The Cold Vein (Deluxe Edition) (Explicit)
by Cannibal Ox
Released: May 2001
Label: I Hiphop
Produced entirely by sonic adventurer El-P, Cann Ox's debut album rocks some of the fiercest, weirdest beats ever laid to wax. Densely layered, post-apocalyptic soundscapes lay the foundation for wordy but rowdy mic attacks from Vast and Vordul, exploring the science of life in the city. Unlike any other LP before or since, The Cold Vein is uncompromisingly ill.
