I'm that voice in the back of LL's head saying
"You gonna let a weed plant do that?" yeah, I like to instigate

from Cannibal Ox – Real Earth Lyrics on Rap Genius


In 1997, LL Cool J was making his new album Phenomenon. During this time, rapper Canibus was buzzing. With features such as:

LL recruited Canibus to be on his new album to be featured on the song 4, 3, 2, 1. In the song, Canibus said

Method where the gods at? Redman, where the Squad at? LL, is that a mic on your arm? Let me borrow that.

LL took offense to this and confronted Canibus about it and told him to re-write his verse.

Vast Aire is responsible for instigating LL’s actions, instead of taking Canibus' verse as a compliment
