I’m Pissed

Canibus Rip-'Off' the Jacker II - pre order rip off.

So I was one of the chumps who pre ordered the Rip The Jacker II DVD Package back in May. The money was debited from my PayPal account immediately and canibus himself released various updates regarding the status on the DVD package, that was until around June and since then nothing has been communicated. The email addresses provided now bounceback, his Facebook feed is dead and I am pissed. Its been near enough 7 months since he took my money.

Happy to provide more info etc if you wanna run this.

  • Well 2nd quarter of 2013 is almost over and no signs of a release date. I pre-oredered this over a year ago for $75 or something like that I really don't remember because it's been so long. Canibus ripped us off I guess I should have figured I mean he calls himself rip the jacker. Nice going ripping off what fans you have left and ruining hip hop by ripping off the fans who actually support and purchase the music.

  • I hear you Robert, this is so frustrating. He had a deadline date for pre-orders and a potential release date - that turned out to be complete bullshit and he still fails to update those who have pre-ordered, handing over $75 in the process. No update since he replied to HipHopDX last November.
    I actually don't care about receiving Rip The Jacker II now and just want my money back, but he even refuses to do that.

    HipHopDX, can you 'rip' this guys to shreds - a bit like Dizaster did?! lol

  • Also, bare in mind that by pre-ordering we have paid for the following:

    Autographed Rip The Jacker 10,000 Bars DVD Collection
    1 Red DVD
    1 Blue DVD
    1 Rip The Jacker T-Shirt
    1 C-Logo T-Shirt

    Doubt we will be receiving any of this!
    I also pre-ordered 'For Whom The Beat Tolls' before that was released and that was supposed to have been autographed. CD I received was not autographed.

  • Bombarding this thread now! When I originally pre-ordered, this was why!

    "Physical copies are available only at www.rtjcollection.com. Will not be available in stores or other outlets. Pre-Orders are open until April 30, 2012 . Orders will be pressed, packaged and shipped once pre-orders have been completed."

    This implied that the product was ready! WTF

  • I've been hitting up his facebook for information on the release and everything for over a year now. It seems like he "Jacked" everyones money and just dropped off the internet. No new facebook posts or anything. I actually purchase my music to support the artist so that they continue making the music I like listening to. But after getting ripped off by canibus it has made me hesitant to pre-order anything. So he kind of ruined it for everyone I listen to. If the artists are willing to rip off the fans why the hell should I even buy the music when it's 100x easier to just download it for free? I saw this post earlier and saw that dx updated that it will drop the second quarter of 2013 so I figured I'd give him until then before I posted anything negative. But at this point I lost all hope of ever getting my package or my money back.

    Hi Guys, i also ordered but i have faith.. Canibus is an independent artist and has obviously been going through some shit.. An honest update this time last year would have been that we are over a year away from completion. Noone would have wanted that news so sometimes silence is the best way to keep things moving. He must be certain that those that ordered will be satisfied otherwise he would have said more.. Have faith, the moneys gone now and im one of those that still believe he will come through. I think deep down we all know the project will come out but we label the man a thief to entice him to reach out. Hes no puppet just a sick lyricist.. When the shit drops it will be a monumental moment though few will probably realise. 10000 bars is insane, we purchased because its an unbelievable accomplishment..... Keep the Faith ... peace

    Canibus Fans,

    This has been a repeated pattern by Canibus. I ordered an autograph copy of Mic Club The Curriculum from his "official" website back when it dropped like a decade ago. He took my money and never sent it. After talking with other friends and fans this has become a recurring story. The best advice I can give is contact your credit card company and dispute the charge. Maybe it's too late but it's worth a try. Step two would be to bad mouth this guy to every hip hop head and fan there is. Tell everyone about how he rips off his fans and takes their money without delivering product. Step three is to go download every Canibus song for free and email him and told him you did so. I saw his statement from Nov 2012 about complaining about people downloading his music for free. Good! That's what he deserves. I feel confident he would still be ripping off his fans even if that weren't the case. I was huge Canibus fan for years. I had always supported him and defended him when my friends laughed when his name came up. This guy's a joke now and he deserves where he's at with his life. When I watched the Dizaster battle year I felt bad for him, but now after reading other posts about so many fans being ripped off by this guy I don't feel bad for him anymore. Screw Canibus. "Rip the Jacker" is indeed an appropriate name. "Rip Off His Fans Rappper" would be a better name.

