Hip-Hop Rumors: Canibus Apologizes For Rap Battle "Dizaster"


Canibus has issued an apology for his major choke during the Pay-Per-View event – Vendetta: Battle Royale over the weekend that had rap battle fans everywhere, including rapper Talib Kweli and producer Alchemist shaking their heads in disgust, when Canibus did the ultimate rap battle no-no and pulled out a notepad. Check out Canibus apology below swiped from his tumblr page. Cue the Twilight Zone music…now:

“The day of the battle my memory and mental state wasn’t 100% due to these circumstances. I knew this so I brought my copybook to practice the 30 plus pages of infinite rhymes that I had structured for Dizaster. The stitches in the back of my head were hurting me and my shoulder was killing me but The Ripper doesn’t need medication, he controls pain with his mind. At the event I was very confident with the likes of Supernatural behind me and the guy who’s strong stomach was showing- But to protect him from any abduction I won’t reveal his name- Lets just call him Subject 10. The crowd showed me energy as well and as I delivered my first round I could see in Dizaster’s eyes he was intimidated by the mind with the infinite rhyme. Eventually the traumatic effect I suffered days before caught up to me and I could no longer be as sharp as I needed to be. The fans paid money, as did the KOTD staff, so even though there was nothing left in my mental tank, I reached for what is now the infamous notepad and decided to read my infinite rhymes. Needless to say, the results were underwhelming and it didn’t look right, but now, realizing the actions that preceded the event I’m sure you all understand.”


“Firstly, I want to apologize first to ‘Subject 10’ whose vehicle I abandoned when the agents were approaching me. Secondly, I’d like to apologize to Supernat because I made him come support me and stand behind me for that embarrassment. Thirdly, I’d like to apologize to all The Rippers in attendance who I let down. Finally, I’d like to apologize to Dizaster and the entire KOTD staff. I tried my best and stood there like the solider I am but there was nothing I can do. As I said in the event, I could only do what I can do. For everyone who seems to be making a mockery out of my just- Remember this; dinosaurs once ruled the planet, Rome was once a powerhouse, The Blazers drafted Greg Oden, and every dog has its day. Doubt me and you will be defeated.”

Do you feel sorry for Canibus? Do you believe his excuses or did he just bite off more than he could chew getting into the ring with Dizaster?

  • dizaster bodied this guy…..canibus gotta battle again to make up fa that wackness

    • Yea its me

       Bodied who?  He was okay but he won by default.

      • Yeah, this battle was Canibus’ to lose, but don’t let that overshadow Dizaster’s performance. Dude had some serious deathblows in his spits. I think he still would have taken the win regardless.

      • churchboy2

        Did you watch the entire battle?

        Dizaster did body him. This one section alone proves it:

        The problem is to hip-hop you are unique
        and that’s why it also bothers me
        ’cause I feel like I’m putting my own dog to sleep
        …homie I get my ‘G’ on
        I’m a real MC I get my free on
        So it makes sense that he’s got this stupid little sling on
        Because he’s never been a good sholder to lean on

        Body bag.

      • $24514025

        Dizaster is corny.

      • churchboy2

        …and he still bodied Canibus.

      • $24514025

        Nah he just didn’t memorize his rhymes or wateva was the reason for not being 100% ….n u a church boy stop using the word bodied…

      • churchboy2

        Did you watch the entire battle? Did you read the quote I posted?

        A few key points that you are overlooking:

        1) Canibus’ writtens that he read off the sheet were worse than the ones he did memorize

        2) Diz had so many death blow punchlines that Bis would have (easily) lost anyway.

        3) Diz actually freed some of his lines

        4) Bis could not even free when he forgot his lines: like the time he said “Bishop Long is your pastor” and then froze for 30 seconds. “C’mon Son!” How can you not know what to rhyme with “pastor” when you’re battling a guy named “Dizaster”?

  • Shit happens, he was once considered one of the best and now people see him fall and begin to diss him. 

    Try putting yourself in his shoes.

  • Big Crimes

    this defeat doesn’t take anything away from what he has accomplished in the past.

    on a side note: proud of what these boys from Toronto have done so far! King of the Dot has come a long way and is constantly reaching new heights. glad to have them out there representing my city.

  • SDS_Overfiend

    Easy to fight Tyson after he lost his will, heart to fight and skills eroded….. had this been in like 96 – 2000. Shit would’nt have been so funny. Battle rapping has change and so must canibus. Dust yourself off and try try again. Just battle again no notepad and you will get he respect you deserve.

    Either something is wrong with Canibus in a Charles Hamilton kind of way. I watched the battle and he looked frozen certain points like he did too many lines of something or popped too many ??? pills. It looked like he took too much Molly, Blow or Adderall XR. 

    I watched the entire battle and the leaked footage definitely made it appear like Canibus didn’t rep, but he actually did ok for a geezer. Dizaster BODIED him… It looked like a Pitbull fighting a Lab.

    It’s a reason why the established acts stay away from battling…

  • TruthSerum

    Watching Canibus slip further down the spiral to madness is entertaining.

    The saddest part is that I really cant tell if this is a rumor or an actual statement, because this is exactly the type of nonsensical paranoid finger pointing I would expect from this guy, he always on some “Its never my fault, everybody else is to blame” type vibe.

