Canibus - The C-Quel Lyrics

[Overlapped lines from songs in the past]
"I'll battle you on the net, I'll battle you in the flesh
I'll battle you over the phone you can call me collect"

"Verbally viscious, telekenetically gifted,
Took a minute to exhibit that I'm sick with it"

"Have you any idea what I'll do to crews like you
How many niggaz in my career I've ran through"

"At 1000 degrees celsius I make Emcees melt,
Fuck my record label I appear courtesy of myself"

"Canibus is the type to fight for mics,
beatin' niggaz to death and beatin' dead niggaz to life"

"While you niggaz is babblin' my lyrics is travelin'
like a javelin to stab you in the abdomen"

"The intellectual athelete accurately rappin' so rapidly,
Yet he makes perfect sense mathematically"

"I walk the B-Lock withe the G-Lock, C-ocked,
trynna' get the DR-op on the C-ops"

"The Canibus is a animal with a mechanical mandible
comin' to damage you spittin' understandable slang at you"

"Rhymes richocet off the inner walls of my lungs
and go past the tongue faster than bullets come out of guns

"Whenever the head is severed from the human body
with a sharp enough weapon the brain remains conscious for 10 seconds"

"What's the matter with ya'll, I'll spatter ya'll,
against the muthafuckin' wall with these raw lyrics I catapault

"I'll hop into the back seat of a cab and rhyme,
Till the meter says 9, 9, 9, 9!!!"

[Verse 1]
Yea, it's the C-Quel, the C-Quel, Yo!
I'm hardcore from the nappy follicles in my pores
To every single pore in my skull
Hard from my mouth to my jaws
>From my jaws to my torso where my organs are stored
And from my balls in my draws to the floor
I pray to God they hurry up and start the third World War
So I can start World War 4 and murder us all
I don't give a fuck if you rich or you poor
Don't give a fuck if you got ya' picture in the Source of Forbes
I don't give a fuck who won an award
On stage tryna' thank God I'll chop ya' tongue off wit' a sword
Let they blood pour all on the floor
If it ain't a cordless, you gettin' punched in the jaw and hung wit' the cord
I'll leave ya' corpse stiff as a board
Like frozen meat tryna' thaw then bury you under the morge
Gettin' in my way is like jumpin' in front of a car
Breakin' the sound barrier, that means the car is in front of the horn
By the time you hear it blowin', it's too late to respond
By the time you feel it hit chu, I'm gone
I'll send ya' to hell where you belong
So by the time ya' body hits the floor
Ya' spirit won't be in it no more
Who could flow for 4 minutes or more
Without breaks, without mistakes, without flaws
I got millions of styles and I mastered'em all
A metaphor matador fast enough to make the bullcharge and crash in the wall

"Whoever grabs the mic after me'll get booed
Get everything in the club thrown at you and ya' crew"

"I'm the illest nigga alive, watch me prove it,
I'll snatch ya' crown with ya' head still attached to it"

"I battle you the respect, I'll battle you over a blank check
I'll battle you with a gun to my neck"

"Ambushin' emcees, jumpin' out the trees like Vietnamese
in fatigues covered with leaves"

"Next year, you'll be walkin' around the "How Can I Be Down"
conference with a laminate, that said "I Got Shitted-On By Canibus""

"Turn ya' head round gimmie the cheddar,
I'd rather be a lion for a day than a lamb who lives forever"

"Fuck ya'll, you don't impress me and no one can test me,
an emcee so ill I got AIDS scared to catch me"

[Verse 2]
Canibus is what the hardcore niggas is waitin' on
Debatin' on what the fuck is takin' so long
Well I'm here now, verbal ass whippins bout to get shared out
Wack niggas bout to get aired out
Faggit niggas get they ass teared out
Grab a wise man by his goatee and rip his fuckin' beard out
Cold beat a niggas ass like Stout
Then bust a shot in the muthafuckin' courtroom and watch it clear out
A hundred thousand mile warranty
Metaphorically, I'll use a hundred thousand styles and murder you orally
I took a lion on tour wit' me, made him respect authority
Smacked him in the head for trynna' roar at me
Lyrics got my undivided loyalty
And there ain't nothin' on this God damn planet that's worth more to me
In the name of Hip-Hop niggas could corner me
Torture me, slice me then stitch me up like embroidery
Way back before gold-plated male and female
RCA jacks was used for crystal clear playback
I was trynna' blaze ADATS, and if a nigga said my demo was wack?
I'd beat his ass and took my tape back
"Yea nigga" [smack] "What? Yeah nigga take that"
Anybody get outta' line, get they face slapped
Quick fast, the Can-I-Bus'll buss yo' ass
Then I'll bust you wit' a shotgun blast
It's not fun so I don't laugh
To me this rap shit is as serious as, the death of a loved one
You know how you be feelin' sad
That's how I feel when I grab the microphone but niggas don't understand
Canibus is unequivocably the illest killin' machine in the industry
For the 20th century
Trapped in a max security building
Sufferin' from a severe illness called brillance [echoes]

