Throwback Thursday – Can-I-Bus

Before the beef with Eminem, before the army but after dissing L.L., Can-I-Bus was THAT NIGGA. He was a lyrical monster and with Wyclef he gained notoriety. If Canibus could have just taken ‘Clef’s beats for singles then bodied other things he could have been a staple in hip hop. Dude couldn’t shut his mouth spawning the beef with L.L. Cool J. Many hip hop heads thought “The Ripper Strikes Back” was a career finisher (Beanie Sigel “I’ll rock your bells like L. I ain’t canibus nigga”) but 2nd round K.O. should have been Uncle L’s Ether. No matter what Jay-z came out with, even if he sonned Nas by being his boss, Ether will forever be that record that bodied Jay-z. 2nd round K.O. bodied L.L. Cool J so much that every point uttered had a rebuttal on “The Ripper Strikes Back”. If “The Ripper Strikes Back” was such a powerful diss record why did L.L. dedicate 2 tracks and countless lines in G.O.A.T. to tarnishing Can-I-Bus? Shouldn’t the effort from a bigger name on a deadlier track been enough? Exactly. Download the track at the link and see the bonus after the jump.

Ustream Freestyle – Wale

So like everybody else Wale jumped on Ustream. Unlike everybody else Wale takes an original beat from a random fan and spits some bars. Written or not this is talent. Attention Deficit is still in stores and for Wales “consumer/marketing demographic” it is still available on itunes.

Money on My Mind – Lil Wayne

Take a peek into the past with Worldstar. I don’t know the politics of this not coming out but what a world of difference between Wayne’s video’s then and his video’s now. Check the Curren$y cameo as well. Weird to see Wayne with less tat’s and obnoxiously large jewelry. Pardon the Rebirth release date. We know Cash Money pushes his projects back.

Chad Ochocinco deserves his own VH1 celeb-reality show. Check out the flier to his mansion party after the jump. If your in miami next week with nothing to do hit Chad’s house up.

Haitian Relief

The 12th of January marked a horrific day in Haitian history. A 7.0 earthquake rocked the left side of the Island of Hispaniola. As a result tens of thousands of people were killed and injured while more were left homeless. The Smoking Gun did an expose of Wyclef’s Yele foundation but Wyclef was the first person to respond to Haiti’s need. Not the U.N. not the Red Cross not even “the leader of the free world”. News outlets can conjure up what they may but the fact remains that in just one week Wyclef raised 2 million dollars via text message. Its not too late to text yele to 501501 to contribute $5 to the haitian relief effots. As a Haitian-American I thank everyone for their prayers, concern and donations. Our hearts go out to all the victims in Haiti and the families effected.