    • JusticeB

      If you really think he’s mentally ill then it’s creepy that you find that entertaining.

  • breed500

    Dude is bi polar or something..not to make light of such a serious illness…but WTF!…he sounds like a shell shocked veteran..dude needs medication ASAP..

  • $25506309

    NIGGA………..REALLY? LMAO..YOU MY FRIEND ARE A EVEN MORE OF A FAIL FOR MAKING UP ALL THOSE EXCUSES

  • Canibus should have waited till after the show to get High!

  • Tony Castro

    This has not been proven to be from Canibus, most people are saying its (a hilarious) fake.  The sad thing is he would’ve lost even without the choke. Waiting for the real apology.

    Sorry for what? now his career is really going to go down the drain, just like Sydney Lace’s is now

  • This just hurts! SMH

    I need the WHOLE letter becasue this sh*t dont make no damn sense…or maybe HE just dont make no damn sense. Why does he keep calling himself the “infinite mind” if his infinite mind ran out of rymes and had to whip out a notepad? Stitches in the back of his head, broke up shoulder, agents after him, abandoning cars, Subject 10…WTF yo?

  • Q.

    Bath salt is a helluva drug!

    lmao!!!

  • jsj23

    Let me take my shirt off to let the tattoos breave a bit, now let me flex on you cats.  NO ONE’S CAREER WILL END.  I am in the streets.  NO ONE CARES ABOUT THIS! This type of stuff happens all the time (Mike Tyson/Buster Douglass, Piquao/Bradley, and so on).  The You-Tube video has under 100,000 hits.  Seriously Dizaster has a long way to go before djs and mcs in the streets start talking about and following him.  He is a bedroom mc. Apart from those few California cats behind him, NO ONE CARES ABOUT THIS.  Canibus’ legacy is not affected by this ok!  

    • “Canibus’ legacy is not affected by this” hahahahahahahahhahahahahaahhahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha….. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha…. wait wait wait… hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha…, now that was funny… this dude dont have a legacy he is pathtic!!!!

  • Big Ice Bastardman ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “dinosaurs once ruled the planet, Rome was once a powerhouse.”
    So… Is this his way of telling everyone he is not relevant anymore?

    • DON’T FALL FOR THE ‘RELEVANCY’ TRAP DUKE..THAT’S SUBJECTIVE..

      • Big Ice Bastardman ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        No, I get it, I was just making fun of the way he said it. He made it sound like he was a dinosaur.

  • NoGoBoi

    i hope this foo read the comment sections, if so… homeboi u foul, garbbage and wack azz he!! for pullin out that book lol. 2nd, u lame azz he!! for this long azz ego trippin fake azz apology to whoever wants it lol. u use to be nice but i think it maybe a rap

  • CAPTAIN POP-SH1T AND APOLOGIZE AT IT AGAIN..SMH..
    WELL IN THIS CASE..SELF-DESTRUCTED..

    Dizaster still isn’t going to do nothing. Battle rap won’t sell nobody wants to hear it. THE WHOLE GENRE IS DEAD. I think Kanye finds new forms of expression for the genre that people can connect to but the genre is kind of played out. 

    • agreed. battle rapper dont make it anywhere if they cant write a good song… cause thats what its about..

    • Big Ice Bastardman ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

       I like this stuff more. It is really one person and their creativity. It is representative of the individual, so when I say I am a fan of Dizaster, I’m a fan of him and not him and his writing/production team that lingers around behind the scenes. The best Kanye tracks have been heavily sampled beats with ANOTHER producer working on it as well, and he’s not the only one. So if it’s a toss up between that stuff and battle rap, I’ll take battle rap any day.

    • ddsdavey

       You obviously have no idea about the current scene then or the fact Diz makes good money.You further show your noobness by bringing Kanye up,like he has any relavence in all this?!

  • worst battle ever followed by the worst apology ever lol.. wtf was that.. smh…

    • ddsdavey

       Instead of apologising to all the paying audience etc why not hand back the 12g or at least “…donate it to Haiti”!

      • nah i dont expect him to hand back any money.. im starting to think the fans got thier money worth for the simple fact that they witnessed an epic fail.. i mean if canibus spit all his weak bars and he would of still lost but now we have something to make fun of, so i do think he should give the money back the guy made a complete clown of himself at least he got his money lol but if he wants to donate it he should donate it to brain research so he can figure out why he froze up and did some stupid lame ish

  • Really Canibus?  I mean really?  SMMFH.

    LOL this is the fakest shit ever posted. yall are retarted to think this is real……

  • ddsdavey

    “30 plus pages of infinite rhymes”,erm…then…its…not…infinite,its 30 pages long!?

  • Nick

     Abduction?? Agents??? WHAT?! I almost want to ask what the hell this was all about, but… nah, it’s not worth it. That was the strangest apology I’ve ever heard… and in addition to the J Cole thing… Man, I just don’t know what to make of this. Wait, and if Supernat was there, why wasn’t he more involved with this big PPV battle? Supernatural is the best Freestyler in Hiphop history!

  • Phil

    Canibus is still a beast but it is what it is. He lossed, he pulled out a notepad……………………………………………………………………(Still shocked about that) Everyone should move on and worry about Dizaster and t trex and when they gonna battle.
