The poet laureate rips into the Slaughterhouse members on the scathing "Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes."
Joe Budden recently hinted that he’s got a diss track up his sleeve aimed at Canibus, tweeting “I promise y’all that if I got high, I would smoke Canibus.” The Queens, New York rapper isn’t taking it lightly, teaming up with Born Sun and releasing a harsh response titled “Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes.”
On the cut, Bus brands Jumpoff Joey as the weakest link in Slaughterhouse. “First things first, man, you fuckin’ with the worst / You betta bring an ice pack when I see you in person / And I’ma bring an arsenal, ask Joe who the fuck he talkin’ to / He the softest nigga in the group!” he raps.
His lyrical assault continues by digging into Budden’s personal life. “Internet snitcher, like a little bitch / Joey low life, living off rice and goat tripe / He boasts on the mic, then he posts on the site / Then exposed his whole life for the dope, for a price / Don’t rep the culture right / Sold his soul for the hype / Got known overnight for niggas fuckin’ his wife / Got bust in the eyesight and still wouldn’t fight!”
While his potshots at Royce Da 5’9” were thinly veiled, he brings his venom to light at the end of his verse. “You a disgrace to Jersey, you suck on the mic / You and 5’9” are like two moist buttwipes / Walkin’ around all uptight,” he continues.
Canibus is currently gearing up for the release of his collaboration LP The Undergods with Keith Murray, and will later release an album as part of the HRSMN super group featuring Kurupt, Ras Kass and Killah Priest. The group collaborated with Slaughterhouse on a track titled "House of Horses."
