* Poet Laureate Infinity


Im gonna skip the whole intro and history of the Canibus man because im sure most of you know it all already.

1. For Whom the Beat Tolls: Short but sweet, Bis focuses here on the damaged hip-hop industry and shows lyrically how he has not been effected at all from the recent decline in the quality of hip-hop being made. The beat is actually one of the few on the album that really suit Canibus' style. (4/5)

2. Harbringer of Light: Very unconventional vocal sample used, and a very light-hearted beat which im not sure goes perfectly with Canibus' voice, but does merge well with the lyrics Bis lays down. This is the type of song where if it wasn't Canibus, it would probably be very sub-par. It really makes me wonder what another full album of Stoupe production would turn out, but theres nothin wrong with this joint. (3.5/5)

3. Poet Laureate Infinity v003: The second set of 5 sets of 200 bars of pure lyrical mastery. Very gritty, yet simple beat loops that allow you to concentrate more on what Canibus is saying. I wouldn't suggest listening to all 5 parts one after another, you might slip into a worm-hole or just pass out. Dope ass shit, so artistic. (4.5/5)

4. Liquid Wordz (feat. Sun & Killah Priest): Clearly an unoriginal name, but also a tribute (being a Wu fan i appreciate it). A simple beat loop but a very nice hook that shows its head once in a while. Sun sounds a little awkward lyrically following up Bis, but he does not come weak by any means (is he Kool G Rap's vocal stunt double or what?). KP is onpoint as he's ever been, and as off-beat as he's ever been, but overall a worthy appearance from the Horsemen. Bis sneaks in a nice short verse at the end of the song to reinforce his stamp on the album. (4/5)

5. Father Author, Poor Pauper: Sadly another mediocre beat, especially placed next to Canibus lyrics. Overall not a rememberable track, but still a decent one because Bis doesnt slow down until the very last second. (3/5)

6. Dreamzzzzz: Another tribute to hip-hop (Dreams - B.I.G.), but instead of R&B singers Canibus shows his eternal lust for female news anchors, hence the hook: "Dreams of fuckin a female news anchor". As far as i can see, its excellent comedic relief, but OBVIOUSLY still lyrically tight. Beat suits the song, but still an overall O.K. tune. (3/5)

7. Magnum Innominandum: Finally a beat i could groove to after i run thru Canibus' stunning lyrics, and on this song he is super-nice the whole time. "I gotta keep Hip-Hop open, if they close it I'm homeless/If I lose it I'm broken, if I disown it I'm hopeless/I am a hopeless romantic Trans-Atlantic pimp/In the pacific stickin' dick to Los Angeles bitches" Fire. (4.5/5)

8. Layered Prayers: An absolute gem beginning to end. NOT TO BE SLEPT ON. maybe the best lyrical song of the album, and a nice quick driving beat that fits perfectly. Honestly too many quotes to drop, i wanted to keep this brief. (5/5)

9. The Fusion Centre (feat. Vinnie Paz): This collab has always turned out dope tracks, and this one is no different. The beat is interesting and goes well with both emcees, Bis rips shit apart and Paz is decent, but overall the song may be a little too short. (4/5)

10. 702-386-5397: Very, very, very distracting beat that doesn't go very well with Canibus, but luckily he shines lyrically as usual (you'll notice some sort of trend thru the album, Bis = sick). This song should've been 2 minutes, not some of the other gems on the album, but whatever. He's right when he says "Don't trust the beat, trust me Canibus the MC". (3.5/5)

11. The Goetia: Solid beat here and Canibus stays on-point, but nothing earth-shattering. Not alot to say about this track, but that i really like the drum loop? (4/5)

12. Secrets Amongst Cosmonauts: Kind of a Channel Zero pt. 2 but less concentrated on the alien conspiracy idea, another candy beat with little drums and bass, and some kind of sunshine singing sample, but in the end sounds alright. Canibus drops many gems and fits all together lyrically very well. i would've liked him to explain the whole Cosmonaut enlightenment thing a little better, but a solid track. (4/5)

13. One Ought Not to Think: Another 2 minute gem, but definately not to be stepped on. The beat is very nice and gets you in the zone for the shit your about to hear. And the shit i mention you'll have to hear a few times to connect everything and understand Canibus (maybe even do some googling). Again too many quotes to list here, id prolly just copy and paste the whole song... a classic track packed with wisdom. TOO fucking short. (5/5)

