Busta Rhymes announces 25th anniversary edition of debut album

The reissued album boasts 36 tracks and previously unreleased instrumentals

Busta Rhymes has announced a 25th anniversary edition of his debut album.

New York-born rapper Busta Rhymes is reissuing his 1996 platinum-selling album, 'The Coming', as a digital-only release next month.

The album, which lands on the 16th April, features 36 tracks in total - including the 12 songs on the original tracklist, alongside newly remastered versions and instrumentals of each.

There's also eight versions of 'Woo Hah!! Got You All In Check', the album's debut single that peaked at number 8 on the UK and U.S. charts. The single also received a nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance at the 39th Grammy Awards, and was nominated for Best Breakthrough Video at 1996 Video Music Awards.

Busta Rhymes recently expressed interest in a battle on Timbaland and Swizz Beatz VERZUZ webcast, the most recent of which saw Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah and Raekwon face-off in a rap battle.