    Sincerely,

    A former Canibus Fan

    Why would a artist would rip off the fans who actually buy music in this day and age where you can download everything. You would think that he would want to keep all the fans who actually buy his music he can. But it's been about a year and a half now and I have lost all hope of ever recieving anything. It's sad because I used to want to support the music I like and buy the music but after this and getting ripped off by soul temple records I download almost everything. It's scammers like this that are ruining it for everyone.

    I honestly hope you guys have something prepared when this release drops.
    Is he still a con-man if album drops and you receive your package late?
    If youre satisfied with the final release, would you come back here and take back all the negativity that you expressed. Truth is that hes only ripping people off if the album never drops at all which through the concept of time is impossible for you to calculate... think about it? A late release doesn't equate to him ripping you off.
    Regarding the earlier albums not getting delivered, there is also a situation that canibus never got payed himself for his lyrical input and hes chasing the cash back himself. He mentioned getting involved with Louie Lombard who was solely responsible for these aspects and he apparantly stole money from Killah Priest too!
    To be honest, i check the net every day for an update and if you dig deep enough you will see that the release is on the horizon. Can a rap artist make up for one lost battle and a late album release by releasing 10000 insane and infinitely interchangeable bars? Lets be honest with each other and accept that the man gets a pass for all his failings if he pulls this off. If you was him, wouldnt you wait until everything was absolutely the best it could be? There wont be a second chance to be the first to do it...... Its a new beginning and canibus is now in control of his legacy as an inventor, we moaned because he didnt prepare for a battle lets allow him to prepare properly for this final release.
    I am pissed about the money but i realise that its a direct contribution to the formation of the product, its not just lining his pockets while he's out buying bargain buckets for his family out near a beach somewhere. He personally said this in an interview i can recall.

    Germaine do your thing!!! make it the best it can be.

    I have given up hope to be honest. I messaged Canibus via the 'almightycanibus' Facebook page and I received a response almost immediately saying that he would provide an update later that day. That was three weeks ago.

    My whole issue here is that he took our money and has not provided a single update in the past year. Yes, if you do some digging, you can find bits of information, but nothing from Canibus himself. He has the time to do these shitty videos for that Almighty album, but doesn't have the time to send out an email update to those that had faith and pre-ordered.

    Time will tell.

  • I'm waiting but not at the end of my patience yet.
    I've never had a problem ordering canibus music/ merchandise and I've been a fan a long time.
    I have heard of situations related to his former manager Louis Lumbar and Baby Grande both of whom robbed his money and violated contract. As a result some fans were directly effected but I must say it wasn't Canibus' doing.
    If anyone can deliver these bars it would be Canibus. Right?
    I don't know what's going on but that's what is wrong here.
    He needs to give us an update for 2014 for sure and it should be from him directly what the plan is.
    The only accountability would be to hip hop itself not to any law suit.
    I do understand your anger I have a little inside too but I still believe in him to deliver his last.

    I love how I pre-ordered this in December 2011, and still haven't received anything at all. Not even a heads-up or update, no, I have to play internet detective instead to find out what's going on.

    If you have to provide an email address upon pre-ordering, then why can't they use their order database to contact everyone with running updates? If Bis and his people are so tech-savvy then why can't they pull off some simple shit like that, or at least keep ONE page for all their info instead of opening up and shutting down one website or profile page after another?

    The email address that my preorder money had been sent to (rtjcontroller@ymail.com) has been out of service for the longest time. I can stay naive and hopeful that the album and special order package will eventually be released, but how can I even trust that they still have my order info? What if I moved residences since then? Who the hell do I contact?