14. Javelin Fangz: I kinda wish Bis let the sample at the beginning go off more clearly, but you can tell right away this is a vicious song. If there was anybody to rip a mic, its Canibus on this song. Sort of a weird beat but i think it works well enough (atleast in comparison to the other tracks), great lyrics not that you'd be suprised :satisfy:. (4.5/5)

15. There Has He Been (feat. K-Solo): When i first saw this i was a little hesitant because i havent heard K-Solo in well, a long-ass time. Anyway, the beat moves along nice and quickly, reminding me of a 2000 B.C. vibe. Bis is dope as usual and K-Solo sounds elementary next to him, but he comes raw as fuck. Definately the best suprise song of the entire album, K-Solo is just too grimey. (4/5)

16. Poet Laureate Infinity v004: Refer to track 3. (4.5/5)

* Poet Laureate Infinity: 1000 bars, 50 minutes. All the lyrical intelligence you'll need for 3 years atleast, period. "Never done before in history" is right. If Bis aint one of the real G.O.A.Ts then i dunno who would be.


Overall grade: 4.5/5. Close to a perfect album if it werent for a few weak link beats. Canibus doesnt come off wack for a second on the entire thing, and not only that, at times he shows wisdom beyond PL:II and RTJ as an album. The fact he's only 33 years old kind of scares me, and can only make me wonder how higher he could reach, because he seems to be getting tighter by the day.

GO COP THIS ALBUM if you haven't already, and dont just take it from my amateurish review, hear it for yourself theres ENOUGH samplers and tracks to preview.

Long live the Canibus man.

peace.

Canibus is a legend I loved "Rip Tha Jacker" and the Poet Laurete persona he has created is pure genius.

I would love to see him do a track with Holocaust I think they would go crazy together.
I voted vey nice also - Great Album.

I voted "decent", but I think it is more than decent. "Very Nice" and 4/5 was just a bit high for me. I'd give it a 7/10. It's a good album, but not great. The real disappointment for me is the 'Poet Laureate' tracks. I'm now to the point of skipping them when I bump this joint. There's just nothing to justify their being as long as they are. But aside from a few tracks I really like this album. Definitely one of his better efforts.

i agree with you on the infinity tracks in that you cant be listening to a mix of songs or even the cd itself and vibe the whole 11 minutes, twice. i wouldve liked him to put them both at the end of the album cuz of that.. but what justifies them being that long is canibus making himself the ultimate emcee.. like emcees since forever have always built themself up in their lyrics, not only does bis do it lyrically he makes a 1000 bar song to brag aswell. but i tell you - the whole infinity song is good for video games.. haha

When it comes to Canibus’ career what can you really say and what is his legacy as a emcee. Well from an outsiders stand point they may only know him through his “4,3,2,1” days when he had a beef with LL Cool J which is still the most debatable battle in hip hop history. But from a fan stand point he’s an emcee who can rap and out rap the best of them into the ground with tracks like his “Poet Laureate” series of tracks that have lead to “Poet Laureate Infinity” with not one but two of them that are 1,000 bars each. And there both clocked in at 11:00 plus minutes each that’s twenty two minutes combined. DAMN, that’s advancing the game this reviewer says.

On what is Canibus’ 11th (yes 11th) album since his 1998 debut album that many either regard as either garbage or dope but with that aside his new album “For Whom The Beat Tolls” is like an episode of the Twilight Zone. And the ready for saying that is the album has the allure about it that you didn’t know what any of the tracks were gonna sound like and there were almost no leakage of the album until the Friday before its initial release until it got pushed back one week until June 12th.

From tracks like the “Harbinger of Light” which gives real insight to the good of hip hop music and an ode to those with the power to use it. To other tracks such “Father Author, Poor Pauper” which is a story track where Bis breaks down his career in a third person point of view laced with his government conspiracy theory. From the unusually hilarious “Dreamzzzz” where he borrows Biggie Small’s concept and tweaks only Canibus can. And in “Dreamzzzz” Bis speaks on he fantasizes on how we wants to bang some of the world’s hottest news anchors. I think Bis’ lyrics on this track is done so good not because there was doubt Bis can pull it off and he did very impressively.

I gotta admit as much as I wanna rate this a classic there is rarely a misstep on this album even the production is dope. I mean with cats like Scram Jones, J.Wells (who did several tracks on this album), Moss, Shuko and a slew of other unknown producers. I mean its funny when most of the mainstream shunned Bis and the underground seems to be the most fitting home for Bis because it seems to allow him to do him without all the pressure to sell records.


