Lyrical Law is the eleventh studio album by Canibus released on June 24, 2011 over iTunes. Physical copies were shipped Independently from his website,, starting July 5, 2011. Buyers of the album had a choice of the LP in a sleeve, jewel case, or as an LP Deluxe Package. The Lyrical Law Package included and autographed Lyrical Law CD in jewel case and two bonus disks. The first bonus disk features artists from Spitboss on completely new material or remixes of Melatonin Magik as was intended for the original Lyrical Law album. The third and final disk is an album titled Lyrical Warfare recorded in 1993 as The Heralds of Extreme Metaphors with Webb between Atlanta and Washington DC.

Just after was up and running, fans were able to pre-order the Lyrical Law LP and could also read a letter from Canibus and view the track listing for the album as well. This track listing featured Lullaby of Champions (which was pulled because of the beat sample rights were not approved), HRSHU Attack, and U R A Pig (which were pulled due to squashing of Royce Da 5'9" beef) and were going to be on the physical copy of Lyrical Law. Instead, Canibus replaced these tracks with Rip Vs. Poet Laureate, and Fight With the Champ.
