Believe it or not, Canibus has dropped seven albums since debuting in 1998 with Can-I-Bus. Even though it seems longer than a couple of years, Canibus’ last album Hip-Hop For Sale dropped in November 2005.
Canibus now has announced his new album, For Whom the Beat Tolls, is set to drop in May. No tracklist has been announced but Canbus’ website, CANIBUSONLINE, said that there are 17 new tracks including the “greatest rhyme of all time ‘Poet Laureate Infinity,’” produced by DJ Premier.
According to various fan websites, Canibus has been staying busy working on mixtapes and two other albums, including a sequel to Rip The Jacker. Apparently Canibus has also been working with everyone from one-time mentor to nemesis Wyclef Jean, Nas, MF Doom, Tyrese, Royce Da 5’9”, Mya and a bunch of other folks. We’ll believe it when we see it.
