Label: Universal Records
Worst Song: "Rip Rock"


Back in '98, Canibus was hip-hop's answer to the shiny suit era—a spitfire MC who made a name for himself by releasing one of the most scatching diss records of all-time ("2nd Round Knockout") and taking shots at LL Cool J. Bottom line: Dude could rap.

Unfortunately, he couldn't make a song to save his life and that became apparent on his debut—a poorly-produced project that made him look more like a first-round bust than rap's Rookie of the Year. On his second album, Canibus would later place the blame squarely on the album's producer, Wyclef Jean, by rhyming, "You mad at the last album, I apologise for it/Yo I can't call it, motherfucking Wyclef spoiled it."
