Can I Keep This Pen?


Can-I-Bus is the debut album by rapper Canibus, released on September 8 1998 through Universal Records. The album was released after the rapper's success with his LL Cool J diss song, "Second Round K.O.", which was included on Can-I-Bus, with additional support from heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson. However, the album received some negative criticism. The beats, created mostly by Wyclef Jean, were criticized for their blandness and unoriginality (with a fair amount of the criticism coming from Canibus), while other listeners were discouraged by Canibus' distinctive lyrics.
