Default Canibus

I'm not a big fan of rap but one artist that does catch my attention is Canibus.
If you have heard Rip The Jacker then you know what I'm talking about.
Poet Laureate II is one of the most intelligent rap songs that haven ever graced my ears.

Give that album a listen if you already haven't and you may be pleasantly surprised.

He is a good writer.

I'll giv you that, he is a good writer, but like, when I said I like Bushwick Bill in another thread cuz he sounds pissed off, he's pissed about valid things, like war, or the gov. Canibus sounds pissed off, but more at himself, which he actually talks about in some of his songs

He's frustrated that he can't garner the kind of recognition that he (and tons of hip-hop fans) feels he deserves. And before you discount him for not being focused on real issues like war etc...just know that he fought in Iraq. Besides, Canibus isn't always angry, he just has an agressive delivery.

the funny thing is he could have been wildly successful if he wasn't so co*ky and went out of his way to say he was better than LL Cool J on the song LL was nice enough to let him rap on, and his remake of Eminem's Stan where he meets a suicidal fan and helps him, it's a nice sentiment, but does anyone actually buy that he would do that?

I've only heard "Mic Club: The Cirriculum" and "Rip The Jacker", but I thought both were great.

I can't believe we don't have a better Canibus thread. He may have fallen off (hopefully just taking sabbatical). His old stuff was a lyrical goldmine. He recently competed in King-Of-The-Dot's "Vendetta: Battle Royale." It was supposed to be a huge rap battle. I guess he couldn't memorize his lines, and instead forfeited and just read like 30 pages of rhymes that he had written in preparation for the event. He knows he's not a freestyler, and he had no business being in that competition. Either way, I've still got love for him and his rhymes.

Legendary underground emcee Canibus took part in one-on-one rap battle event in Los Angeles on Saturday (June 9), where he forfeited and had the Internet going nuts in the process after footage of the battle made its way online.

The NYC rapper signed on to battle local rap opponent Dizaster in King Of The Dot's one-on-one main event called "Vendetta: Battle Royale" over the weekend ... and things were bad for Canibus right from the start.

In the first two rounds of the battle, he struggled, forgetting his lyrics while Dizaster ripped him to shreds ... lyrically. By the third round, Bis just gave up. He forfeited to Dizaster, declaring him the winner, but chose to spit some bars anyway ... from a notebook.

Yep, you read right. Canibus pulled out a notebook, explaining that he had rehearsed for weeks, but just isn't good a freestyling. So, instead of letting everyone down, he wanted to spit the bars he had prepared for his opponent, but just couldn't remember.

"[Dizaster can] spit, aight? I prepared for three weeks, every day to come here. I wrote so many f***in' rhymes, you can't memorize all that sh**. I'm not a good freestyler, I'm technical -- always been that way. I didn't come here to let ya'll down, so this is what I'mma do... You win Diz, aight? But, I wanna still spit my sh**," Canibus explained, before a member of his entourage broke out his notepad.

"You came here to listen to rhymes right? There's 30 pages of rhymes in this motherf***er," he screamed while holding the notepad in the air. "All I wanna do is spit my sh**. The man wins. Let me spit my sh**. Ya'll paid ya bread."

Halfway through Canibus' pre-written bars, fans began fill the venue with boos, prompting him to pause to address the crowd.

"Yo, y'all wanna hear this sh** or not?” he asked. "Yo, don't be a d*** man. I came out here and you paid me my bread, they paid their bread ... let me spit my sh**!"

The move was a head scratcher. In a rap battle, you pull a notebook? Although Canibus was known as one of the genre's illest spitters years ago, in recent years, some of his antics have made him almost laughable.

Following disses toward Slaughterhouse last year, which resulted in the disbanding of his group The HRSMN, Bis surprised fans with a diss track for J. Cole ... but almost immediately apologized for doing so. That was odd, but now this? Sorry Bis, you racking up L after L these days.
