LL Cool J Reflects On Canibus Beef: “I Think It Was More My Fault”

May 9th, 2023

LL Cool J has admitted that his beef with Canibus was his own fault. He reflected on his feud during a recent episode of the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast. Despite their beef reaching its height back in the 1990s, the two only made amends in 2014.

“With him, I think it was more my fault because I could have addressed him a little differently,” LL said of Canibus. “He wanted to get a tattoo like mine. I could have said, ‘Good luck with that,’ but I didn’t understand that path at that time. I wasn’t there yet mentally so I was like, ‘The fuck you mean you gonna get something like me?’ That shit sounded crazy to me at that time.”

From there, he explained that he was too young for his brain to be fully developed. He continued: “My brain was not developed, I was not developed like that…Now I understand it was a compliment, he was just showing love and, you know, admiration. That’s why I don’t go at him now or try to hurt these dudes. I’m not gonna play that.”

LL Cool J and Canibus began feuding back in the 1990s, trading several diss tracks and subliminal shots. It started with the release of LL Cool J’s “4, 3, 2, 1,” on which Canibus is featured. Canibus had initially wanted to rap, “L, is that a mic on your arm? Let me borrow that,” referencing LL’s tattoo, but the rapper took offense. LL then added in his verse, “The symbol on my arm is off limits to challengers / You hold the rusty sword, I swing the Excalibur.” They eventually squashed the beef on stage at Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the”Christmas In Brooklyn” event.
