Product Description

Although he's come close before, the third time's the charm for Canibus. Rip the Jacker, the final installment of the poetic MC's indie-release trilogy (and his fifth album overall), delivers exactly what his fans have been waiting for. The album does away with the defects that plagued its predecessors, namely sub-par production and half-hearted attempts at commercial viability. Instead of spreading the wealth among a half-dozen mediocre beat makers, Canibus offers Stoupe, of Jedi Mind Tricks fame, full control behind the boards, and that level of commitment makes a world of difference. Stoupe's beats draw from a wide range of influences, meshing well with Canibus's complex imagery. Bis also shuffles the deck a bit here, adding some sophisticated narrative lyrics to his usual arsenal of battle rhymes. Speaking of battle rhymes, check out "Poet Laureate II," which is seven perfect minutes of straight spitting--no hooks and no choruses, the beat changing several times to fit the flow. --Rebecca Levine

Now i won't add much to what people say about this album, simply other then the fact that this really does display everything still good in the hip-hop community. Now i have read other reviews and as for the ones call this album as "backpack" rap and overrated seriously does not understand how good of a lyricist he is. I can tell you who is overrated *ahem* eminem *ahem*, but lets not get into that. The thing is Canibus IS A GENIUS. He raps and talks about subjects the average joe doesn't even knows about. Heck if i was not familiar with the philosophies of Hume and of ilk, or what Moore's Law was, i would simply also would dismiss him of "trying to show how smart he is". The thing is true hip hop heads like him not because he doesn't tlak about bling, money and hoes. Rather because he promotes an element of hip hop that is understated and that is of knowledge. Now i undertsand not everyone listens to music for this kind of fullfillment. For us that do, man nothing gets better then this.

i listen to all types of rap...atmosphere, living legends, biggie, apathy, jedi mind tricks, louis logic, Necro, wu tang, binary star, el p, and so on.
this release has to be the best-if not the greatest release and showmanship of lyrical talent. Canibus turned into a story teller as well as his battle rap self. His deep vocabulary has some listeners pissed off because they can't understand his complex jargon. but to those who understand him- can be left can someone so smart rap like that?
as his masterful wordplay wasn't enough- here comes Stoupe- the enemy of mankind- super producer from Jedi Mind Tricks. even as a instrumental album- this would still be in contention for album of the year. Stoupe uses unique rare samples and flips them. He is a severely under-rated producer like dj Muggs of cypress Hill.
i hope these two get together again.
if any of the words i said does not change your views on this great(probably the best emcee ever) rapper- check this out. being a native of Queens new york- after 9-11- he did all the vocals for this album and joined the army to revenge the deaths of all of his fellow New York people. he did not have any beats yet- Stoupe produced them after. No emcee today would ever leave a successful career to do that. that's love.

I started listening to hip-hop music about 5 years ago and started off listening to the mainstream rappers like eminem, ludacris, etc. As I get older and almost done with college, I'm starting to realize how uneducated and stupid those rappers are. If you listen to their lyrics, you can realize that a 10 year old could write them. A year ago I basically gave up listening to hip-hop because i just couldn't take how stupid the songs were. I have about 100 hip-hop cds that I don't listen to anymore, all about killing people, screwing girls, smoking weed, etc. Yeah, real productive. Well, last year at that time I picked up this album, Rip the Jacker by Canibus, and I finally got the understanding of what hip-hop should really be. He gives views on life, astrology, the fall of other rappers to mainstream success, etc. This music makes you think. Its not shallow, its deep. Since I bought this cd I've bought all of Canibus' albums, and gotten into Jedi Mind Tricks also. This is honestly music that I will still be listening to when I'm 40 years old, while all the other mainstream rap cds are collecting dust.

Canibus was always that ill cat with wack production. Now Canibus hooked up with Stoupe (Enemy of Man Kind) of Jedi Mind Tricks for the production of Rip The Jacker. Combine Canibus and Stuope and you get classic joints. This album would of been a five star if Canibus would be more verstile and have more styles rather then his monotone battle MC and scientific rhyme schemes. Canibus is complex, and sometimes it is very hard to comprehend what he is saying, so lyrically its amazing (if you understand it). The production is perfect. And I don't use the word perfect often. Stuope is one of my favorite Hip Hop producers.
The intro is beautiful and has a complex melody with fat strings. Then comes "Genabis" and that's the track I heard on a mixtape, two months before Rip The Jacker was released. "No Return" is the album's high point, the verse has an Israeli folk song sample, while Canibus rips it with his storytelling talent. "Poet Luariet II" is amazing, Canibus spits for about 7 minutes as the beat changes and becomes more and more interesting. "Spartibus" is the album's first single, and is one of the stand-out tracks on Rip The Jacker. "Showtime at The Gallow" is a light hearted tune with Bis killing the mic. The rest of the album is similar, and with only 11 tracks, the record falls alittle short.
Overall, this is at least 4/5. Short of a classic because of a few weak points like running time, Canibus' verstality, complexity, and his voice. Bis is an underground legond already. He currently serves in the army. The word on the streets is that Jay-Z wants him to sign to Roc-A-Fella. This would be the best thing to happen to Hip Hop right now. A real MC with mainstream attention. The production team at Roc-A-Fella is also amazing. Kanye West and Canibus could make a tight ass album...
