  • Summary: Busta's fourth solo album includes 20 new tracks produced by the likes of Dr. Dre, the Neptunes, and Pete Rock. Guest vocalists include P. Diddy, Mary J. Blige, and the Flipmode Squad.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. Goes on a bit, predictably (20 tracks!), but only Jay-Z can match its highlights for party soundtrack of the year.
  2. This time around the beats seem darker and more synth-oriented, giving it an edge reminiscent of the bass-heavy G-funk sound.

    Busta stampedes through a survey of current rap styles with boundless wit, energy and quality rhymes. [Mar 2002, p.96]
  4. Despite a few monotonous moments, Genesis is an exciting ode to hydro and ho's. [7 Dec 2001, p.104]
  5. Remains in the tradition of his previous releases, offering a combination of witty rhymes and unforgettable hooks.
  6. Patchy and sometimes plodding... but that gruff, urgent voice remains a potent instrument in the right setting. [Feb 2002, p.106]
  7. It's not exactly a convincing change of gears, nor is it particularly groundbreaking--unless you consider jamming as many four-letter words as possible into three minutes (on "As I Come Back") novel.
