Canibus, The Beast, Born Sun 

When: Wed., July 28, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $12

From his love-hate-tolerate relationship with ex-producer Wyclef Jean to a brief stint in the army (at 28, no less) that ended when he was caught smoking his namesake, Canibus has had a tumultuous two-decade career that may make a good movie someday. His latest LP, Melatonin Magik, is too far behind the production curve to change the rap world, but it's laced with lyrical stunners. When Canibus barks "I'm smarter than those fifth graders are" in "Stomp on Ya Brain," it's the sardonic gripe of a frustrated, intelligent man who wonders why the bar is often set so low—and why success eludes him. He'll be in good intellectual company with The Beast, a jazz combo-backed emcee who raps like a college professor because he, um, is one. Also, Born Sun, DJ Porto Con and Social Memory Complex. —Corbie Hill