    How is this dude coming out with new albums and new tracks and selling that shit on iTunes and passing sneak-peeks of his material on to YouTubers, all while ignoring his most dedicated fans who were so eager to support him?

    Yeah yeah i get "artistic integrity" and wanting to put out a perfect product and all, but everything surrounding this is just so shady and unprofessional.

    I'll have to consider this my penance for having ever downloaded music off the internet for free, because at this point I'm pretty sure the $74.94 I gave this dude isn't going to get me SHIT.

  • Hmm, the original merchant info had an @ymail account, and I just noticed that I had received another message aside from the order confirmation email (from a @gmail account.

    This cute email from rtjcontroller@gmail.com (sent 12/13/11) says the following:

    "Thank you for your pre-order purchase. For the purpose of ensuring that the new material is not leaked, pre-orders will be open until January 31, at which time we will press, package, and " AND blah blah blah blah.

    What's cute about it? The fact that material WAS leaked, and if none had been, then eeeeveryone would've been asking for refunds a LONG LONG time ago. The leaks are what gave people hope. Pff.

  • Going on about three years now since I ordered it. This is by far the most morally repugnant method of doing business that I have ever witnessed from an artist, and Canibus is (was) my favorite emcee of them all. Really, really abhorrent on all levels. According to his facebook, he's moving on to different projects, without a single reference to RTJ. Unbelievable.

    I've posted a new suggestion to the DX team regarding this issue, I'm hoping for the love of God that they try to reach him for comment. Maybe the possibility of some bad press will be enough to get his attention, he is literally destroying the fanbase he's worked his entire career to build.

  • I’m frustrated
    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
    Canibus took his fans' money and disappeared.


    In the last interview you guys gave with Canibus regarding the postponement of his RTJIII album (which he took pre-order money for and promised to have out by 1/2012) he again promised to have it out by 2012. We have received no news on whether or not the album is even coming out and many fans are angered by his dishonest business decisions and think he simply took the money and ran. I'd love for you guys to get in contact with him for a follow-up article; he's unreachable, he won't give us refunds and hasn't mentioned the record once since the first article appeared. It would be a great chance for him to explain himself and salvage what's left of his fanbase; those who remain deserve an explanation or a refund. This was a $75 purchase that we ordered in 2011 for Christ's sake!

    You guys are great, keep doing what you do.

  • Thanks Mike, hopefully you guys can help us get to the bottom of this. Canibus is my favorite emcee (of all time) and I don't believe that he intentionally set out to wrong anybody, just bit off more than he could chew. But this is hurting his reputation/image/career immensely and that concerns me.

  • Check out his Facebook page (almighty Canibus) he has announced a new album called FAIT ACCOMPLI. Where the hell is the pre order money? Not a single update since you guys at DX tracked him down after my original post.
    As a long term Canibus fan who has bought every bit of material since Uni-4-Orm, I find it insulting that he treats us this way. As far as I am concerned, he has conned $75 out of me for a product that does not exist.

  • He definatly miscalculated something. Whether the battle went down planned or not something threw him for a loop. Something else in his life idk. I'm not making any excuses for him.
    We waited long enough, let's see what happens with this new album and see if new information is revealed.
    I feel like this is important, I feel as if this album wasn't planned But more impromptu . I think he might feel some sort of redemption might be necessary before rtj2 is released.
    Its needs momentum at least a little.

    So the new one I think will reemphasize him lyrically. We get a classic.
    I think then it will come.

    Im with you I paid and wait but I think we still in for a treat.
    If im wrong I'll be back here with you trying to get justice.

  • Agreed, I don't think he intentionally set out to do this but he has taken our money and kept quiet for too long. No update whatsoever, but has time to do shows, work on new material away from RTJ00 and appear in videos.
    I have given up on him as an artist, I only see him as a con man - which hurts as he was my favourite MC of all time.

