Anarchy is the fourth studio album by Busta Rhymes.[11] The album was released on June 20, 2000, by Flipmode Records and Elektra Records. It comes after the release of The Coming, When Disaster Strikes and Extinction Level Event (Final World Front). Unlike these albums, Anarchy does not follow the apocalypse theme. The album debuted at number 4 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 164,000 copies.[12] The album would later be certified Platinum by the RIAA. This was Busta's final album with Elektra Records.
