Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein


The Cold Vein is the best east coast rap record to come out in the last decade. I have no idea why I haven't gotten around to uploading this one yet. EL-P does the production on this album, and it's easily his finest work. There really isn't a single weak beat to be found here. This album also happens to have some of the strangest universal appeal I have ever witnessed. You could play a Cannibal Ox song for damn near any music enthusiast-- rap fan or otherwise, and they'll enjoy it. Unfortunately these guys called it quits shortly after this record was released.

These guys just recently got back together, last January. Pretty awesome, if you ask me.

Cannibal OX is a sub click of the def Jux click. They never "broke up" Its just one of many many projects from their crew. This album is sick if you dug it, check out Vast Aire
