Canibus Channeling His Inner Lil Kim? Disses J. Cole But Why?
I saw @SermonsDomain tweeting about some Canibus x J. Cole beef and I was immediately confused, mostly because Jermaine continuously speaks in interviews about how Cannibus inspired him to become a rapper, and how he was one of the first rappers that he admired. J. Cole first started rapping and battling on a Cannibus Forum, and respects and honors the veteran rapper time and time again.
Canibus is releasing a new album in 2012, Rip The Jacker 2, and will undoubtably be compared to Lil Kim for this unwarranted beef used as promo. ‘Bus needs to stop dissing random people, but to go at someone who defends you is really low! In an interview with Toure, Cole recalls a fight he got into with an old head dissing ‘Bus once,
“We was on the bus, I think we were like going to some basketball game. It was this older dude, he didn’t know what he was talking about. He was dissing Canibus and I got mad.”
So here’s the letter “Captain Cold Crunch” release along with the song trying to justify his reason for the dis.
So Jermaine playing some of your old music at his shows, and appreciating your music publicly is all for show to “give the impression he loves hip-hop and real lyricism”?? What is wrong with that exactly? Doesn’t that imply that he thinks you are a true lyricist? Moving onto his next horrible point…
Cole might say he does this to pay homage, but in reality, by him playing my older material owned by my former label dating back to 1998, subsequently overlooking my current works and contributions which directly benefit me now, he is treating me less like an artist that has, and continues to contribute, influence, and inspire an even younger generation of MC’s coming up, and more like an artist that has physically passed on already(i.e. Tupac, B.I.G., Big L, Heavy D, Eyeda): you get the point I’m trying to make. I can’t help but to think that he is not nearly as sincere or genuine as he would like real hip hop heads to think he is because he speaks about me like I am dead.
WOW so much ridiculous statements right here to take in…CURRENT WORKS?! Why would any artist warm up a crowd playing? 1. because everything you’ve released in the past year has been a diss song and who wants to play into your worthless beefs? 2. because no one in the crowd would recognize or know a current track of yours!
Who would play a slaughterhouse or DJ Premiere diss when they are more relevant than you are?
I’m sorry Canibus but I don’t get the point you are trying to make! Cole has never said RIP Canibus or implied you were dead in anyway, shape, or form…stop being such a sensitive and delusional bitch and get in the studio and make a song that doesn’t diss someone!
You think Jay-z gets offended when people play a song off The Blueprint to warm up a crowd? Nah
