audio review : Calm Down ( song ) … Busta Rhymes ( featuring Eminem )

This song begins exactly like Jump Around by House Of Pain because the first six seconds is that song’s first six seconds. The sample continues in a stuttered loop, over boomy drums, but the decision to use it at all was a banal move on the part of producer Scoop DeVille. There wasn’t anything special about it in the first place.

For what it’s worth, Eminem helps connect the concept a bit by mentioning the House Of Pain song in his extra-long verse, which is about as verbose but more entertaining than Busta’s rhymes. It’s far (far) from his best, but the Abraham Lincoln, Wake-Up Show and Stan bits rival highlights from the (first/good) Marshall Mathers LP.

my rating : 3 of 5
