about the artist

In January 2007, it was announced that Canibus would release new material in 2007 exclusively on his own imprint, Mic Club Music, in a joint venture with Legion Entertainment and distributed via his former major label, Universal Music Group. A pair of mixtapes, titled Nothing to Prove and Nothing to Lose, were slated for release in March 2007, but were eventually scrapped; instead, Canibus decided to use the best material from each mixtape to create a new full-length album entitled For Whom the Beat Tolls. It was originally set for release in May 2007, but was pushed back one month, and currently has a release date of June 5, 2007. Canibus' MySpace page is calling the album "Classic hardcore Canibus in the vein of Mic Club the Curriculum and Rip the Jacker[2]. The album has 16 tracks and includes contributions from Killah Priest and Vinnie Paz, among others; when the record was originally announced in March, there was only one confirmed track - the third installment in Canibus' "Poet Laureate" series, "Poet Laureate Infinity". The track supposedly has 1,000 bars, in the form of five 200 bar verses, and is layered in such a way that "when you mix it and spread it throughout five channels, [you have the ability] to mix the track differently every time." [3] On April 8, 2007, the track was uploaded, by Canibus himself, to a website, where the listener could mix the track differently on a digital mixing board. On April 4, 2007, XXLmag.com released some more information about the interview they did with Canibus two weeks earlier The new release of information spoke mainly on the previously mentioned sequel to Rip the Jacker: "Canibus also told XXLMag.com that 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." Canibus went on to say that "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." [4] In addition, Canibus and Phoenix Orion are working on a sequel to Def Con Zero entitled Def Con V2.0: Ground Zero. It is known that four of the record's tracks have been recorded and edited; Ground Zero itself is slated to be released in 2007. Since both Williams and Phoenix Orion have left Head Trauma, the record is set to be released on the latter rapper's own label, Phocus Entertainment.[5] Canibus has also been confirmed to have signed a deal with Waste Management Records[6], K-Solo's new label, but what influence this will have on Williams' future releases remains unknown. The group The HRSMN is also in the process of finally making an official album, but the date is unknown. According to Killah Priest's HipHopGame.com journal, he mentions the HRSMN a few times. The talks about a new album were mentioned on the May 1, 2006 entry. He said "The Horsemen project is definitely going to come. Right now we just have to get Kurupt. He's been doing the Dogg Pound thing, but it's definitely going to come. We have songs recorded and we have more in store." [7]

Hip Hop isn't dead. It's in the heart of real MC's who do spit with intelligence and passion. Canibus has always been a perfect examlpe of what a true MC is suppose to be. I just have one favor to ask of Rip The Jacker. Please tell all of these fake %#&@$! trapper rappers and ex-hustlers to read a damn book. Having an IQ isn't a bad thing, ya dig.
