The 100 Best Hip-Hop One-Hit Wonders

27. Canibus "Second Round KO" (1998)

Producer: Wyclef Jean
Album: Can-I-Bus
Label: Universal Records


After Canibus sneak-dissed LL Cool J on an early version of his song "4, 3, 2, 1," from the Phenomenon LP (1997, Def Jam), L dissed him right back on the same track, then told 'Bis the only way he'd keep him on the song is if he changed his verse. Which he did. Except LL kept the original verse that he spit, which made Canibus look pretty lame. So he dropped "Second Round K.O.," which put the lip-licking rapper/actor in his rightful place. The song peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart, but Canibus had trouble providing a solid follow-up single and the rest of his debut album, Can-I-Bus, was plagued by shoddy production.
