Lyrical Weights: Canibus @ Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace

First, this song proves that hip-hop lyricism doesn’t need a hardcore beat – take out the vocals, and this song is a very light and soft instrumental; fitting for an R&B record or even adult contemporary.
Second, add in the vocals, and this is one of the craziest songs of all times with insane metaphors and similes – I must have heard this song numerous times, and I still get chills and shivers; no one is currently going in like this.  Canbus really took it to the next level on this and has to be the best song of his career.
