Joyner Lucas Drops “Not Now I’m Busy” Album 

Today, Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Joyner Lucas released his highly-anticipated sophomore studio album titled Not Now I’m Busy that includes star-studded collaborations with the likes of Jelly Roll, DMX, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Twista, Logic, Symba, Conway the Machine and Nefertitti Avani and is currently available on all streaming platforms via The Orchard — LISTEN HERE.

Not Now I'm Busy

The 17-song album takes listeners on a musical journey that showcases Joyner’s powerful storytelling ability over mesmerizing beats. With “Three Little Pigs,” Joyner creatively uses his lyrics as a metaphor to describe the longstanding history of police violence against Black people across America. 

It also includes the newly-released collaboration with Jelly Roll on “Best For Me,” which shines a powerful message on the importance of supporting loved ones battling substance abuse and addiction and lends a voice to those suffering in silence. The song reached No. 2 on iTunes Top Hip-Hop/Rap Songs chart and is currently No. 3 on YouTube’s Trending for music — WATCH HERE.

Not Now I’m Busy also includes Joyner’s previous releases from the past year, including “Sticks & Stones (feat. Conway the Machine),” “Seventeen,” “Broski,” “24 Hours to live,” “What’s That” and “Cut U Off (feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again).” The new album showcases Joyner’s evolution as an individual and independent artist since dropping his last album, ADHD, in March 2020. The project debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, earned RIAA Gold certification, and solidified his position as one of the industry’s most formidable rap talents.

Joyner’s new single comes on the heels of his “Not Now I’m Busy” headlining tour announcement – a 24-city trek that will kick off on May 11th in Minneapolis at Uptown Theater and will include special appearances from rappers Millyz and Dax. Tickets are now available for purchase HERE.
