Product Description

Amazon.com

Last time, he was mad at LL Cool J. This time Canibus is just mad, and his animalistic lyrics prove it throughout the 14 tracks that make up 2000 B.C.. "In bare knuckle boxing speed is the object / weaving and dodging with defensive blocking," he says of his lyrical strategy on the title cut. And he sticks to that plan as he rips through tracks laced with strings, classical choirs, pianos, and merciless drums. Canibus loops an answering-machine message for the hook on "Mic-nificent" and trades verses with the legendary Rakim on "I'll Buss 'Em U Punish 'Em." Hip-hop hasn't heard it this raw in a long time. But for those who like it smooth and poppy, 2000 B.C. is way before your time. --Kenji Jasper

I bought this album with relatively low expectations, after reading many average reviews on it. But I must say, this is a much better album than some mags and online reviews make it out to be.
Standouts on here include the title track (in which he goes after Wyclef), the much improved version of "Watch Who You Beef Wit," and the Canibus/Rakim lyrical overload "I'll Buss Em U Punish Em." On "100 Bars," Bus flows nonstop for almost 5 minutes, definitely an accomplishment not many in rap could achieve as smoothly as he did it. And on "Horse Mentality," Can's 4 Horsemen brethren stop by for yet another lyrical joyride.
But the top tracks on this album come back to back at #'s 9 & 10, "Doomsday News" and "Lost @ C." Both feature sick beats and lyrically-viscious flows, sure to make your rewind button hot.
All that being said, Canibus is one dimensional lyrically on this CD--it's all about showin off his battle skills. This can be very impressive, and it is impressive on here, but it does tend to get a little old after a while. There are no tracks like "How Come" anywhere on here. No deep, meaningful lyrics. Even just one or two tracks like that and this album could've been a classic. The beats are far superior to "Can-I-Bus," and his lyrical talent cannot be denied. It's just too bad there wasn't a little more variety.
Definitely a recommended buy though. He proves without a doubt that he's the illest battle MC in the game.

Canibus released his second album in 2000 after a weak debut he redeemed himself in ways, e.g the beats ain't relaxed, the match the animalistic lyrics and whatever. It feautes a few guests Journalist (Life Liquids, Die Slow) the legendary Rakim (I'll Bussem U Punish Em) and Ras Kass, Killah Priest and Kurupt (Horsementality) The lyrics are crazy and some tight skills'In Bare knuckle-boxing/speed is the object/weaving and dodging with de-fensive blocking' on the second track (title track) which is my favorite which shows off some sicklyrical skill. Also '100 bars' is Bi's rapping non-stop for 5 Minutes, no sh**!

Favorite Tracks: 2000 BC, Life Liquids, The C-Quel, I'll Buss em U Punish Em, 100 Bars, Lost @ C

Buy this for REAL hip hop and sick lyrics

I got the last Canibus CD and i was very dissapointed so i was really looking forward to this album, but a friend recommended it to me, so i thought i'd give it a try...and wow this cd have "classic" written all over it. Not only is the appearence of the outside of the cd cool, but the music inside is INCREDIBLE. First of all the lyrics of this cd are some of the best lyrics ever. It isn't one of those cd's you listen to for a week and take out of your cd player, this is like a cd you can listen to for a month and not get bored. The beats on this cd are so much improved from his last cd it's incredible.
Now lets talk about some of the songs, the introduction song of the cd "c-quel" had incredible energy, great lyrics and wow i like it....the main theme of the cd "2000 b.c." is a great song the lyrics and rhymes can't be beat..."Ill Buss Em You Punish Him" is one of the most incredible songs i have ever heard, adding rapper Rakim to this song keeps it tight and the lyrics are too good for my ears...."Horsementality" which features Kurupt (My favorite rapper)is also a good song with featuring artists...all the songs on this cd are incredible and there is too much to say about everything on every song
To sum it up this is a great album that is worth your money trust me

With all the hype preceding his debut release, 1998's Can-I-Bus landed with a very quiet THUD on the rap market. Poor production by Wyclef ruined it, refusing to let Canibus show his more lyrical, and quite frankly, better side. 2000 B.C. displays most of what was left out of Can-I-Bus, with Canibus attacking every weak MC on earth. The album starts out with "The C-Quel", a hard hard-hitting cut with past canibus-rhymes mixed and played simultaniously. The album doesnt let down from there; Mic-Nificent and the title track are hard hitting with powerful lyrics and creative beats. The highlight of the album, though, is when Canibus and Rakin combine on "I'll Buss Em, You Punish Em", two lyrical geniuses exchange battle raps that sound almost scary. Still don't believe in Canibus's talent? Check out "100 Bars", where he tears it up for about 5 minutes, not a simple task for many rappers today. The album is not complete, some songs are weak, but Canibus's tounge-twisting lyrics make up for it. Grab this album, rhymes like these mess with your head.

I can't belive people who give Canibus a 3 or 4, name me someone who is lyrically on the level of Canibus, there is no one out there that comes close, his lyrics are amazing, and this album is no exception. He shows a maturity that is rare in the world of rap, he talks about everything from governments to wack MCs, just a marvel on the MIC that can not be matched, in any way. The most intellectual MC ever. People claim to be MC's listen to Canibus on this album and especially on "MIC CLUB" and "RIP THE JACKER" Masterpieces. Canibus really brings it on this album, I really enjoy every track. A must buy, A MASTERPIECE!
