It’s pretty unbelievable, but it’s happening – Canibus and DJ Premier are having beef over some words Premier said in a recent interview. Now here’s the story. A few days after VladTV interview, where DJ Premier talks about Canibus not feeling the Devil’s Pie beat (for those who don’t know, D’Angelo’s track Devil’s Pie was actually meant for Canibus, but he passed up on it), Canibus released a diss track as an answer to Premier (listen track below, download link after the jump) and tells Primo to tell the truth behind that whole Devil’s Pie story.
As Premier’s fansite reports, same day as diss track, Canibus released an open letter to DJ Premier via the internet (read the letter after the jump), begging him not to let magazine writers and journalists frame the pictures wrong and divide the two.
Premier announced just earlier today via twitter that he’ll tell the truth tonight on his show Live at HQ.
Let’s hope all this ends soon on a good note.
UPDATE: DJ Premier tells the truth on LiveFromHQ:
Canibus’ open letter to DJ Premier:
I’m beggin’ you Preem. Don’t let these spineless magazine writers and fake ass journalists frame the pictures wrong and divide us. I ALWAYS treated you with respect and loyalty. Take 5mins and look at the videos of the shows on my reverb page where I big you & Guru up and listen to the interviews where I spoke on what you mean to me …and HIP HOP. If you really felt that way then why did you say that on camera instead of hollerin’ at me? If you can’t understand why I would be confused by your interview with Vladtv then I don’t know what to tell you. I never knew you felt like that fam. Word. They running with it and it’s not a good look. please turn it around for Hip Hop. I been trynna’ pull the stick up for 3 days now. I’m gonna’ crash Preem. -Canibus