Overall every track isn’t classic but considered the effort and various flows and guest all the tracks are dope enough to garner praise from fans it seems like Bis can make a good album when he’s pressured too and left to his own devices. As far as standout tracks such as “The Fusion Centre” featuring Vinnie Paz from Jedi Mind Tricks, “Javelin Fangz”, “Layered Prayers” and “The Goetia” all make you feel Canibus artistry grow and have grown expotentially since his days with Wyclef. This album isn’t for the non-Bis fans this is for his hardcore fans which this reviewer is. Even if the flaws of this album is minor there’s no signs of slowing down for Canibus yet. I’m going to give it four stars because its great but not close enough to the classic material you know Canibus can do.

RATING: 4 OUT OF 5 STARS

this album... i dunno, probably need to give it some more spins.

it could have been great, but i really think the Infinity tracks were executed poorly and kind of messed the flow of the album.

he needed to have the beat changing, but having the same beat... over 2 11+ minutes track... didnt work for me.

no doubt they were amazing as a concept, and i enjoyed it lyrically, i just dont think it was executed as well as it could have been.

however i did like a fair few tracks on the album, and i feel Canibus is getting back to his old self. now im just waiting for RJ II to drop.

i'd give this a 7.5 over all.

favourite track:

Magnum Innominandum
Layered Prayers
The Goetia
The Fusion Centre
One Ought Not To Think


"i turned my back on rap, like God turned his back on Edan, to return like cat stevens"

i was only able to sit through this one a few times at the most. i wasn't really feeling most of this album. some of the collabs were tight, but as a whole, it just flat out doesn't hold my interest. the infinity tracks are dope, but not something i could listen to on a regular basis.

and just for the record, those two versions of Infinity are only 200 bars each, and the verses are very choppy. there was a 1000 bar version (a whole 49 minutes and change) that i had the leak of back when the beat didn't change, and it was mixed even worse. After hearing that a few times, i came to the conclusion that Canibus is not a human being, but either a machine or an extra-terrestrial.

6 out of 10, but only cuz he's a lyrical genius. however, that also hurts him in the end egowise (i hate big egos).

GTFOH

you sound stupid

Canibus quotes of the day: Wisley worded speech, frame and technique and thermal heat bridges the verbal to the beat, providing earth for your feet

The lion on the loose is not a reckless recluse, but really a dictator with his neck in a noose for war crimes hardcore rhymes from a warped mind that enjoyed the dark matter in the void before time

Firstly, it’s 55 mins and some change. Secondly, did you just say ONLY 200 bars? Ha. Ha. And of course they sound choppy, the bars are taken all from different places within PLOO, that’s the whole point of the music which has been created. Now if it sounds confusing for ya, why are you on a Wu website? Wu started the movement when it comes to poetry and hiphop being fused together, Bis has now mastered it. 1000 bars, 5 layers of about 211 bars each, all interlinked together, some with multiple meanings, this is the best hiphop/poetry/music ever created, and all you can see is that its been blended a little choppy???

Lyrical genius yes, but big ego.....who in hiphop don't have a big ego, at least bis has a reason for havin' such a big ego, who else would even come up with an idea close to this, while all the other artists in the game are cryin' hiphop is dead, bis is doing something completely new and fresh to keep it alive and show the infinite possibilities of hiphop, THIS HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE WITH A RHYME OUTSIDE THE REALM OF TIME ITS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND!

aight newbie,

just cuz you're on Bis' dick doesn't give you the right to think you're on his level. Smif N Wessun once said "Wipe Ya Mouf" to dick riders.

i'm gonna attempt to clarify a little better, since you didn't read carefully the last time.

i never said that the 2 versions of Infinity were confusing. i sat through them at least 3 times each, AND i listened to the 1000 bar version about 5 times. i just thought that the choppiness of the final versions killed the tracks. that's not all i CAN say, that's just all that i said. i happen to own just about every Bis album, so don't assume i'm hating because i'm just stating my opinion.

the 1000 bar version that i have is 49 minutes and change not 55 (remember i said i had the BOOTLEG before the album dropped and my version was mixed really really REALLY badly. the beat cut out a few times and so did parts of the verses, obviously unintentionally. reading is fundamental.)

also, i happened to say that i enjoyed a few of the collabs on the album. Sun God spit the best verse i'd ever heard from him in my opinion. but i guess that isn't important.

lastly, there are more rappers (Kanye West, 50 Cent, etc.) that have big egos than hip hop artists (KRS One, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Aesop Rock, etc.) one could debate that it is the opposite, and in the end it's really all opinions. it's just like this situation, but you have to learn to read carefully. innovation is one thing, but the only reason another artist probably won't try to top Infinity, is because they haven't released 3000 minute CD-R's yet. besides that, not enough people would want to listen to a 300000000000000000000000 bar verse (don't bother calculating, cuz i know it's not really that many bars, genius.)

and by the way, i've done a long song with no chorus before. it's actually easier than structurizing verse/chorus songs if there's no real topic. i may not have used big words or scientific terms or any of that, but the song was made. anything is easy if you don't have a real deadline or you don't ever sleep.

your boy Bis is not saving hip hop. there's nothing wrong with hip hop. commercial rap is the real issue. try saving that, or help destroy it. either way.

