    Product Details

    Summary

    Acclaimed and controversial Jamaican-born emcee Cannibus is proud to announce the release of his brand new LP entitled C Of Tranquility. The 15 track album will be available on October 5th from Interdependent Media, the label responsible for releases from Tanya Morgan, Finale, J*DaVeY, Moe Green, K'Naan, and co-founded by Evan "TRUTHLiVE" Phillips.

    C Of Tranquility, Canibus' tenth studio album, features production credits from DJ Premier, Jake One, Scram Jones, The Bizness, J-Zone and Slopfunkdust and proves that he is just as on point now as when he was first hand-picked by Wyclef Jean for the sensational debut LP Can-I-Bus. in 1998. His widely-known lyrical prowess, along with a knack for creating songs that double as personal statements, is even represented in some of the track titles on the release. "Merchant of Metaphors," "Free Words," and "The Messenger's Message" all deliver on their promise of insightful and dexterous wordplay. Having been deemed by several rap magazines as being one of the best lyrical freestyle rappers, Canibus recognizes this record as his opportunity to showcase his skills once again, implying that C Of Tranquility is the culmination of years of practice and progress. "Sometimes life will beat you down just to remind you that you're alive," Canibus said during a 2009 interview with Conspiracy Worldwide Hip-Hop Radio. "There's no better time than the present to try and actualize your dreams."

    Canibus' career dates back to the early 90's, when he managed to make a name for himself by engaging in emcee battles with Wu-Tang Clan and the Def Squad, even before the release of his much-anticipated 1998 debut, Can-I-Bus. The record first appeared on the Billboard 200 at position No. 2, behind Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in its first year. In 2000, he entered into the world of acting, holding a supporting role as "Mo Blak" in the Spike Lee satire Bamboozled. The same year also brought about 2000 B.C., his sophomore follow-up featuring the first collaboration of The HRSMN, a hip-hop supergroup composed of Canibus, Ras Kass, Kurupt, and Wu Tang's Killah Priest. They would next come together on The Horsemen Project - a collection of demos and outtakes originally recorded in 2001 - which was released in 2003, immediately following his critically acclaimed fifth studio album, Rip the Jacker. This past February, Canibus' Melatonin Magik entered in at the #91 spot on the Hip Hop Billboard charts. The single, "Airstrike," was an internet sensation, garnering 1 million downloads in its first week.

    On C Of Tranquility, Canibus is in peak-condition, establishing that nothing can slow him down, not even service in the United States Army or being lauded -prematurely, perhaps - by fans and critics alike as hip-hop's next "Great One." Ultimately, what has made him the rapper - and the man - he is today is his ability to persevere and to look to the future.

    Comment: The original c of tranquility song brougth tearz to my eyes when he says "Our anscertors asked the same question/ and we got no closer than theyve been/ so I pray when/ we dont even need eyes to confirm the poor education we put our faith in".......than I started thinking about the kids in 3rd world countries and my blind uncle who is diabetic and the people who passed away.....in the pass .that fucking bullshit the leaders are trying to do calling some babies "terror babies"...Any way that song has a special feeling to it....if you havent heard it listen to it on you tube and,tell me what you think.....He goes beyond gangstas,pimps,hoes,or racsim.....That might be the greatest verse of all time ....Peace yall

    Comment: Whoa this album surprise the shit out of me. I had gave up on Canibus a while go but he came back with this album. I agree if he had the production he had on this album for the other bullshit albums he came out with in the past I would've never gave up on Canibus. Production and Lyrics are really strong on this album. Canibus sounds really dope on the 50 cent beat. Well worth the mula!!!

    Comment: I can't wait for this album...it's going to be amazing! "Pine Cone Poems" and "Lunar Deluge" are two of my favorite Canibus tracks ever, and "Good Equals Evil" sounds dope. If they offer a deluxe edition with mastered versions of the original beats for "Worthlessness Purpose", "Cingularity Point", "Merchant of Metaphors", and "Golden Terra of Rap" I will be very very happy.
