Busta Rhymes is back in the studio working on new music with some of his longtime friends and collaborators. 

According to Instagram, the legendary emcee recently linked up with R&B singer Chris Brown, who recruited Busta for his 2011 song, “Look at Me Now.”

“The Dragon x @chrisbrownofficial. It’s been a long time. Just know,” Busta wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the two posing next to a Lamborghini. It’s unclear whether or not the two connected on a new track, but their relationship seems to be in good standing. 

In another post, Busta posed with his “Pass the Courvoisier Part II” collaborator Sean “Diddy” Combs and Louisville singer Bryson Tiller. “As we celebrate Life, we hear yall talkin’… Stay tuned,” Busta wrote in the caption. 

Yet Busta seems more excited about a forthcoming track with Verzuz co-founder and producer Swizz Beatz. The two have collaborated on numerous songs over the years, including 2006’s “New York S***.

“Brand New Dragon x @therealswizzz. Y’all in f****** trouble! Stay tuned!” Busta wrote on Instagram, sharing a video of himself and his friends in the studio.

“The world has never heard it until now,” said Swizz, before playing a snippet of their new record. “Wait until they hear them other joints,” he added in the comments. 

Busta’s ninth album, Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God, was released last October. It peaked at #7 on the all-genre Billboard 200 Albums chart — five spots higher than his third album, Extinction Level Event: The Final World Font.
