Cipha Sounds Presents: The 75 Greatest Tunnel Bangers

72. Canibus "Second Round K.O." (1998)

Producer: Wyclef Jean, Jerry Wonder, Canibus
Album: Can-I-Bus
Label: Universal

Cipha Sounds: "The part that everyone felt when he really shut down LL was when he said, 'The greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th.' And that was the perfect time to drop a Biggie record. Flex would bring that part back and play different Biggie records. Sidebar: That's when battle records kind of started to come back. The LL response, which was over the 'Ain't No Nigga' beat, didn't really catch on because Wyclef was begging Flex not to play it any more because they settled the beef."
