'97 mentality

"do hard jigsaw puzzles with strong jaw muscles"


Exhibit M

Street Census has compiled Canibus' top ten verses of 1997, his breakout year. Though he's still worth a listen from time to time, he seemed to pay more attention to the beats back then, clipping his verses and coming across a bit like Big L, rather than letting his paranoid conspiracy theories and pseudo science spill all over the track. Maybe it's just because the beats are better - most of them seem to be dark, jazzy DITC-style numbers.

Anyhow, has anybody had this good a run of guest spots and mixtape appearances since 1997?