  • MESSAGE FROM M-EIGHTY

    Canibus will be filming a RTJ00 video update in the 1st week of May while we are busy shooting videos for tracks off the new album "FAIT ACCOMPLI" dropping 6-10-14. RTJ00 is Canibus' final solo project and is currently not completed. When it is completed, everyone who ordered a copy of it will receive their orders.

    I understand your frustrations but at the same time be thankful that Canibus has taken time away from RTJ00 to bring us additional works like ALMIGHTY "The 2nd Coming", "FAIT ACCOMPLI", new 4 HORSEMEN material and much more. When he finishes the album than as Canibus has stated, that will be it.

    If you ordered the project, you will receive the project when it is complete. Though the project began as an independent Canibus' venture, I expressed my interest to Canibus today to work with him on completing the RTJ00 album post "FAIT ACCOMPLI" and ensuring all orders from the fans are met.

    Canibus' most loyal fans who are aware of my involvement in all aspects of Canibus' career post 2007 know that any and all things we have worked on together from the years of touring, album releases, merchandising and order fulfillment and more with myself in the mix have all been delivered as promised and though what will surely be a sad moment for me and Hip-Hop as one of the greatest to ever touch the mic bows out, I look forward to being there with Canibus as he delivers RTJ00 and closes out the final chapter of his career.

    PEACE

    Why does it take this thread for us to get an update? Canibus has only provided one 'forced' update in the past 18 months, how would you feel if you handed over money for a product that was advertised as being ready only for it to be false advertising and to then be ignored for two years. Bis is an intelligent dude, but the way he has acted over the past two years is piss poor and I will not be purchasing further material and putting money in his pocket.

    I sincerely hope that you succeed in getting RTJ00 released, I appreciated that 10,000 bars in no small feat.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond to this thread.

    P.S. Good looking out Andrew Kingsnorth, thanks for the reply :)

  • I ordered this shit hella long ago. I don't even live at the same address anymore so how the hell am I going to get it sent to me when it comes out? This is some dishonest shit, we paid for a very specific product and didn't receive it. That 's theft. If he wanted to wait to release it, that's cool we can wait, but not when he stole my money. That's a whole different thing, Canibus has no honor as a man for this.

  • M-EIGHTY

    I'm not big on posting on internet forums so this will be my last post here and hopefully that puts you all at ease:

    1, You ordered the album and moved? -Send a message on facebook to ALMIGHTY CANIBUS with your new address and when the album is released your order will be filled.

    2. Free copy of Bis' new album Fait Accompli? No. Fait Accompli is an RBC Records release and RTJ00 is an independent Canibus release.

    3. You feel robbed? Save it. You;ll get your product when its released. Canibus has delivered for the fans 1000% of the time and if I am now involved in this project I will not be rushing this mans final piece of work.

    Thanks

    What hasn't been mentioned is that fans were ripped off in the past. Canibus blamed it on Micclub when people didn't get their merchandise ordered through micclub.net, said he was going to fix it but to this day people still haven't gotten their orders.

    The Sharpshooter album and the Born Sun album never came either. Both sold through Canibus own personal website run by him and the only interest in the project came from the association with Canibus. No explanation was given either. Obviously there is a pattern going all the way back to roughly 2002 and the only connection is Canibus. So no he hasn't delivered 100% of the time and you know that M-EIGHTY!

    Why would someone sell pre-orders then stop selling the product all together? Doesn't make sense. We keep hearing the album is coming but never when. We were promised music from it and it never came either. M-EIGHTY if this has nothing to do with you then why are you involved other than to passify the fans so you can sell his latest project? If this is Canibus product then you don't know what's going to happen only what he promised. Stop trying to shut us up so this won't affect the new product you want to sell us. Because when it all goes down you will say you had nothing to do with it. Just as you've been saying up until the new album was announced. You were smart for not putting your personal reputation on the line over this but now you have to shelter some of the blame.

