"if Canibus's "Rip the jacker" isnt a flawless lp tell me why it isnt"


  

          

Canibus gets a lot of flack for a lot of bad music and even worse career descions and deservedly so

I would say he himself has been the #1 hinderance to his own career

its easy to point out his misteps and his terrible beat selection

but w/ "RTJ" he got it right

Ive yet to see the kind of acclaim for this record that I think it deserves

if it isnt flawless lets discuss concrete reasons why it isnt cuz to me its a classic lp in every sense of the word

It's his best LP. 4 mics....nothing more ....nothing less...

not a classic...very good LP with great lyrics

song structures, hooks, etc...

The problem with it is that the verses tend to grate, and the beauty of the music is drowned out. Def a good album, but not Great, or even near it for that matter because of the lack of actual Songs...

btw this is the problem with 99.9% of hip-hop.

thats like goin to KFC to get a burger-KFC just specializes in chicken

thats what he tried to do on the first lp; tone himself down and make songs in the tradtional structure with hopes of radio play

this is Bis doin what he does best the best he can do it

The only flaw is Bis' voice, which can't be helped. The album is incredible in every other way.

I wouldn't rate another Canibus album higher than 3/5 but this one is 5/5 and among the best of the 2000s.

The beats that Stoupe made were perfect for Bis. Nobody else could have pulled it off like he did.

....those type of beats typically don't appeal to me. A little too dramatic and cinematic, but it was a good fit for him.

I don't like the beat anymore because its just a loop. ALC didn't FLIP IT ENOUGH!

lost all respect for stoupe's overly dramatic mechanical production at that point.
no wonder he stayed mega underground

I've known that song word for word for years now, and every once in a while i'll learn something new somewhere and think "dang, that's what Bus was talking about on that song"

and succedded in

it isnt just the fact that hes rhyming so long

he's rhyming so long and its coherent and makes sense without him telling a linear story

that song is an impressive feat that only a few could match
