Busta Rhymes to Release Free Album ‘Year of the Dragon’ in August

Busta Rhymes is giving the people what they want. During his appearance on “106 & Park,” the Cash Money rapper made a big announcement regarding his next studio album, Year of the Dragon. Instead of a conventional release, he plans to distribute it for free through Google’s online music store, Google Play.

“The Year of the Dragon album is not my Cash Money debut, this is my Google album and this album is going to be given to everybody for free,” said the rap veteran. “Google Play is where the album is going to be available.”

Due in mid-August, the follow-up to 2009’s Back on My B.S. will include collaborations with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Trey Songz, Robin Thicke, Maino, and Gucci Mane.
