Canibus New ‘J Clone’ Track Dissing J.Cole

Canibus feels that J.Cole is not properly respecting the rapper, even though he names him as one of his influences in various interviews…

Canibus took to Facebook last weekend to explain why he had beef with J.Cole. He is offended that Cole always shouts him out in interviews as one of his favourite rapper, but only talks about his older material, and never his new stuff which he feels is not supportive.

“Cole might say he does this to pay homage, but in reality, by him playing my older material owned by my former label dating back to 1998, subsequently overlooking my current works and contributions which directly benefit me now, he is treating me less like an artist that has, and continues to contribute, influence, and inspire an even younger generation of MC’s coming up, and more like an artist that has physically passed on already(i.e. Tupac, B.I.G., Big L, Heavy D, Eyeda [sic]): you get the point I’m trying to make,” he wrote. “I can’t help but to think that he is not nearly as sincere or genuine as he would like real hip hop heads to think he is because he speaks about me like I am dead. What he is doing is underhanded and disingenuous and whether it is his idea or not, I don’t agree with his tactic and I have something to say about it.”
