Cannibal Ox - Keith Masters, special guests Double A.B., Kenyattah Black, and I Realz This event is all ages Cannibal OxMySpaceFacebookLinksCAN*NI*BAL (noun): one that eats the flesh of its own kind OX (noun): a slang term used to describe a sharp blade Cannibal Ox, a pair of MC's that devour their own kind with words as sharp as blades. Harlem, NY natives Vordul Mega and Vast Aire bring to you their highly anticipated myspace page!!! "The Cold Vein" year; 2001 Cannibal Ox is the supa-underground hip hop group getting intense responses from heads and journalists alike...saying that it is hip hop that is street, reality based and lyricaly advanced at the same time ... delivered with a sincerity, intelligence and skill level that may have never been heard in this way. "The Cold Vein" is already elliciting responses toting it is a potentially seminal album in the same way (not stylelisticaly but in spirit ) as the beginning days of Wu-Tang, De La Soul, Company Flow, Ice Cube circa "America's Most Wanted", Dr. Octagon and so on. El-P of Company Flow fame provides a diverse collection of beats that range from the slow funky "Pain Kill", to the guitar laced "Pigeon", and then in one swift step hits you with the high energy "Vein". the beats bring a heroic futuristic element to all these songs resulting in some of the most epic and interesting production out and further reitterates why he is celebrated as one of the most innovative and creative producers of this day and age. this is the first non co flow full length he's ever produced. Consistent coverage of them in press ...The Atoms Family, have been making noise in the NYC underground hip hop scene since 1995 [and before!!}In the short time they have performed at every major hip hop venue in NYC with 1998 marking the year that they would travel beyond the NY border to take the show on the road to Europe with Company Flow, Mr. Lif, and BMS on the "Little Johnny Tour". Upon return from Europe, they showed no signs of slowing down their live performances, continuing to do shows in Chicago, Boston, New York, and other cities across the US. Their debut on wax came in 1999 on the CP Records compilation "Persecution of Hip Hop" on which Vast Aire delivered the song "Adversity Strikes" which many have declared a 'classic' and as a result has appeared on countless mix-tapes over the past 2 years. Vast Aire has also made a few guest appearances on other releases in the past few years, including but not limited to Aesop Rock's LP "Float" (Mush Records). The a-side Iron Galaxy on the Company Flow/Cannibal Ox split is a visual ride through life in the city of NY where Vast delivers clever wordplay with lines like "you were a stillborn baby, mother didn't want you but you were still born" and Vordul provides listeners with such vivid descriptions of life in the city that after one listen, you feel as if you experienced it yourself.
