LL Cool J has a tattoo of a microphone wearing a crown on his arm (representing that he is the self declared king of Hip-Hop). When they (LL, Redman, Method Man, DMX, & Canibus) came into the studio to record the song "4,3,2,1", Canibus noted the tattoo and told LL that he was going to get one similar to it on his arm. LL became furious that Canibus (being so young in the Hip-Hop game) was going to get a tattoo that he had worked years for. A non-violent altercation between the two broke out and they decided it would be best if they record their portions of the song on different days (to prevent further incidents). Canibus, angered by how LL reacted re-wrote his lyrics of the song dissing LL, "I'll snatch your crown off with your head still attached to it" and recorded his portion that day. LL came in later that week and listened to the previously reported portions and heard Canibus' portion of the song. Initially he wanted to remove Canibus from the song but, he decided to send a rebuttal at the end of the song. Listen closely...Hip-Hop is deeper than you think.
