Underlab Studios in conjunction with music partners Reverse Polarity Entertainment went to hang out with Canibus and M-eighty during their show @ Black Sheep Bar. Although a small incident killed any chances of getting interviews with Canibus or M-Eighty, we were still glad to catch the performance to give you a segment many try to imitate (you know your biting) but none can compare. M-Eighty announced that Underlab and Reverse affiliate Chopp Devize will be represented by Sound Records and he will be off to be featured in such albums as M-Eighty's "The Academy". His long awaited solo album, which is still in the works has already Hip Hop Greats as CANIBUS, ROCK (Heltah Skeltah), M-Eighty, Planet Asia. Also rumored to make appearences is Doodle Bug from Digable Planets and more. Keep your eye out for CHOPP DEVIZE. Definatley a lyrical threat to many South Florida MC's.
Canibus, is an American rapper. He is also known as "Can-I-Bus", "The Canibus Man", "Master of the Ceremony", and "Professor Emeritus Rip the Jacker." He is a part of supergroup The HRSMN along with: Killah Priest, Ras Kass, and Kurupt. He is best known for his complex lyricism that incorporates topics such as science and philosophy into poetic wordplay.
He began rhyming in the mid-'90s and by 1995 formed a duo called T.H.E.M. (The Heralds of Extreme Metaphors) with Atlanta rapper Webb (now called C.I., also known as Central Intelligence). While he was with Webb, he took part in a legendary cypher with the Wu Tang Clan family in Buffalo, New York, which earned him respect from the rap veterans. In 1996, T.H.E.M. split and Canibus teamed with businessman Charles Suitt. In 1997, Canibus started earning respect in the hip hop world after making numerous guest appearances with artists including The Lost Boyz, Common, Wyclef Jean, Kurupt, Ras Kass, Heltah Skeltah and The Firm.
Born and raised in the Midwest, M-Eighty gained a great deal of notoriety for being an unbeatable force among the MC battlegrounds. Releasing three solo albums in his years prior to moving to California, including “The Expert Explosive,” Snakes in the Garden of Eighty,” & “The 11th Hour,” these immaculate testaments to rhyme provided M-Eighty with the opportunities to tour and perform with some of the greatest artists in the industry including the Wu-Tang Clan, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Rhymefest, Lil’ Flip, Twista, Jae Millz, Dead Prez, Blackalicious, and many more… Moving to California in 2004 to pursue law school in San Francisco, M-Eighty soon began undertaking A&R work for Dreddy Kruger’s New York based Think Differently Music Group/Wu-Tang making contributions to the labels “Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture” and Bronze Nazareth’s “The Great Migration” releases respectively.
