Genesis is the fifth studio album by Busta Rhymes. The album was released on November 27, 2001, by Flipmode Records and J Records.[13] The fourth single from the album, "Pass the Courvoisier Part II", peaked at number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100. It was included at the end of the album on some later pressings (on which "Ass On Your Shoulders" was removed due to playing time restrictions). The album debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 185,000 copies.[14] It later sold 1 million domestic copies and certified Platinum by RIAA.
