This is the running theme of Cannibal Ox’s debut, The Cold Vein. At first glance, it’s easy to get the impression that The Cold Vein is a expression big city cynicism but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Every track is not just a blur of crumbling, post-apocalyptic beats but rather it’s crumbling, post-apocalyptic beats superimposed on top of a bleak sense of optimism. The single greatest aspect of the album is the simple maturity at which the lyricists attack subject matter. Even the most tenured hip hop artists drive at immaturity with lazy, comedic skits and segues and lyrical pussy-chasing. Certainly relatable but not exactly the apex of artistic expression. The Cold Vein divides itself from the rest of the crowd via the two hungry MCs who don’t ignore the violence, drugs and sex just express it in a way that isn’t seen often enough in hip hop.
Cannibal Ox don't have that problem with their debut LP on Def Jux Records, The Cold Vein. Iron Galaxy," which originally appeared in 2000 on a split EP with Company Flow, begins the album. Vast Aire and Vordul rap an abstract refrain, "My shell, mechanical found ghost/ But my ghetto is animal found toast," a taste of the tortured environment they document in their hometown New York City. Vordul grabs the mic and busts for 2xBD minutes, beginning with the end of life and ending with a near-hopeless call for peace.
