You’re Killin’ Me: Canibus
Damn that wasn’t weird, right? One day I wake up to a J. Clone diss by Canibus. Next day I wake up to an awkward apology video by the same guy. It’s been a few days since, and I’m still scratching my head. ‘Bus how are you going to diss someone for liking you, and why would you diss someone only to apologize a day later. Do you ever think about what you’re doing? Also, please don’t script your apology videos. What was that? Uh uh, don’t answer. You’re killin’ me.
“J. Clone” was a horrible diss track; an embarrassment to Canibus’ career. Why are you going to diss someone for liking you? J. Cole was a huge fan! Hey, @DinaSmiles106 you suck! You too @aquangb. HA! It doesn’t make sense! In the song, he quotes J. Cole saying that “[Canibus] is my favorite rapper of all time”. Like J. Clone says, “We had dreams just to make it up the flagpole, just to find out that our heroes are some assholes”. Ah, Canibus, Canibus, you’re killin’ me.
Then there’s that crappy creepy apology video. I felt like I was getting Herman Cain’d after watching that video. Sexually harassed for those non-political, foreign folks out there. I know, that was a good joke huh? Anyways, wow those stares. Was he also reading a script or something? He had like 5 takes of a damn apology? He sounds all serious too, “I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologize for stepping over the line…I made this video in an effort to turn it around, and man up for my mistake”. Damn Canibus who did you rape? Oh yea, never mind. Who did you kill? Not even Joe Paterno made a video like that. Jeez. Aside from it being creepy, and over the top, that apology was so scripted. Just from the many takes, I can tell that he’s just trying to regain his
cole cool points. He’s not speaking from the heart. Canibus, so just because your track got negative feedback you choose to retract? Stick to your guns bro. What did you think was going to happen, it’s a Cole World right now! You would’ve been better off joining forces with Cole, that would’ve been dope. That apology did nothing to rectify the situation, it only embarrassed you more.
I respected Canibus too. Why did he have to open his mouth? You could say that he was just trying to get attention. But, really? The diss track was horrible, and the apology video was even worse. It was not G. It was not G (clears throat). Not G. It was not G. You’re the champ J, and you didn’t even have to rap one bar. You don’t owe anybody anything either.
Canibus, you’re killin’ me.
