CANIBUS, "C Of Tranquility"


One of the hardest voice and deliverers in the hip hop game. Like, I said before about hardcore and metal — it's amazing how many horrible popular acts there are, yet so many amazingly talented and gifted ones remain on the wayside. Hip Hop is no exception, namely Canibus.

This is the 2008 promo EP, "C Of Tranquility" that was available on his Myspace for download. Nothing short of amazing, as always. If you've never heard Canibus, this is a great 6-song sampler to wet your lips with. If you already know him, I don't have to say anything more.

Not exactly sure why, but A quick read on his Wikipedia page briefly explains why Canibus seems to have had beef with just about everyone (Eminem, Beanie Sigel, Jadakiss - no name a few). Watch and listen to this incredible dis on LL Cool J. Read the back story to it, I love it.

  1. I've had 2000 B.C. since it came out. Dude really does have amazing rhyming skills and he's one of the best freestylers I've ever heard.

    That said - I think the reason he's remained so underground is because he's pretty cocky. And in being so, he's alienated a lot of people. Like you mentioned, he beefs with just about everyone. I don't think that's helped his situation.

    I honestly never really gave the dude much of a shot past his first two albums, but I'll have to check these tracks out and see if he's still 'got it'.

  2. Definitely get up to date with him, at least with this newer shit and last years "For Whom The Beat Tolls". There is a 1,000 bar, 11-minute long song on that. Incredible.

    Just read his Wikipedia, explains some of his beefs on there. You nailed it.

    Bis is cocky, but also very humble. I see why he's cocky though. If you listen to sngs like Genabis, Poet Laureate II, Poet Laureate Infinity, Some of his freestyle...to name a few, you'll see why he is and CAN be cocky. Almost all rappers are cocky, so nothin new there either. In everyone of his beefs, he was diss 1st and retaliated. He never tried to start beef. Read up on it. And on For Whom The Beat Tolls, you only get 2 mixed layers of the 5 200bar layers of the song. The total song is 1000bars, but it's not on the album, just a taste. The entire song is 50mins long.