    Don't support any new Canibus project until we get a release date for this, the music we were promised from it, a refund for Sharpshooter and Born Sun's album. It don't matter what label it's going through it's still a Canibus project and Canibus is the one who thinks he can get away with fraud.

  • I’m a now a Bis Hater
    1
    The attitude from M-Eighty and Canibus (seeing as he represents Bis) appears to be that we should just shut up and accept that we won’t be receiving RTJ00 any time soon and be grateful that he is releasing new material. Yes, new material from an favourite artist is great, but when he has taken $75 for an album that he has not delivered and then expects those fans to then go and purchase the new material is taking the piss.

    I pre-ordered RTJ00 back in April 2012 when the advertisement clearly stated that "once pre-orders were completed, the product would be pressed and shipped" - that's the only reason that I pre-ordered, that advertisement implied that the product was almost ready and would be shipped after April 31st 2012. Had I known that 2 years later I would be bitching on the net about my favourite MC and the fact he took my money for a product that did not exist at that time, I would never have handed my cash over.
    Other than some forced updates, there has been nothing, the email addresses bounce back, Canibus went quiet, he then made the promise to release RTJ00 during the 2nd quarter of 2013. It’s now the second quarter of 2014.

    Oh wait, M-Eighty says that bis provided a video update and something on Conspiracy radio - how was I to know those updates were out? He could have emailed the pre-order fans with that information, but wait, he wouldn't get anything out of that would he? Funny how I received an email update on the 14th May 2012 with a small bit of RTJ00 information, but the main body of the message was advertising the Dizaster battle and the official KOTD Canibus Merchandise and where to order it from!

    I'm done with Bis, didn't BUY the Almighty 2 album, won't be BUYING Fait Accompli or anything else he releases.

  • I'm glad I didn't preorder this shit. I was always a fan of Bis, but he has lost my respect completely. I don't even wanna bump his old shit because I hate him so much now. Fuck you Bis and fuck you M-Eighty. You shit on the few fans you have left, Canibus..the fucks wrong with you?

  • i think its funny that you guys are complaining about 10,000 bars which is 9 and a half hours of music, that is like 9 and a half albums, yeah i am pissed it didnt come out on time, but really i never expected 10,000 bars to be out in a couple of months, think about how long it would take an artist to release 9 albums and 1 EP?

  • Anyone who has become impatient for Rip the Jacker 2 ∞ .....I am not sure you comprehend what you were pre-ordering, and you obviously do not fully appreciate the, literally infinite, contribution that Canibus is going to unleash for fans and Hip-Hop itself.

    Please make an infinite album...QUICKER. Get the fuck out of here, pretending you know what it takes to undertake a project of this magnitude.

    Can he bus? You fucking know he can.
    • You are obviously completely ignorant of the situation. He took our literal money for a specific product on a specific date. We are pissed because money is money and business is business. I never signed a contract and agreed to giving him a loan, interest free, with no clue of when it would be repaid. That is a completely separate issue than how long it does or doesn't take to make an infinite album. Extremely bad business and flat out disrespect is what we are talking about here. He should have manned up and returned the money, then apologized and stated that greatness would take longer than previously expected. Then we would have respected that. Instead he's playing games with our hard earned money, any real man would be pissed about that.

  • Hey Davey Dipshit,

    If we were expected to wait infinitely long for an infinite album, then dude shouldn't have claimed one release date, then another, then another, then another, then another. If people who pre-ordered were actually valued customers, then dude wouldn't have leaked material to the web for free again, and again, and again, and again.

    Or at the very fucking least, since all web orders have an email address and other contact info attached, folks who pre-ordered should have been given some sort of courtesy heads-up directly. Nahh, we have to track dude down and bitch about it on stupid websites like this one.

    Is he an ill lyricist? Yeah. Is he a competent businessman? Doesn't seem like it. If he was then he'd probably be able to keep one official domain name for more than a year and a half stretch before shutting shit down and moving on to a different website with different business partners.