Hmmmmmmmmmm.................i'm on bis's dick cause I think he creates great music? do you even know what you talk of, when you step to me, talk like a man. You talk about Canibus and other MC's having ego's, the only ego I’ve seen which is backed up by nothing is yours, you talk like a real talking walking caricature, Ha. Ha. Pathetic. Respect and dick riding are 2 different things, respect has a reason, it is shown when earned, dick ridin’ is backed up with nothing.

So lesson 1. When you talk to Hafiz, don't be a dickhead.

This is a very important lesson to learn, now you know mr. "eight-bizza-gee", your posts mean nothing to me. I did read your post, and your reply has further cemented the truth into my mind, keep digging. Ha. Ha.

I like this part of your post, its really rather most amusing when you talk like this:

innovation is one thing, but the only reason another artist probably won't try to top Infinity, is because they haven't released 3000 minute CD-R's yet. besides that, not enough people would want to listen to a 300000000000000000000000 bar verse (don't bother calculating, cuz i know it's not really that many bars, genius.)

Ha. Ha.

You dared to compare yourself to the RIPPER? Did you know that there are 2 million MC's on Myspace, your just a have a go MC, fall back son and never compare yourself to the ripper.

"use big words"??? Top Infinity???? no real topic??

firstly, bis doesn't "use big words", if you read MY last post, I said he has created a new style of rhyming which combines POETRY and HIPHOP, this involves HIDING the true meaning of the rhymes in POETRY, so there IS a message in PL OO, there are many many messages, so there alone, you don't understand what the fuck it is and your opening your mouth and giving an opinion???

You also failed to understanding of infinity and the time structure of this work, it is a new style of rhyming because all the bars are interlinked, this isn't a track that starts and ends, in essence, there is no beginning and there is no end, every bar is connected, with each combination a different message is given. You don't even understand it yet you cast judgement, WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?

I don't have an ego, your the one coming here talking as if your opinion matters, but you can't even understand that their is a message, forget about what it is.

You diss the fact I have a few posts? this is my first post on this website:

http://www.wutang-corp.com/forum/showpost.php?p=899378&postcount=7

Understand what poetry hiphop IS, thats probably more knowlege you've dropped with all your 166 posts, 166 of asshole opinions, well done, you have an opinion, i'll do a one handed man's clap for ya.

You compared Bis to hiphop alone? why not compare him to Mozart? or Ferdowsi? But you wouldn't even get why.....how bout we compare him to Mohammad??

THIS IS THE GREATEST RHYME OF ALL TIME......but apparently that was the Quran, no?

This is what bis is attempting:

Let us look at Noble Verse 2:23 "And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant, then produce a Sura like thereunto; and call your witnesses or helpers (If there are any) besides God, if your (doubts) are true."

Let us look at Noble Verse 17:88 "Say: 'If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support.'"

This is known as GOD's Challenge.

Bars from PLOO:

Inspired by God, inspired by the suffering,
Was it done by a prophet? It must of been, who was it then,
Rip the Jacker,

Every clergy member from Mecca who heard of me worshipped me, 30

Judge me fairly, compare me,
To Dante Alighieri's Purgatorio theory,

This is ONE of the many things that PLOO is doing all at once, PLOO isn't something that is released today and understood all in one day, you can't compare bis to 50, its not that easy, bis is attempting something the great poets did, elevating hiphop. Elevating hiphop is not going and standing in clubs with a mad look on ya face posin’ with any random white girl to show you're “CRAZY”.

I'm not on bis's dick because I respect the man, pick up a copy of Shahnameh, some of the great Hafez’s work maybe? Or am I on their dicks too? See what poetry is really about, then understand what PLOO is about.

Okay, enough at ridiculing your existence, that’s too easy, lets move on, from the same track you was talking about, the one feat. Sun and priest.

