Canibus - Mic-Nificent Lyrics




[Canibus]
Yo, sittin on chrome, sittin on low pro 20 inch firestones
Grippin the road with the wickedest flow, 'Bis is a pro
I zigzag throughout sly loam
Accelerate and decelerate in and out the cones
Poisonous poems travel through walkman headphones
Into your dome Osteoperosis your bones,
Who's the nicest nigga you know in the year two triple-oh
Spit turn to icicles in the mid air and slit your throat
Drain your carcass dry rip out your heart bitch
I write rhymes using your blood for my ink cartridges
Paleoanthropologists, polish the bones
of rapper artist after I dip in my hydrochloric waters
Canibus, with the seams burstin, perfect
Everyday the earth spins I write verses
My soul purpose as a verbalist, is to make my words twist
and connect like letters when they're in cursive

[Chorus: x4]
I'll pray on them, spray on them
First nigga to violate I'll regulate without warning

[Canibus]
Yo, Yo, I'm faster than leopards running across the vast desert
In twenty-two yards per second to catch me to daily delicatessen
With thirty minutes to eat'em, forty minutes to digest 'em
And fifty minutes for it to pass through my intestines
So ask yourself a question - can the Canibus rhyme?
Is a fuckin porcupine half swine?
No time to make up your mind, you wanna run or die?
Clip you while you're running by, trip you up from behind
My rhymes, confuse niggas like somebody try to gang-bang
wearin a blue shirt and red pants,
throwin up signs with their left hand
Standin out on the corner of wetlands
with a confederate flag for a headband
God dam eggplants, niggas gettin me vexed man
Cause I'm surrounded by garbage like Fred Sav
and I can't seem to get away from it
I dreamed that I stabbed Leviathan through the stomach, and ate from it
In my past life I slayed hundreds, and in the life before that
I played trumpets, to warn you that I was comin
There's one billion ways to die, and I already tried
nine-hundred million nine hundred and ninety nine
When I aim and fire my rhymes, like a hundred cannon balls flying
Striking you one at a time, in a parallel line
Why the art of emceein is steady dyin
That nigga Canibus is still in his prime, bust a rhyme

[Chorus: x4]
I'll pray on them, spray on them
First nigga to violate I'll regulate without warning

[Canibus]
Club Dodge, I wrecked that
Limelight, cursed that
Envy, I murdered that
Club SoHo, never heard of that
Wetlands, dried it up
Cheaters, decided to club, fired up
looking for a chicken to tie up
Club New York, I heard it's hot there
beats be rocking there
Too many niggaz be getting stabbed and shot there
Speed, I slowed it down
The Tunnel, they hold it down
Home of the underground, why they always close it down
Century club, the hot shit
House of Blues, I rocked it
One twelve ATL, that's the Dirty South bomb shit
Synagogue, yeah I be there
Caribbean City, roll deep there
Lyricist Lounge, they be some real emcees there
there there [fades out]

  12. whatever 5411

    If you see this commet, that means you have an amazing music taste

  13. Ronald Honore

    People still don't understand canibus. Knowledge was always the new gangster and canibus is one of those artists who supposed to make you pull out a dictionary. Canibus supposed to act angry while pretending to be the hardest gangster<< While getting you to pull out a dictionary, that's how real emcees use to educate the cat in the hat negroes. 2pac also use that psychology on uneducated nigga, hit you with the negative and then spark your brain with the positive.

    Kreymore

    Canibus is number one now. That chart was based on the unique words used of the first 30,000 words used of the first two commercial albums of every artist. Aesop Rock was number one, but Mic Club: The Curriculum left everyone in the dust.

    he has done a lot of tracks with Killah Priest and also Rakim.....

    No, it wouldn't have worked. The level of rhyme skill Bis would have brought would have split the Wu lyrically. How many tracks do you see him and U-God doing?

    Now Canibus need an Unsung it's funny how people say Eminem is untouchable when you have emcee's like this out.

    Bongs Ndimande

    They both didn't impress on ther diss tracks nothing to talk about Bis is a better rapper infinite is Eminem's best project

    Stanley Ishmael Brown

    To be honest "lyrically" there is nothing Eminem has ever done that can ever touch this track alone in terms of lyrics. I used to listen to this track before i went to college back then i didn't really listen to the lyrics. In my mid thirties now and damn the lyrics of this track.Can't think of the words to use to describe them.

    Odious Black

    Maybe they should all rekindle.

    Teh ToasterRoaster OOF Boi

    We rlly should think and be honest, Eminem and Canibus are on the same level.

    Christopher Collins

  65. Julian Dilonez

    Rap music today 2016 is garbage complete garbage. what every rapper needs to do now is look at this Canibus video and start emulating realness in lyrics every rapper has been talking about bitches, drugs and cars for too long enough!!!!

    MCBehemoth

    I don't remember ever giving Bis any undue praise, and most people I've berated were stans who couldn't understand 4+ syllable words. lol

    I wasn't bashing whatever could be considered part of whatever canon "modern music" stands for, I simply noted that Hip-Hop as it is known today is garbage. Since you listen to poetry timed to a beat, I expect you to be more mindful of words. I forgot who you are

    the cave dweller

    I do agree that the tradition values of the genre has been diluted for a mainstream artist for the purpose of appealing to a large audience, but I don't see that as something necessarily negative. Stuff evolves. I've listened to Canibus' older stuff and it sounds very mainstream to me. Once he unfortunately flopped, he turned into the more intellectual and anti-mainstream artist that we know today.

