Discovered by producer El-P, Cannibal Ox comprises the work of two rappers, Vast Aire and Vordul Megilah. Their 2001 album The Cold Vein heralded a new sound in hip hop that still sounds fresh today. It was inevitably derivative of what had passed before, especially Wu-Tang Clan, but the effect was futuristic, rambling and intriguing. The record kicked off with the classic ‘Iron Galaxy’. Have a great week.
