Canibus Working On New Album, Rip The Jacker II: Infinity

canibus.jpgIn an exclusive interview with two weeks ago, Canibus revealed the single to his new album, For Whom The Beat Tolls. The song is called “Poet Laureate Infinity,” and ‘Bis claims it’s a 1,000 bar track that is infinite due to the way it’s layered and mixed. Canibus also told during that interview he is working on a sequel to his 2003 album, Rip The Jacker. The album will be called Rip The Jacker II: Infinity, and will follow the formula of “Poet Laureate Infinity” for an entire album. “I got this record I’m working on called Rip The Jacker II: Infinity,” he said. “This record is going to mimic the same format, but it’s going to be for an album. So you are going to get an infinite album. And I don’t know if that’s ever been done, but I’m gonna do it.”

  • King Ben U Beezy !

    I don’t know what the fuck he is talking about. 2000 B.C. was alright though. Maybe download his new shit or somehting.

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    I hope Canibus finally get his just dues. This cat is a rapper’s rapper. Only lyricist can appreciate what he brings to the table. If you lookin’ to go the club to shake your ass or to turn on the radio to listen to the same 15 songs in a row … then Canibus ain’t for you.

  • Pete Porpis

    i like canibus like 5 years ago. 2000 bc was his last good album, all 15 after sucked ass ya dig. he raps about nonsence from a science class. he is on the other end of the spectrum from these garbage rappers now (whicj=h isnt a good thing). re-inlist in the army sucka. ps, who he gonna pretend beef with this album?

  • ned

    Canibus sucks. He should just call it quits and reinlist in the army. He was good on 2000 bc, then put out 10 disgusting records. And he raps with shaq now 2. He blows. I didn’t like chemistry in high school so why should I pay 2 hear an hour of him talking about ridiculous shit.

        I feel ya Tristar. Canibus is my #1 lyricist. His complex wordplay, super metaphors and punchlines, and extensive knowledge of science, math, history, military, etc. cannot be touched. It’s like he said on RTJ:

        “The literal literature ripper/ Painting pictures for intelligent listeners.”

        The common person (majority of the world) hates anything that is challenging to the mind and makes them think. Whether it’s the type of rapper they listen to or the professors they take in college, it’s easy to take that teacher who will literally give you an A, or listen to Soulja Boy.

        To me, there’s a time for all types of music, but if a person constantly listens to crunk and snap and dance, their IQ will be lower than the condition of us black folks. And I’m from DOWN SOUTH! but I call it how it is. Until then…

        DOWN SOUTH!!!

    Bis is without a doubt one of the most naturally gifted lyricists of all time.

    If you dont like the beats, whatever, i dig em. but if you honestly cannot respect the lyricism this man puts into his work then you shouldn’t even be listenin to hip hop. Those who hate on him are either kiss-ass eminem fans, Lil wayne groupies who listen to the radio and think its hip hop, or simply have never listened to the man.

    you want punchlines? Can-I-Bus
    you want battles? 2000 B.C. [Before Can-I-Bus]
    you want knowledge? Rip The Jacker
    you want poetry? For Whom The Beat Tolls

    i can’t wait to see what the will be like! Canibus is the rapper that is still original out there, and apart from that, it is all nothing but lies.
