After emerging with 1998’s Can-I-Bus, Canibus has consistently churned out project after project over the past 20 years. Of course, 2018 proves to be no exception.
Following the two-part Full Spectrum Dominance EP series — which he released earlier this year — the O.G. Bronx rapper has returned with a collaborative effort featuring Marty McKay. Titled Matrix Theory (Part 1) EP, the project is the first installment in their five-part journey.
“Matrix Theory (Part 1) is the culmination of a lot of deep thought, contemplation and action,” McKay tells HipHopDX. “It’s an honor to work with my friend Canibus and get to see how powerful he is as both a rhyme master and a person who understands the hidden secrets of how what most people think is reality, firsthand.
“Most importantly, this series isn’t business as usual. It’s a drive to change lives by waking people up. This EP series was formulated over a three-year period and designed to shatter the false reality that keeps us trapped.”

Canibus adds, “Matrix Theory is not to be skipped over, or listened to casually. This series is a full force effort at a mass psychic prison break. Marty McKay is the perfect choice as a partner to take on the system of lies.”
