Bizarre Talks Canibus' "Air Strike" Eminem Diss, Working With Yelawolf

Exclusive: D12's funnyman reacts to questioning if Canibus' recent Eminem diss violated the same principles that caused feud with LL Cool J.

Due May 18th, D12 emcee Bizarre's latest album, Friday Night At St. Andrews is a thematic return to a popular Detroit Rap venue, and the carefree, spirited fun it promoted. In addition to local emcees such as King Gordy and Royce Da 5'9", the album will also include Yelawolf, the Alabama artist who Bizarre personally sought out to work with. "Yelawolf, I had heard the song ['I Wish' ] with him and Raekwon, and I heard the song ['Mixing Up The Medicine' ] with him and Juelz [Santana], so I liked his vibe," Bizarre told HipHopDX earlier this month. Bizarre, who spends a lot of time in Georgia, had a chance meeting with the Interscope hopeful. "One day he came by the studio in Atlanta and we ended up just hookin' up, and just doin' a song. What I love about Yelawolf is that no matter who he gets on a song with, he represents the redneck, country, backwoods of Alabama. [Laughs] He's just giving his point-of-view, on a lot of stuff that I didn't really know about the country lifestyle that he informed me on - and I kinda put him up on Detroit. That's what the song is all about, it's called 'To The Left.'" That track joins 18 others in Friday Night At Saint Andrews full tracklisting, posted below.

As a decade-plus veteran, Bizarre's answer about meeting and working with Yelawolf in the ATL led to a question on the importance of working together in person, amidst an Internet/file-share era. "It makes a big difference, man," asserted the former Vh1 Celebreality artist. "Actually, to be honest with you, on [Friday Night At St. Andrews], a lot of the appearances, besides Redman, that were supposed to be done through Pro Tools or were sent [over email] never worked out. I'm a believer in face-to-face [recording] - vibin' at a studio together. [With] D12, [Eminem [won't] let us do that as a group. We still believe in the old tradition of being in the studio together, vibin'." Notable artists on St. Andrews include Tech N9ne and Bonecrusher.

Lastly, Bizarre was asked about the track "Air Strike" (featuring D12 and DZK) from Canibus' early 2010 release Melatonin Magik. As Bizarre had previously revealed that the "diss" was in fact sold from an undisclosed Midwest rapper to Canibus, Biz was asked if the New York emcee violated the same principles that was at the root of his epic feud with LL Cool J. "I honestly thought it hilarious. It was funny," said a nonchalant Bizarre. "Just 'cause we had to re-think, re-trace throughout the lyrics, 'cause [that verse] was actually a guest appearance - a song we did on some dude's album who was from Indiana. It was really hilarious to me. I thought it was quite creative, how he chopped it up, that took some time to make it sound the way he sounded. That's all I think about it. Other than that, I ain't really thought about the record with Canibus."

Beyond just an after-thought update to a top-of-the-decade verbal jab exchange between and Em and 'Bis, Bizarre said that Rap beefs are below his pay-grade. "I'm really chillin', man. I just finished that lil' beef with Haystak, man," said Bizarre. "So I'm really chillin', man, because I just realize, at the end of the day, what a lot of these fans don't know is these rappers don't be seein' each other, man. They live millions of miles away from each other, in different states." He drove in his point further, saying, "A lot of these Rap beefs, they be fraudulent. I'm really about who can make the best music. Who can make something that's meaningful, man. I don't want to make my career based off of who I dissed or who dissed me or whatever. That's wack, man. I'm from Detroit, so we have problems of our own, just in the city alone, just to be talkin' about a rapper that I've never seen before, that might live millions of miles away from me. I think the beef Rap is dead, unless [the parties] try to get together and settle it physically."

  • Rachael Misek

    wtf is the song called To the Left or Down This road?



  • TLD

    yo if you dont like horror music, or that genre, or even know about it, then you dont understand biz and his music. Fans of Twiztid, ICP, King Gordy, Necro, know what im talkin about. Biz is the shit, bar none, and this album is gone be way more dope than gucci maine or any of that radio crap like jay z you hear when u turn on the dial to a radio.

    • Mitchell1

      Yo i like all those artists but you're a little confused. Gucci is crazy and you need to listen to some of his mixtapes. Start yourself off with Gucci Sosa and NO Pad NO Pencil

  • M-Eighty

    Wonderful read. Wasn't Redman on the album?

  • kpanilaryea28

    yo bizarre is wack as fuck we all know that but i feel what hes saying. the beef era is what killed ny hip hop and allowed these dickhead georgia boys to take over hip hop. just make good music and call it a day.

  • Mr. Gimik

    yall jus mad bizzy can talk about raping an avon lady n still sell records with shady haha hate on haters. detroit for life. still runnin the damn game

    • MalcolmEcks

      Sell records? Please the man couldn't sell coke to fiends. He's like a vortex. Bringing the reputation of hip-hop down bit by bit. There's a reason why Cage Kennylz and Necro are respected and this guy isn't.

  • I_Am_Beast

    Why is this dude still rappin? I do find some of his shit to be funny, but really dude you're wasting everyone's time. Go sit with your D12 money and smoke some crack so you can slim up, stop rappin!

  • Rachael5922

    Fraudulent Beef! fraudulent beef, sounds like you got a bad burger at McDonalds!

  • MalcolmEcks

    So why the fuck is Bizarre so afraid of telling us who he idiotically sold the verses to for the Air Strike track? I also bet you that Canibus' album will sell better than Bizarre's album. Bizarre's solo albums are absolute garbage.

    • DoYourResearch

      Bizarre - Hannicap Circus debuted at #12 On the Rap Charts and #48 on Billboard Top 100. "Bizarre has never charted." Do your research, dumbass. They already revealed that they sold the verses to DZK, not knowing what he was going to do with them.

    • MalcolmEcks

      Hey Drucifer Canibus' album at least charted on it's first week. #91 of the Billborad top 100 Hiphop/R&B. Bizarre has never charted. I doubt his next album will.

    • Zion You

      Why give the no-name douchebag shine? Indiana rappers not named Freddie Gibbs best retire. Hope they made money.

    • Drucifer1983

      Cause he doesnt want to give the guy any promotion.......Cause as desperate as that camp is for attention, If Bizzare said "Ya, we sold those verses to so and so", that guy would have a diss song, an interview and an album release date by the time the day was out......... Bizzare sucks anyway..........As far as which one will sell more, Canabis or Bizzare, they'll both be in the same ballpark of 5,000 copies or less first week lol, at least bizzare can ask em for a loan to pay his mortgage tho, Bis must have a side job we dont know about..........I thought the guy at mcdonalds looked familiar,lol

  • aniggnigg


  • ost

    gucci smells like a goat

  • loololoolol

    who honestly gives a fuck about this fat fuck ill battle this chump(and i dont rap)


    No Eminem track? Should do about 2,500 first week.(Double Plastic) At least with a Em feature,there would be a little "Buzz".

  • def

    there is a "web//site" named "sexyblackwhite" for dateing or relationship, black or white singles can go there to find something sexy or beauty online !!!!

  • Spibbs

    To Jake Paine, The "r" in "rap" does not need to be capitalized, it's not a proper noun. Just thought I'd let you know.

  • nigga please

    "I'm really about who can make the best music. Who can make something that's meaningful, man." If I didn't read it myself, I never would've believed that bizarre aka THE WORST RAPPER NOT NAMED GUCCI MANE would've said some shit like that. but considering how off the wall this nigga is, he probably thinks his bars are bullion


    yo DX that pop up is fuckin annoying and noone gives a shit about MIA
