Cannibal Ox – Mecca and the OX (prod. Pete Rock)

blame it on Shake April 2, 2008

Although this is Vast‘s joint with a feature from Vordul Mega, I couldn’t help myself but say CanOx. You don’t even know how happy I was when I got this email from my man Matt this morning. If you don’t know, CanOX released one of the undergrounds most revered albums in… ever. Cold Vein was and still is my shit. Iron Galaxy anyone? Pigeon? Yes! Add Pete Rock to the mix and you are bound for hot’ness. Vast is dropping a new solo effort on June 24, entitled Dueces Wild. Be sure to cop that!

  • “cannibal o, plus the x, love to sex, microphones…”

    i need this vast aire.

    sucks… sorry. but, what happened to this unit. sounds like amateur night. most artist progress… these two are standing stationary. and, that pete rock beat cant save them. a fond farewell to those who have fallen.

  • I’m gonna agree with the above. This is average at best to the unknowing ear, but because CanOx hit me so hard with the Cold Vein, this comes off as doody. And what’s with the watered down impression of a Cold Vein beat by Pete Rock? Disappointing and painful on so many levels.

    It’s too bad what happened to these guys with Vast running his mouth off about Def Jux and Vordul’s personal problems. This kind of strife usually brings out the best in artists. Not today, though.

    I was feeling vast on the mighty joseph lp. Canox needs strong ass production to carry them, but this beat is average at best, below average even considering who produced it…

  • dub

    uh…..mecca ain’t pete rock, guess all those mushrooms clouded can o’s knowledge of history

  • I was listening to Cold Vein in class today.
    FOR class, I might add.

    Odd coincedence.
