20 of Canibus’ Most Memorable Verses

Rappers are hardly ever able to recapture their prime’s lyrical genius. Case in point: Canibus.

Fittingly, five days short of the 13-year anniversary (March 24) of “Second Round K.O.,” his venomous diss against LL Cool J, ‘Bus recently resurfaced with a DJ Premier diss, “Tell the Truth.” While there’s enough of the rapper’s tracks to fill up an entire iPod, selects 20 standout verses (in no particular order). —Georgette Cline
