Battle MC, Canibus, has been off of the radar in the industry for a while, but after a three year hiatus, he is remerging with his new album Melatonin Magik, which was released this month.
Rumor has it that his lead single “Only Slaves D.R.E.A.M” is a lyrical jab at Hip-Hop veteran KRS-One, for remarks he made about the 1998 lyrical beef between Canibus and LL Cool J on the Beef II DVD.
“LL Cool J is a lyrical icon,” KRS-One said. “ You don’t come out of your mouth asking to borrow nothing, you need to be happy just to be on the record.”
I’m all for creativity and battles, but it seems as if Canibus is reaching if this is the case. The battle was over 10 years ago and the Beef DVD was over 5 years ago. Really Canibus needs to let go and take the battle for what it was, experience.
