MP3: Canibus – “Merchant of Metaphors” prod. by The ARE With Release Date Approaching For Long Awaited 10th Album, Canibus Releases Latest Single
Canibus treats his fans to another strong release off his latest album C of Tranquility, dropping October 5th on Interdependent Media. The album will feature prduction from DJ Premier, Jake One, The ARE, Scram Jones, Tha Bizness, and D/R Period. The second single, appropriately titled “Merchant of Metaphors,” opens up with strings that conjure up images of opium dens and old Asian merchants. Produced by The ARE, Canibus uses the track to peddle out the barbed lyrics he’s so well known for, all the while conjuring up an intricate tale for the audience.
The emcee paints a picture congruent with the track’s Far East settings, as he raps about sipping tea, meditation, and the separation of mind and body. Canibus’ peaceful surroundings are interrupted by a meeting with rivals who declare that Canibus “Can not save hip-hop,” with the rapper vowing to prove his adversaries wrong. With a lyrical assault so sharp it cuts right through the smoky beat, it sounds like Canibus just may be the man for the job.

Canibus has worked with more than his fair share of top name artists and producers, including Wu-Tang Clan, Def Squad, Wyclef Jean, DJ Premier, and many more. In 1998, his debut, Can-I-Bus, entered the Billboard 200 at #2 and went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in its first year. Over his career as an emcee, he has toured the globe and amassed a great deal attention from fans and critics alike. He recently joined forces with Interdependent Media to release his 10th studio album, C Of Tranquility, a record that highlights his unique style of honest lyricism with an expansive vocabulary. The album will feature production from DJ Premier, Jake One, The ARE, Scram Jones, Tha Bizness, and D/R Period. Canibus has been both a rising star and a fallen soldier, but now is his time. C Of Tranquility will be released on October 5th.
