Music Review: '2000 B.C. (Before Can-I-Bus)' (2014)

EW's GRADE
D

Details Lead Performance: Canibus; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Canibus spends much of 2000 B.C. (Before Can-I-Bus) making excuses for his poorly received debut, Can-I-Bus, which was produced by the Fugees' Wyclef Jean (''You mad at the last album/ ... I can't call it/Motherf---in' Wyclef spoiled it''). He should've expended the energy crafting better tunes. What stands is a dim set of angry raps over anemic backing tracks. This time, the once-promising rhyme rookie has no one to blame but himself. D
