That cool moment when you find your original sketch of a thought. This was my original thinking through of the headless ladies down at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg. I was trying to explain my vision to a coworker and... Viola! Thank goodness for looking through random sketchbooks at my parents!

#Canibus vs. #LLCoolJ x #MTV feature circa #2001....
I think i covered this battle at nauseam but this lil MTV feature should put in a lil perspective as they reflect on it a couple yrs later.
Look as i said before, when Canibus dropped 2nd Rd TKO it was a megaton bomb that was landed and exploded!! It was the craziest diss track i ever heard!! Im thinking there is no way LL coming back from this. Plus Canibus was hailed as the next great rap talent out there. Not to mention he had a highly anticipated album coming out.
Now its LLs turn and when his diss track comes out Jack The Ripper Strikes Back, it was pretty darn good too! It was needed for LL to drop that record and come like that. In the meantime Canibus's album flops and sat on shelves. A major disappointment. While LL continues on and does his thing, i mean the streets hailes him as the victor....when the streets say that u cant argue it.
Im still dissapointed wit that Canibus album man, yall have to b there to understand how hyped this man was. He so incredible on the mic at that time. People thought he destroyed LL...but LL surprised everybody even me. But its everything that has happened after that battle that goes into it as well.
