The rapper has been tapped as the latest addition to perform at the rock band's upcoming tour.
After tapping Linkin Park for a collaboration on his new single "We Made It", Its Busta Rhymes turns to help out the band. Busta has now been added as the latest musician to appear at the rock band's upcoming Projekt Revolution tour which will kick start on July 16 and end on August 24.
Confirming that news, the rapper told Billboard.com, "It made perfect sense for us to be on the tour together, so we could perform ['We Made It'] and bring it to life for people every night." On the upcoming tour Busta will also be joining other musicians that previously have been confirmed to perform at the event, such as Linkin Park themselves, Chris Cornell, The Bravery, Ashes Divide and many more.
Besides performing 'We Made It', the rapper will also play some songs from his upcoming album "Blessed". Revealing about how he would be performing his set, Busta stated, "I'm really one that loves the traditional sense of hip-hop. I like microphones and turntables."
The rapper's new record itself, which is his eight studio album, will be released on July 1 via Flipmode/Aftermath/Interscope. Not only teaming up with the rockers, on the LP Busta also tapped other famous names such as, T-Pain, Ludacris, Akon, Lil Wayne, Mary J. Blige, John Legend, Jamie Foxx and many others.
Adding some details about his new album, Busta said that the lyrics from the upcoming LP come from his own experience. "I'm also giving people my perspective on what my experience was, because I never really made time to communicate with the people about my perspective, especially when a lot of the heat was going on with my situation. I'm able to properly control the way everything is addressed on my album," said Busta. Meanwhile, after performing at the Projekt Revolution, the rapper also plans to head for Europe to hold another tour. "We're starting in Europe and then bringing it back to the U.S. We're still coordinating the lineup right now," he said.
In other news, aside from his upcoming music project, the rapper will also set himself to appear at a new movie, which will be titled "Order of Redemption". On the new film he will be acting alongside Armand Assante and Tom Berenger.