  4. ndleinahaystack

    I remember when I first heard can I bus back in the mid 90's... he was verbally ahead of his time. Blew my mind. Still does. The black community didn't realize what we had in this MC right here. We left him hanging out to dry and embraced that pale ass MC that extorted our artform.

    Danny Brooks

    Canibus is the black version of eminem but to me alot of black people don't listen to eminem and dick ride him as much as white people

    Wilfred "I Tapped Dat Ass" Kensington

    whats race got to do with shit fam? canibus too smart for most people.. but cut the black/white shit fam nobody cares that shit is lame as fuck

    therese fassie

    So we are supposed to embrace someone because of his color?😂😂😂😂😂

    therese fassie

    That pale ass MC has given black rappers opportunity that turned them into's funny how niggas can openly be racist and get away with it

  5. Majnik

    I'll battle you on the net, I'll battle you in the flesh

  15. Damon Byte

    So fucking fire

  16. Palo P

    Getting in my way is like jumping in front of a car breaking the sound barrier - That means the car is in front of the horn.

    By the time you hear it blowing it's too late to respond. By the time you feel it hit you I'm gone.

    I'll send you to hell where you belong, so by the time your body hits the floor your spirit won't be in it no more 😭😭😭😭 Bis!

    Oddusee Media Group

    Cant compete with that. Got to retreat from that.

  17. Brandon B

    13 years old listening to this was the best thing that I've listened to at the time. I knew the lyrics from from to back...back when diskman was still dope. Like if you agree.

  18. Ceez747

    its 2018 and I still bump this album, amazing lirycism. God bless him.

  19. Lookout4the3rdrail

    Youtube Sucks !

    Death Rager

    i ll battle you on the net, i ll battle you in the flesh
    i ll battle you over the phone you can call me collect

    canibus is unequivocally
    the illest killin machine in the industry
    for the 20th century

  21. Lookout4the3rdrail

    Canibus just leaves you Speechless...

  22. Brandon B

    This is what got me into rapping way back in 02/03 I used to convince everybody this guy is untouchable. 2018 still listen to him but thought he would have kept up with the changes of hip hop like fast rapping, style change, flow, etc but what he says blows my mind. I guess you could say he keeps true to his craft.

  23. William Capone

    although that in every video for canibus i see a dizaster/em/LL comment but that just make me liking him more and more, seeing a lot of ppl hatin on him proves he's on of the best mc's

    Brandon B

    Medo Capone It was just a C - Quel to what was going to happen.

    Natas Lynch

    All disaster done was shout him down he showed no poetic skills in that battle Canibus was there to highlight his lyricism and disaster was there to whip the masses into a frenzy by being the loudest but a wise man knows that empty vessels make the most noise :)

  24. MTM

    i hop into the back seat of cab and rhyme, 'till the meter says 9, 9, 9, NINE!

  25. iLLNIGMA


  26. Joe Whitaker

    Jesse Green

    people who think LL had anything on him dont know how Kool G Rap and Rakim and the real 50 cent used to punk his bitch ass lol...and Kool was super tight with Canibus

    duh batman

    I hate when people tell me Bis fell off after the LL beef. His albums later on are insane. One of the best

    Death Rager

  41. Gremlin2123321

    Heatmakerz production

    Juan Victoriano

    I had no idea! This is epic, the might have produced for Canibus before they got with Dipset

    Hip-Hop Homework

    +Gremlin2123321 word! I ain't know either but good lookin' out with the info!!! This track is one of my favorites and the instrumental is outstanding! The recording engineer is a genius 'cause they way he blended the background vocals with the foreground sounds phenomenal. It's such a unique track in the way it sounds like Canibus is rhymin' with himself as a cameo, haha. Sounds weird when you say it out loud tho...rhyming with himself.

    E-Live Da God

    Before the Dipset sound.

  42. Dathe Goose

    Damn this song is purely AWESOME! CAN-I-BUS!

  43. TheArabicJamesBrown
