On a song called "The Danger of Judah" and features some brief exchanges with Professor Griff. The third verse addresses Canibus' thoughts on the Beef experience.
"Put my name on the black-list, 'cause I don't dick-ride nobody in the industry / Where's the fuckin' empathy? / I been through so much treachery / Most of the best emcees disrespectin' me / Tried to get the best of me / Never tried to rescue me / Or help me with the recipe / What do they expect from me? / Stressin' me / Questionin' me to address the beef / I rep Hip Hop, Hip Hop don't rep me / I never got a penny off that Beef DVD / You mean all that money went to QD3? / I should have slammed the door in his face / If I was a different nigga, I'da been caught a criminal case / The best word to describe what you do to Hip Hop is 'rape' / 'Cause you don't care about Hip Hop's fate / You sit around the tables, and say Grace / Eatin' steak / While you live like kings and treat kings like apes / Owe Michael Jackson money, and still on the take / And Tevin Campbell's money, the greed is so great / You probably dance around the mansion, like Circ De Soleil / Everything is paid for, you don't have to pro-rate / I ain't hatin', I'm not hatin' / I'm just sayin' / You makin' money off the next man's struggle, right, and can't pay him / Then make millions off them Beef DVDs / But didn't pay K-Solo or Eazy E / It's called Blaxploitation / Another one of Canibus' paranoid statements / That's why I'm famous / I'm just tryin' to tell niggas how the game is / Beef to Hip Hop is just aimless entertainment..."
