recently sat down with allhiphop.com in England and
commented on his new album, Eminem, Jay-Z and Beanie
Sigel. One of the underground’s favorite MC’s, and
arguably one of the best lyricists of all time, Canibus
has just dropped his independently released 3rd album,
C : True Hollywood Stories.
certain songs on the album, Canibus assumes the role
of Eminem’s Stan character. When asked if this was
meant as a diss to Eminem (See advertisements in The
Source), Canibus blew the notion of dissing Eminem
off. "I have no real reason to diss Eminem,"
Canibus said. "But you have to understand that
it’s Stan spitting. He’s got the right to write a
letter to his man expressing his feelings. Besides
that, it’s all hip hop anyway. Everything I do is
in the name of Hip Hop."
how he felt about Beanie Sigel dropping his name in
his diss record aimed at Jadakiss (I’ll rock your
bells like L/I aint Canibus Nigga), Canibus said "Honestly
I don’t even know what Beanie really meant by that
lyric. I mean I’ve took it everyway it can possibly
be taken," Canibus said. "I figure he thinks
since life is gravy for him cause he’s on the ROC,
he just don’t have a care in the world and can just
say anything on record. I still think he gets busy…But
as far as rhyme for rhyme, seeing me? If any one of
these monkey faced rappers wanna [battle] with me
just name the date and place. Don’t just talk on record.
If you wanna meet a real Mc lets do it."
