Canibus Releases Statement On Twitter Impostor

Exclusive: The remarks made about Royce Da 5'9, Eminem and Proof did not come from Canibus, but an impostor.

Since mid-March, a person claiming to be emcee Canibus has been tweeting offensive remarks about rappers such as Royce Da 5'9, Eminem, Joe Budden and D12's Proof. As Canibus does not have a verified Twitter account, HipHopDX contacted the emcee's management, who wanted to publicly deny his involvement with the hostile remarks.

In a statement to HipHopDX, a Canibus spokesperson said the following, "The recent comments made towards Royce Da 5'9 were not from Canibus, but rather [an impostor] Twitter account (@poetlaurete8 - which misspells Canibus' own nickname). The comments made about Royce's daughter, his relationship with Eminem and the late Proof do not reflect the feelings of Canibus or anyone else in his camp. 'Bus' is focused on pushing his new Undergods album with Keith Murray that comes out on May 31st and is anxiously waiting for the world to hear it - including its track with Slaughterhouse member Crooked I."
