By now you’ve heard what happened. And, by the second you arrive at this here comma, chances are you’re already sick of this post and no longer give a shit about the Canibus catastrophe. But I wanted to voice a couple of last opinions on the matter (my initial thoughts), so here goes…
First. The press release containing this video was from Matt Conway. In the email Matt stated the brief line you see quoted above in the title. It’s priceless. He’s a publicist and his promotion of the video was one-hundred-percent tongue-in-cheek. It’s quite possibly the funniest email to ever find its way to the TECB inbox. Matt, if you read this, cheers to you. If only Verbal and I could cash checks for being smart-asses, too.
Second and lastly. I believe Bis did all right in the opening round. The whole reciting punch-lines from ten-years ago for crowd participation gimmick was actually pretty great. It spoke in a volume that Dizaster’s multi-syllabic, billion-bar-an-hour raps will never, ever fulfill. That said, Dizaster is obviously the clear-cut winner of this battle. The way he prefaced that one line about “putting my own dog to sleep” was perfect and that alone crushed everything Bis had to offer.
The end. Hopefully we’ll never talk of this again.