LIQUID WORDZ, reminds me of Liquid SWORDZ, no?

out take of bis's bars:

"Too deep to say peace to, I pray about peace for you
Very soon 'The Goetia' will eat you
The Keys of Solomon will open the doors to that bottomless prison
And let Leviathan's army in
'Liquid Wordz' spit superb"

sun's own verse:

"That's why Canibus handed me the scrolls for Infinity
What he actually gave me a moment of clarity
It's complex simplicity, self contradictory
Philosophers speak about the God of man mystery
'Cause we've been fooled by religion and history
'Cause the path to eternity starts internally
According to the sundown, the time is at hand
For me to reveal the man exactly who I am
I am the apostles who writing the Bible in Ebonics
I'm Elijah Mohammad who sell chronic
Martin Luther with a German Luger
I'm Malcolm X on your project steps busting a tech
Gandhi with an M-P-C who MC mad nice
I'm Christ in a cipher shooting dice"

Priest:

"Somewhere in a giant stone cave
Where the entrance is big enough to accommodate a pterodactyl in flight
Priest sit in the tabernacle and write
While jackal fight over the poisoned emperor's body
Priest and Canibus enjoy their memorable armies"

ARMY???

Who do YOU think bis and priest are talking about?? on a track called Liquid WORDZ??

from PLOO:

"I kneeled before Congress and begged for money,
Submitting specifics about the operation I'm running,
You gotta love it, what was it called? The G8 Summit,
"Never heard of it", no details are public,"

Who is the g8? Do you know? I don't know....Ha. Ha.

This within what PLOO is what PLOO is about, what i'm doing right now, self mechanism which causes a snowball effect, but that’s only impressive to the expert, you stay simple for now.

Go and read up, find out why bis is quoting H.P Lovecraft, find out what the HRSMN are about, go listen to killah priest's album, who also came out with a poetry style of hiphop album this year.

I'm not going to sit here and link everything for you, because you won't appreciate nothing, even if its broken down in front of your face, even if it was pure hiphop to its core, you won't understand it.

Your ignorance has been noted, next time you give your opinion on something, first understand what it is, figure out who's involved, what its about. Its like saying the great pyramid of the Giza is a decent structure just by looking on the outside of it, or saying that the sun's a bit hot, until you experience it and understand, you can't judge nothing.

Fall back son, just because your brain can't comprehend such information, do not dare talk down to me, that’s what EGO is, your ego is telling you right now "I KNOW WHAT REAL HIPHOP IS, I KNOW EVERYTHING, I’M BETTER THAN CANIBUS, I KNOW IT", but your mind is saying "WHAT THE FUCK??? I DONT GET IT". That’s why compared to Hafiz, you are very very basic and I will always get the last laugh.

Ha. Ha.

http://www.canibus-central.com/site/media/pli_mixing_board/

That’s the link, go listen again and actually think, don’t listen and cast judgement before you have even begun to understand what is going on. This is Layered Music, find out what the means.

“Rap Music and those who listen to it don't owe me nothing, I don't want nothing from you, not even your judgement,”

good lookin out dubbz. glad someone sees things clearly.

this is the last thing that i'm gonna say to you, Hafiz.

you came at me on some disrespectful shit from the jump, because i didn't give your boy Bis' "Greatest Rhyme of All Time" or "PLOO?" as you call it, the props that YOU think it deserves. big fucking deal. if i hurt your feelings, too bad. there are most likely a handful of other people on here besides me and Dubbz that feel the same about this coaster of a record. the only thing that i'm guilty of is trying to reason with your stubborn ass on an online forum. you, on the other hand, are at fault for taking me out of context in the first place. i just said what i needed to say. i was actually hyped about that album before i got my hands on it, but after the few times i listened to it, i knew that Bis could have done a way better job. he needs to go back and put 2000 B.C. on repeat for a week, and realize how great that he USED TO be.

go to the post about "hip hop lines that make you go oh shit" and you'll see that at least two posts of mine are lines from Bis (one of them being his whole verse from Horsementality, because that is one of my favorite tracks to this day.)

I own just about every single Canibus album there is. I just got tired of his binary code raps. I prefer Wu-Tang and BCC, because they at least don't rhyme about the same shit for every single track on their albums.

now, you wanna play some crab shit and call me out on my looks. i'd have jokes about your face too, but you don't have a pic posted. your opinion is shit to me. plus, if you said half of what you said on here to me in person, i'd just laugh it off and move on to the next discussion. i'm the most laid back person you'll ever meet, but i will call someone out when they sound like a retard (i.e. you.)

until you can say you know me, you got no grounds to call me fake. your actions give me reason to believe that you're a chump in your parents' basement, but again, i don't know you either.

now, take whatever non-witty rebuttle you have and swallow it, because you'd just be wasting more time than i did writing this.

peace

Ha. Ha. Learn how to spell REBUTTAL, because your spelling of the word is about as weak as your one was.

