"The next track starts off with a hard hitting beat that makes you nod your head with an energetic and serious demeanor. "Father Author, Poor Pauper" has started playing.

"More than a microphone monster."

Canibus slays this beat with an ultra creative extended metaphor about his position in the hip-hop world and the story of his career. The outcome is a shimmering appearance of transcendence to hip-hop's Mount Olympus. Canibus' gritty voice works magic to an impeccable delivery and intensely infuses his conceptual lyrics into an equally intense beat. If there is any doubt that Canibus loves his artwork after hearing this track then you may need psychological evaluation.

"Behind the rose line, moras and dogma that rhyme
to climb one of three peaks of Mount Hermon during my lifetime."

Canibus assumes you don't miss his references when he rhymes. The above line is much more meaningful when you know what the Rose Line and Mount Hermon are. Canibus references information that passive listeners miss throughout so many of his songs. This layer of depth alone is one of the valued traits that his fans have come to appreciate and paradoxically one of the reasons his work sometimes gets bad reviews."
