Cannibal Ox announced their return to the rap game at the end of January, with a new album Blade of the Ronin due out in March.
While the announcement that Cannibal Ox would finally release their sophomore album in 2015 was nothing short of thrilling, the fact that El-P would not be behind the boards was a bit worrying.
After devoting a few of the most recent editions of "Samples Of The Week" to break down sample-heavy albums by J. Cole, Lupe Fiasco. Joey Bada$$ and Fabolous, we return to the usual format this week.
Recently we got word that Harlem rap duo Cannibal Ox (Vast Aire and Vordul Mega) would be making a return to the game with the announcement of a new album. Blade of the Ronin will be their sophomore album, after dropping their debut back in 2001.
Cannibal Ox released their debut album, The Cold Vein, in 2001, which quickly gained critical praise, and later became one of the most celebrated rap albums of the decade.
After more than a decade-long hiatus, the groundbreaking Harlem duo Cannibal Ox have returned. They're dropping a maxi-single called Gotham (Ox City) on April 16th, and "Gases In Hell (Inhale)" one of three tracks included on it.
Listen to Thor's Hammer, the latest track from Vast Aire, featuring Raekwon & Vordul Mega. The cut dropped on Wednesday, June 1st, 2011. Vast Aire's future brightens with every new release, and Thor's Hammer certainly isn't an exception.