I'm actually very disappointed in you, I give you a simple lyrical breakdown and start talking about rhymes, I talk about hip-hop, and all you can say is "Stan" because you can't talk about the music, the topic at hand. To me this is a sign of weakness, you can't debate about rhymes, so you revert to name calling, well, a few simple disses about your physical attributes, and look what we have, an emotional outpouring. I did this intentionally, just to show how much shit you chat. I find it rather touching that you are so defensive about your image.

I don't have to post pictures of myself or give you personal information, I know who I am and no matter what is said, I can't let go of that, therefore I’d never get as defensive as you do, Ha. Ha. Pathetic.

There is nothing I need to say about the rhymes to you, you have the brain of a 12 yr old Britney wannabe, but a hip-hop version, if you understood poetry and hip-hop and everything to do with music, you would understand an artist can never "fall off", not a true artist, they merely chase something that you do not find interesting, but there is a reason for it. Van Gogh wasn't appreciated until he died, he died poor, unloved, in death he was seen as a genius, so judge all you like, if you don't understand what the hell the music is about, your opinion is the same as Oprah talking about hip-hop. WORTHLESS.

Ha. Ha. also about the comment about every album being the same, listen to the albums and you'd realise what is going on.

What I think is the cutest thing is that you have a "tag team" member, who chat's as much shit as you. I think I’ll add this for him.

I gotta defend my boy eightbizza here by saying that as someone who thinks canibus has come way before his time and is dropping knowledge that people 20 years from now still will not understand, the record is wack. rip the jacker was fly, this record sucks. poet laureate infinity (that OO shit is fucking stupid) is an incredible creation but it has no replay value and it just furthers the argument that canibus is way too intelligent for anyone but it's one thing to make music that people can consider "holier than thou" and it's another thing to make music that people can listen to over and over. that album sucks and you can't listen to it over and over, unlike rip the jacker and mic club

OKAY!

This is quite amusing.

FIRSTLY, let me ask you this, IF there was a movement in hip-hop RIGHT NOW, would you know???? IF there were key members within hip-hop making moves to save hip-hop, would you know???? Even if they were making it as clear as day, yet, would you suspect a thing?

What I find funny is this:

"poet laureate infinity (that OO shit is fucking stupid) is an incredible creation but it has no replay value and it just furthers the argument that canibus is way too intelligent for anyone but it's one thing to make music that people can consider "holier than thou" and it's another thing to make music that people can listen to over and over. that album sucks and you can't listen to it over and over, unlike rip the jacker and mic club"

PLOO(the PLOO is the way it is typed, even by Canibus himself, if you feel like its stupid, email the man, Canibus is humble, he'll reply.)

"Canibus is way too intelligent for anyone"

I doubt this is true, the poetry is pretty simple, it’s only if you choose to accept what information they give, or if you wish to ignore the obvious.

I don't consider bis's music "holier than thou" as you creatively put it, but I see him as a poet, just as I would see many poets who incorporate god into their work. If you accept Islam, then you believe the quaran was written by god, but if you don't, it was written by a highly advanced poet, and the section in the quaran offering the challenge is only a challenge from one poet to another. This isn't the first time bis has used religion as inspiration, the same album you mentioned, RTJ, has 2 tracks on it, genabis(genesis) and levitibus(Leviticus) and also on bisVrip talks about the exobus (exodus) scripts as he does on genabis in the chorus (genabis, exobus, levitibus, there isn't a mic on this planet i'm restricted to touch). These are all chapters in the bible, the old testament.

The RTJ album and Mic club album you talk about is filled with clues about PLOO's creation, bis created PLOO back in 2003, he's been waiting to drop it, for what though?

Listen to Genabis. what is bis talking about? on Poet Laureate 2, bis mentions "the greatest rhyme of all time". on M-Sea-Cresy(MC SECRECY), "what are we all to do when rap music is gone? I hope god that the imagination of one, a golden tongue can achieve synchronicity with the sun, transcended beyond the flesh and the blood".

