Mos Def. He speaks for the ppl an thats what matters at the end of the day. Canibus actually quit once or a few times , while Dante stayed busy one way or another.

Canibus lyrics don't outshine Mos's charisma.

ahh it's hard to compare these two. both are amazing in different skills. They're both great lyricists though. I'm gonna pick Canibus though.. Rip The Jacker was just amazing shit.

lets put it this way.

strange comparison their styles are different....lyrically canibus, flow wise is equal imo, but mos def has a message in his music while canibus just seems to ramble on at times. tough decision. canibus is best at wat he does and so is mos.

How can you compare the two?You got a battle rapper rhyming about space ships and computer chips and someone far less lyrical with a message and a dope flow. I dont know, Mos prolly released more consistent material and some of bis's shit is down right horrid but Rip The Jacker, 2000 B.C and Mic Club are dope and when you consider Canibus did the verses for RTJ without the beats (Stoupe combined the to later i believe) i guess you gotta say bis is a better lyricist

Canibus.............Rip the Jacker...............it's dope as hell man, BUT for me, Mos has something else man....both are in their element and have made some tight albums, but I'ma go with Mos on this one, he just has a lil somethin else for me, I just love his flow to death man. but I would never have thought of compaing the two, intersting...

Bis is ill but Mos is top 10 MC in my opinion. Ain't to many active MC's messing with Mos these days so i'm mos def going for Mos Def.

i haven't heard any of canibus' shit albums but for me the new danger was pretty bad on mos' part.

lyrically canibus is insane, mos isn't fully on his level but mos is the better mc i'd say.

^ Perfect.

I love both, a lot. But it's a pretty shitty comparison. From a technical, lyrical standpoint, Canibus can't be touched by almost anybody. But from a flow, versatility, charismatic point of view, the same could be said for Mos.

I prefer not to have to chose between the two of them. It's like trying to compare Kobe and Shaq's games. They're completely different, yet they're both the best at what they do.

i agree its a poor comparison, but bis has an impecable flow.

Weak comparison so there no point in picking one of the two. Mos is a lot more of an artist and trying to drop some knowledge and a message, which he is great at. Canibus just rips shit apart, which he is the best at.
These two dont do the same shit but a couple of you were acting like Bis can't fuck with Mos, which is fuckin retarted. With respect to Mos, nobody can fuck with Bis at what he does.