  • I'm going to use a very crude analogy to respond to what shouldn't be dignified with a response. (Yes, that proves I have far excess time on my hands at this particular moment.)

    If you've ever been psyched about a highly anticipated Film/Video Game, there is bound to have been an instance in which either: it was delayed from it's original "official release date", year after year; or it was rushed through production just to get it on the shelves, failing to provide the level of production it certainly had the potential for and/or greedily cut the budget of the project (ultimately sabotaging the quality of the final, released, product).

    It isn't a standard LP, by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it simply an audio CD to begin with. The last official piece of art released by Can-i-bus, with a concept of an infinite sequence of rhymes (with software, video etc.), in my personal opinion, should not have been released yet and I believe will take the utmost caution in releasing his last official work with the same regrettable haste that he felt with his first album (even though the lyrical composition was on point, that is an entirely different matter).

    Bitch, whine, and possess as many qualms regarding the subject as you wish. I am going to patiently await the arrival of this groundbreaking piece of art; something of which (in any scenario with any artist and their art, for that matter) has absolutely no right to be demanded by the consumer.

    Do not pre-order something if you do not wish to wait for it. I've been in the same position—and although disappointed I did not receive it on many alleged official release dates—I would always be far greater let down if I bought a product unfit for release (regardless if I pre-ordered or not). Any other example, remotely comparable, is far from possessing any quality or characteristic that infinite in any aspect.

    Your entire argument that I didn't assess, is that he didn't personally send you a thank you note for supporting his commitment to creating a product you are so highly anticipating that you would pay a premium price based on the quality of conceptual composition; and I do not blame you for making that decision, but don't nerdrage and cry wolf on the internet because he is still perfecting what will be an infinite testament to music, art, and hip-hop in a way no human-being has before.

    Calm down, man. No one is scoffing at the magnitude of this project or Canibus' ability to deliver.

    But the business tactics and promises that were used to get money from the fans up front were indisputably dishonest. If Bis needed money to fund a "work in progress" he should have told us that. Why lie to hundreds of people who support your vision and then make no attempt to update them on the situation? He had (and still has) the email address of every person who ordered the album and not once has he reached out; instead we have to hunt down these very vague updates on our own, which we should not have to do.

    I don't think anyone here is upset at the fact that the product was not shipped back in 2012 man. People are upset because they have no idea what's going on with this and would like a refund if it's not coming out any time soon; refunds they are entitled to and that Canibus has refused to give them. Also, Canibus is working on new albums now, according to his facebook, and trying to get us to buy/pre-order those. So not only is he now trying to get more money out of us, he also appears to have put RTJ on hold indefinitely.

    He's a great emcee but jesus man when it comes to public relations you'd think the dude had a suicidal death wish.

  • I paid $75 too but I don't really care, I just downloaded Fait Accompli and it's one of the best albums I have ever heard, Canibus is still the greatest MC. I'll pay for Fait Accompli when I received my RTJ2 !

  • Rip OFF The Jacker 2 lmfao MAYBE, after 2015 is done then yes this will be true

    Lets start with Facts in Last 3 years.

    "FUCK YOU PAY ME, OR DONATE IT TO HAITI"

    2012
    So your too good to make a Kickstarter, you go STEAL everyone's 75 Dollars from all your fans.. Then you promote a Battle that you put no Effort Into.

    2013
    Then you Don't talk to anybody for a year straight not even fans. Guess your redoing RTJ2 so it can shit on the fans like MM or what?

    2014
    Then u go come out with another fucking album Fait Accompli Expecting someone to buy that shit?! Nah it dont work like that. Nobody is motivated for Fait Accompli. its not even worth the Download.

    2015
    BIs is probably somewhere smoking our money away not giving a shit about the people that Purchased it. If he wasn't so busy thinking about the Apocalypse maybe we would have RTJ2. Plus Anybody can Code a Audio Mixer with 10 Channels it doesn't take this long if this is the hold up..