I'll show you something about RTJ album, from poet laureate 2:

"He was the illest alive but nobody would face it
he spit till his tongue was too torched to taste, it
properly funded corporations carbon-dated his latest creations
to extract the information
They found it utterly amazing
they claimed the body of his work was the same thing as a priceless painting
Never mattered to him, the art galleries hated him
cause Thomas Kinkade called, said he would take 10
COMPLETE ENIGMAS wrapped in puzzles encrypted in language
with sound but without shape or signature"

In poetry terms, he's talking of Babygrande and the RTJ album. 10 complete enigmas would be the 10 tracks on the RTJ album. You've listened, you claim it’s a good album, did you break down each enigma? did you understand the album in every detail and understand what the narrator was trying to say?

Ha. Ha. I doubt it.

Priest on canibus's album talks about an army, on his own album on salvation talks about being the "general", talks about the "brotherhood" which is talked about on PLOO. Nas who is also mentioned twice in PLOO, on the next track talks about being a follower to a general. Is it really a coincidence that Nas comes out with hiphop is dead, KRS with hiphop lives? Immortal technique talks about the world ending in a similar fashion canibus has been talking about on PLOO on priests album, "pivot the planet", i.e pole shift. Not the first time, bis and tech have quoted each other on tracks before. Canibus on the same album talks about 2012, but also about beef, as he does on PLOO.

Basic links to nas on PLOO:

"I heard Hip Hop was dead, that's not fair,
Who I talk to?, "Go he there" Nasir,"

"I said "Nobody benefits, Everyone perishes"
I tell them this, They say, "Here, it's time for your medicine",
Imagine being fined over a rhyme? For stepping over the line?
When I inspired Hova and Nas,"

PLOO is the future, the plan, what is to come, yea, currently you may see it as something with no replay value, but what happens when the movement really starts? wouldn't you want to go back and find out what the hells going on? each player within this game, what they are doing to help this movement?

Yea, I may seem crazy now, but lets wait and see what happens, but PLOO isn't dying any time soon, with new blends being created on a daily basis and official album out soon also.

Here's an outtake of priests journal on hiphopgame.com

http://www.hiphopgame.com/index2.php3?page=kpjournal

"Speaking of that, I was just out here with Canibus and we had a long conversation with GZA. I also got to chill with Flavor Flav and we went to a house party with GZA. We went to the Sky Bar and then we went to this house party. Anyway, Canibus gave me the track he wants me on. He’s still spitting. I don’t know what to call him. He’s a deity when it comes to spitting. He’s incredible. He already gave me the track. You know how ‘Bis goes in. He just blacks out."

PLOO is the relevant movement, bringing together everything there is to create a new style of rhyming, ask yourself, could this possibly be true? you talk about RTJ album, here's an outake from that:

"This game is Chinese chess, countless issues need to be addressed
Before the East nukes the West; totalitarianistic cause-'n-effect
"Run the words through a decompressor, recompress the depth""

and on the next verse:

"Until I'm impressed with the print I can hear a pin drop like Sprint
Once it BLENDS I can stop right then
Quantum coupling mechanisms and technical shit
Confuses you but I don't think your any less of a dick
Just define what is POETRY and what is RAP
I demonstrate how to effectively "Bridge the Gap"
The answer is simple in fact:
If the protons don't attack the retina, all we'd ever see is black"

Until you take steps to give the words meaning and you can understand what the basic poetry is telling you, you can not judge the body of the work canibus creates. Canibus is an artist, therefore he doesn't create music which is wanted, but music which is needed, to fulfill his desire to be an artist and beyond that, to save the music itself.

Find out what the hell the title of the album means, it was taken from a poem which actually means something, which is linked back to the track No Return on RTJ, noticed the bell at the end of that track? how about the chorus, do you even know what it says? how it links to the other tracks on the RTJ album, especially genabis, levitibus and M-Sea-Crsey, the tracks just before. There is truly too many links for me to show you, this isn't me being "stan" or a dickrider, I appreciate great poetry, great works of art, great hiphop, masterful hiphop, this is it. If you fail to see and appreciate the work, why it was created, how, and where the artist is going with it, there is no way on earth you can judge the work. Or should I say, you can, but your opinion truly means nothing, just like Oprah's opinion of hiphop.

Break some lyrics down, understand what the hell is going on in the FWTBT's album, you will see not only does it connect to PLOO, but connects to 2000BC, Can-I-Bus, even C true hollywood stories, every single album, the album is far beyond the words alone, its a new style of rhyming which has never been attempted before, if you can't understand what it is, there is no way in HELL you can judge it. Ha. Ha.

That’s why bis calls these albums "proof", not just proof that he does it intentionally, but proof as in the manuscript to the plan, the grand plan.

