Lyrics comin' at you at supersonic speed (J.J. Fad)
Uh, summa-lumma, dooma-lumma, you assumin' I'm a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you I'm superhuman?
Innovative and I'm made of rubber so that anything you say is ricochetin' off of me and it'll glue to you and
I'm devastating, more than ever demonstrating
How to give a motherfuckin' audience a feeling like it's levitating

Never fading, and I know the haters are forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off, they'll be celebrating
'Cause I know the way to get 'em motivated
I make elevating music, you make elevator music
"Oh, he's too mainstream."
Well, that's what they do when they get jealous, they confuse it

"It's not hip-hop, it's pop,"—'cause I found a hella way to fuse it
With rock, shock rap with Doc
Throw on "Lose Yourself" and make 'em lose it
"I don't know how to make songs like that
I don't know what words to use."

Let me know when it occurs to you
While I'm rippin' any one of these verses that versus you
It's curtains, I'm inadvertently hurtin' you

How many verses I gotta murder to
Prove that if you were half as nice, your songs you could sacrifice virgins too?!

Ugh, school flunky, pill junkie
But look at the accolades these skills brung me

Full of myself, but still hungry
I bully myself 'cause I make me do what I put my mind to
And I'm a million leagues above you
Ill when I speak in tongues, but it's still tongue-in-cheek, fuck you
I'm drunk, so, Satan, take the fucking wheel
I'ma sleep in the front seat

Bumpin' Heavy D and the Boyz, still "Chunky but Funky"
But in my head there's something I can feel tugging and struggling
Angels fight with devils and here's what they want from me

They're askin' me to eliminate some of the women hate
But if you take into consideration the bitter hatred
I have, then you may be a little patient
And more sympathetic to the situation
And understand the discrimination

But fuck it, life's handin' you lemons? Make lemonade then!
But if I can't batter the women
How the fuck am I supposed to bake them a cake then?!

Don't mistake him for Satan; it's a fatal mistake
If you think I need to be overseas and take a vacation
To trip a broad, and make her fall on her face and

Don't be a retard—be a king? Think not
Why be a king when you can be a God?

Em is definitely a top lyricist. I know there are threads about "but he's white", but dude is rap music to the core..his own flow, styling, patterns, creativity, storytelling. He's damn good at this rap thing.

Eminem raps 229 words in 30 seconds. That breaks out to 7.6 words-per-second or 11.3 syllables-per-second which was held the world record for the fastest rap until he broke his own record in 2020 (7 years later) with Godzilla.

Weird, I try to be open minded but...Never found him or his style innovative or even remotely interesting..

Canibus is remembered for "losing" the battle to LL, Em, and the battle rapper he ended up having a meltdown against. That's why.
If you look at it in terms of success & recognition, Eminem makes sense as a comparison and Canibus is absurd. But if you look at in terms of skills & approach, you can make a case for Canibus.

Did you see the thread where Big Daddy Kane said Eminem was the Kobe of hip-hop and I just reupped a 2015 Kobe = Canibus thread within it?

I think the comparison works both ways but it sucks that Canibus isn't even in the conversation.
Loved Canibus but LL & Em both did give him that work. Outside of that, he was always a nasty emcee. I think he was typecast cause he only had one way of making music, which was the “twin pentium chips” way.

Still respected in my book regardless.

Stan only has 300 million.

So I think you have to look at it in terms of his career in the YouTube era because pre-YouTube content apparently doesn't "chart" in the same way.
I'm willing to put Stan in my Top 10 rap songs of all time. It was a great story, great chorus, great lyrics, and it led to the creation of the term "to be a Stan".

He really destroyed himself with the battle with Dizaster. And sent Dizaster into the stratosphere. And exposed himself
as a non freestyler. If he had spit his old hot material, the fans would have maintained some respect for him. He left his
stans with nothing to defend him with. He had a trailer doing pushups. After the battle, he did a stage meetup with LL and
he was fat. :smh:

For Ten Thousand Bars Can-I-Bus should get a grammy
For Infinite composition theory and planning
Status quo antebellum rap music never thanked me
Plus I lost a battle, that's a double whammy
You ain't got no empathy then you ain't understandin' me
Real Hip Hop is channeled through me

It ain't no crime to not be the best
When I was you acted like I wasn't so what you expect?

I peeped the Youtube views. If Canibus vs. Cassidy happen on KOTD, folks will pay to watch. :yes:
Both they careers on life support currently.
