
Interestingly enough both Swizz and T-Pain are Muslim, and a glaring change has been made to the annunciation of Arab in the song. Q-Tip (also a noted Muslim) was one of the first to show excitement about the new single at a concert at the Knitting Factory where he was doing the “Arab Monday dance” along with Spliff and Busta. There is alot of talk about the song being insulting in terms of making a farce of Middle-Eastern culture. (feedback in comments is encouraged)
The following video shows in-studio smack-talk between Busta and Diddy (at Bad Boy studios) and Akon and T-Pain at an undisclosed studio working on their lyrics for the remix.
Busta’s Back On My BS drops March 10, 2009 on his new deal with Universal Motown.