I'm done typin', just so you know Mr."eight-bizza-gee", typing isn't a thing, this didn't take me but a quick minute, and if I wanted to I could keep dissin ya, your nothing but a belligerent fool, but i'm here to talk about the topic, if you want to talk about the album, the rhymes, keep it there, because you have a lack of knowledge about the rhymes or hiphop or how to break down rhymes, don't chat shit to me by calling me "stan". I showed you how I broke down Bronze Nazareth's track also, does that make me his stan too? Don't get it wrong, I know a lot about PLOO only because I appreciate only masterful, unique and advanced hiphop from the people who strive to keep this ARTform alive, bis is in that category, i'm sorry if that bothers you.

wow it's the davey d of canibus.

aight G i actually read your entire essay and yet i didn't see much of anything new. i'm glad that you have enough time in your existence to break down the lyrics of someone you have never met.

first of all my "holier than thou" comment had nothing to do with religion. as someone who seems to be as intelligent as you i kinda figured you would understand that the phrase simply refers to someone who thinks their shit is better than everyone else's.

now that line about tag team was a reference, if you ain't catch that you need to press rewind (yet another reference within a reference, can you reference that?)

i have thoroughly listened to the rip the jacker album. in fact i hated on canibus until i heard rip the jacker and then i had to go back and listen to mic club and realized what i missed. i'll still say all his other albums suck but whatever, an opinion is just that - an opinion.

now personally as far as a movement goes, bad boy had a movement, death row had a movement, cold chillin had a movement, even the bullshit ass south had a movement. canibus ain't starting no movement on his own. he might be trying but in order for it to flourish it has to go somewhere and gain some ground and support, none of which he is getting.

yes he is too intelligent for 90% of the population. in fact i made a comment a little while back about how canibus should just straight up kill himself, why you might ask. well think of this scenario - canibus slices himself and dies, leaving blood dripping on pages of his work. while investigating the scene police discover the pages of his work and start to read them, realizing that this man is complete fucking genius. that work of his gets published and it begins the movement that you are talking about of him becoming known as the greatest author of all time.

i won't deny that dude is a genius, thing is that just because the dude can write shit that stephen hawking can't even understand doesnt mean that his music is listenable. i'm all for learning shit while listening to rap (i grew up on bdp) however i still wanna enjoy what i'm hearing and that new record of his is wack on the ears. yes it may be lyrically tight but if i can't stand the sound then it's being turned off. 2Pac is an incredible writer but his music sucks and aside from 2Pacalypse Now i really can't listen to most of his shit cause it's wack. His poetry is nice but that's where it ends, his music and his flow and his delivery is completely wack.

now you talked a lot of shit about both me and bizza and i'll tell you a fact that both of us got more hip hop knowledge in our heads than 95% of so called "hip hop heads". we know our shit, trust me on that. the references that are dropped in conversations we have are so obscure that sometimes i won't even realize dude referenced something until it hits me the next day, meaning that there is so much hip hop knowledge in my brain that i gotta sort through it all to find little bits of shit that get lost in the massive catalogue.

the real problem here is that we can't unite and politic together. hip hop has been about promoting peace for a long time now (unforunately mainstream rap has skewed that idea 180 but fuck them). instead of fighting we should bring our ideas together and politic. some of the best conversations i have with people are about hip hop and the absolute best ones are with people who don't agree with me. i met this kid once at a party who i found out was heavy into hip hop so we started speaking. turns out this dude was a straight up el-p dickrider. if it was on def jux he jerked off to it. now me personally, i used to feel that shit but i kinda got tired of it. saying the most twisted shit you can think of just to confuse people into thinking you are smart is not really my type of hip hop but i figured i'd still talk to this dude cause he seemed to know his shit. turned out he didn't ("i've been listening to rap all the way back since midnight mauraders".....yeah...that ain't shit). i crushed the kid and made him feel like shit but it was a great conversation because it was all about hip hop and eventually we disagreed completely but for a while we were having a good talk (btw never tell me jay-z sucks because when i'm done with you there will be nothing for you to say other than "you're right").

i love this board because it gives me the opportunity to read other people's thoughts on hip hop and that is what i don't get enough of in my life. other than bizza i know like 2 other people who i can talk hip hop with and one of the them is so opposed to mainstream rap he won't even try to write something satirical of mainstream rap. i love the debate and i applaud your efforts in your nice little post there but until dude sells more than 2,000 records (check the babygrande page) there will be no "movement" involving canibus. you need an army, not 2,000 backpackin' college kids
