Hours after releasing a diss track aimed at J. Cole, Canibus is apologizing.
“I seen thousands and thousands of comments about this J.Cole track and all of the negativity it’s stirring up,” said Canibus in a video apology that hit the net today (December 12). “After 48 hours of it, I feel confident enough to say that it’s unanimous; hip-hop has spoken up, loud and clear, it’s a Cole World right now and you’re a reigning champ J. [Cole]. I take full responsibility for my actions and I apologize for stepping over the line.
“It comes off as tacky and unsophisticated and it’s just not G,” he continued. “I love hip-hop too much to further justify my selfish behavior. I made this video in an effort to turn around and man up for my mistake.”
The apology comes after Cannibus released a track called, “J. Clone” aimed at Cole over the weekend. Apparently, Canibus took offense to a series of Cole interviews in which J. Cole was actually saying he was a big fan of Canibus. ‘Bus took the accolades as if Cole was insinuating Canibus didn’t matter to hip-hop anymore. But, he’s since had a change of heart.
“You said you were a fan of mine at one time, you bigged me up on many occasions, you don’t owe me nothing Cole,” Canibus rounded out the video saying. “I was out of line for what I did and I’m sorry for creating a fiasco at a time when hip-hop really needs someone like you to look up to. You got my support. I just hope the hip-hop community can get pass this quickly and go back to what satisfies them and makes them happy. I’m not a hater I just went too far and I hope hip-hop can forgive me for my foolishness. I’m going to go sit my old ass down somewhere now. Happy Holidays….It’s a Cole World, kid.” –Jakinder Singh
