Canibus has written nearly all of the greatest lines of all time IMO, despite no mention….”i speak at frenquencies dogs would have trouble hearing, canibus is the lyrical version of german engineering” or “i can double my density from 360 degree to 720 instantly 6 multiplied by 5 then 4 then 3 the 2 then 1, go ahead and calculate the sum” <– tell me what other lyricist can pull off factorials & keep it nice. Granted, it’s not a “sum” but that’s focusing on the wrong bit.
CORY Ure a doughnut lol1!! That verse from Canibus was terrible complete utter garbage- I MEAN SINCE WHEN WAS “DEGREES” THE UNIT OF “DENSITY”?!!!!!!!! Canibus VERSE = SHIT!”" iTS Not a Sum either?!!!!!!!! SHIT LYRICISM PERIOD.
I’m going with the Canibus verse from Lyrical Skillz, the Nas verse from Live at the BBQ, and the Inspectah Deck verse from Triumph, and the Em verse on Renegades. Canibus isn’t whack. Most don’t listen to him but they listen to K West who is a watered down version of Mos Def. It’s all about hooks and beats. The lyrical era is dead. All about style not substance. Hip hop died when Wu stopped coming out with group hits.
Jake. You sound like a clown right now talking garbage like that. Plenty of people still rock Canibus’s old stuff and his new stuff. He just talk about other stuff than most. And his career wasn’t stumped out it was just pushed underground. He still making albums.
And Kenneth, you off base too. I’ll admit that sometimes he says stuff that doesn’t seem to have much relevance or make much sense but that’s not saying he has no substance. He also says stuff that is very relevant and makes a lot of sense so to say he has no substance is grossly inaccurate.
Wow, canibus whack, fuck off.
The best verse best from the east by CANIBUS.
Other sick verses…
Chino XL (Wordsmith) lifes a bitch (az) triumph (inspectah) above the clouds (inspectah) guillotine (Inspectah), paid in full (rakim), lyrics of fury (rakim),
da graveyard (Big L) and Live at the BBQ (nas).
You boys bitin Canibus are retarded man.Check out his verse on lost boyz-beasts from the east.Kool G rap lays down good shit aswell,most artists from Wu,Pun and Big L.Nas is top draw aswell and Em on the slim shady lp is pure fire.Its all about freestyles,you get an mc with nice freestyles and you got decent verses.
RA The Rugged Man’s verse in Uncommon Valor:A Vietnam Story is always the first verse that comes into my head whenever a greatest verse ever discussion comes up. A three minute assault with absolutely no flaws in delivery or lyricism. It’s also the most emotional and meaningful verse I’ve ever heard RA The Rugged Man spit.
canibus and presto are the illest SNM but one of the best verses ive eva heard is psiklone (rhyme asylum) divine right of kings: searchin firefox/ to murder cybercops/break the bill gates smash the windows and burgle microsoft or art of raw: take drugs with no consiounce (I know its spelt wrong) my pupils die-late like columbine killaz with slow watches
dan knows too uncommon valor is one of the best tunes iv heard and ra the rugged man absolutely kills it with a rapid flow but at the same time deep lyrics presto’s lyrical shock and awe is the only song i can say goes harder than uncommon valor but its not even on you tube so good luck findin it lol
You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this
matter to be actually one thing which I believe I might never understand.
It sort of feels too complex and very huge for me.
I am taking a look ahead on your subsequent publish,
I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