    "Cash rules everything around me"

    Reuben Klandillon

    yo fuck outta here son, kendrick aint even built for washing Cani's clothes. Ab soul, Schoolboy, J roc all ill as fuck but kendrick has little man syndrome. granted he got some nice tracks but he never dropped the outer higher awareness that cani does on the regular! peace tho man, i respect your opinion but to write off canibus cause of his lack of mainstream success is sucker shit. Listen to his new one "time flys, phoenix rise" its straight knockin and he got pete rock on it too son!

    Himaryous

    Someone who interviewed Canibus back in 1998 said the two of them agreed they both (Bis and the interviewer) had Napoleon complex (same thing as little man syndrome) so if you're right about Kenny, he and Canibus have something in common. Anyway, why pit two great conscious rappers against one another?

    FinalFlash2110

    You were discredited the moment you said kendrick lamar was great. He's decent at best

  66. Himaryous

    The only thing I don't like about this song is how it ends. The last line isn't strong and it just sort of ends with a thud. I can't think of any other Bis songs that end that way.

    the cave dweller

    Anyway, in regards to your OP, there is the song "2000 B.C." that ends somewhat abruptly.

    the cave dweller

    yeah i thought of that as well

    Himaryous

    But that's a strong ending. "There be some real MCs there" is not so strong. I think he ends that way because the second to last line is "Lyricist Lounge" so he's saying the real emcees are lyricists, but it's hard to hear that so you lose the impact. It's a great song otherwise tho.

    Michael Knorr

    this was the commercial

    Michael Knorr

    this was the commercial single off of Canibus second album 2000B.C

  67. aaron pryor

    only mcs to outshine bis on a track are diabolic and chino xl

    MCBehemoth

    diabolic only outshined canibus because he spat at 10%

    Jas ProLogik Hall

    Fuck no, where? Only time Bis got schooled was by KGR on Allied Meta
    Forces. Chino spits fast, but that don't mean he can outshine Bis, and
    Diabolic has enough to worry about keeping up with his AOTP brethren and
    affiliates.

    doodiemac100

    Killah Priest, Ras Kass, and Kool G. Rap are the only ones who've outshined Bis. Chino had a phenomenal feature on Cypher of 5 Mics but Bis outclassed him. Diabolic is cold but in comparison he's mid-tier to Bis

    doodiemac100

    @Big L Ay bitch I didn't hear that song you asswipe. Fuck off

  68. Msizi Basil Khumalo

    the best rapper al;ive and his sick computer science mind

  80. Planet X Records

    SICK!!! SUBSCRIBE FOR NEW CANIBUS VERSES PXR!!

  81. Omari Joseph

    @SerbianEaglecccc2 Nas is more of a gangsta rapper, his lyrics are not unique except for a few lines, but we all must remember he wrote the song "No Idea's Original" he is saying no MC is original...
     even Rakim took his cards from someone...
    "No idea's original, there's nothing new under the sun
    It's never what you do, but how it's done
    What you base your happiness around? Material, women, and large paper
    That means you inferior, not major"

    Canibus is very much slept on as well as, AZ, Tech N9ne, Cormega,Raekwon etc...
    Eminem is a mainstream puppet now...
    I couldn't wait to buy MMLP....
    Now i can't say the same...

    All it takes is ill lyrics done a way no one else does it 
    AZ, check
    Canibus, check
    Nas, check
    Tech N9ne, check....
    end of story...

    Omari Joseph

    @Daniel Arrington I don't know you either but I respect people who keep composure and don't argue at every little thing. If people could do that we'd all be able to agree and learn. But I'll keep my dream to myself. Hope you had a great Christmas season and have a great new year.

    Adedamola Odutayo

    A better rapper but not a better lyricists

    Machiavellian Mystique

    @Adedamola Odutayo And that's the point. Brittany Spears outsells the Beattles, but neither fanbase cares. Em understood the formula as Dre gave it to him and made a fortune. Now he stays in his backpack and guess what? Not the same numbers. People buy what scratches their itch and for those of us who want to study more than be entertained, we know where to go...

  87. TheBigManTiny1

    Canibus isn't past his prime. The man is coming out with 10000 bars! This is going to be the craziest thing hip hop has seen in a looooong time. After 10000 bars it'll be his last

  88. Mike NA

    failed is subjective. he grew as a man. he's beyond the mainstream and even was back then. that is what you're considering failure.

  89. XiiX Music

    Even master bus Mainstream is too lyrical for most lol

  90. b juu

    Lyrically!!! Be real, you need to name better MC's to prove Canibus is untouchable, Canibus, not in 6 billion universes could ever think of stepping to Freestyle Fellowships, Myka 9, let alone Aceyalone or any other Freestyle Fellowship member, and even Hieroglyphics has more flavor and style then this fool Canibus's vocabulary could even begin to decribe or understand...let alone Gift of Gab, Psyche Origami, or Haiku d'tat...Just saying if you haven't heard of those 20 year plus veterans, pshh!

    Machiavellian Mystique

    I haven't heard of those 20 year veterans. Could you name some of their best songs so i can stop being ignorant? In the age of mumblr rap i need as much good music as i can get.

  91. A. Ñeko

    THat's funny. An Eminem ad on a Canibus video.

    Ayo I'm faster than leopards runnin across the vast desert at 23 yards per second

  93. Daniel Ajiboye

    that beat is sickly

  94. Derrick Tyson

    You can't just write Canibus off for losing one battle. Everyone has lost at some point, haven't they? Besides, Canibus had nothing to prove, really; Dizaster had EVERYTHING to prove, and he did, and props to him for that. However, to somehow write Canibus off as being one of the greatest lyricists of all-time, all because he lost a battle rap, is ridiculous. Talk to just about anyone and they'll tell you that Canibus is one of the best of all-time, without question.
