The Four Horsemen collaborators have had quite a year: Kurupt moved back to Tha Row. Killah Priest dropped a highly slept-on new album. Ras Kass was arrested after being on the run. And Canibus got dog tags and joined the US Army.
Like the others, getting in touch with Canibus these days is not easy. A devoted soldier, the artist divides his time between those two roles. With an already critically hyped album about to drop, 'Bis and AllHipHop got together. The burning questions still unanswered from Spring needed clearing up. Also, we wanted to hear about Rip The Jacker from the mad scientist creator himself. Both topics are covered.
In the late 90's when Canibus was jack hammering verses alongside The Lost Boyz. Common, and others, we knew he was serious. Although he no longer sits on a major label, or parlays with the who's who in hip-hop, this interview is dangerous proof that Rip the Jacker himself, is still serious.
AllHipHop.com: Most obviously, what prompted you to join the service this Spring? The timing was certainly a focal point.
Canibus: I couldn't begin to sum up the events of why I joined the service in this interview and if for some reason I did decide to explain every detail then I'd be surprised if anyone understood my reasoning anyways. There are a variety of reasons that I decided to be in the U.S. Military. Anyone who requires more of an explanation, can go through boot camp, and I'll tell them when we get deployed to the desert.
