    Cannibal Ox - The ProfileWild Interview

    “I’m a petal from an iron rose/My kung-fu is the iron robe,” Vast Aire raps on “Iron Rose.” From his animated bars to Vordul Mega’s calculated, piercing lyrics, Can Ox proves the Iron Galaxy Clique is back and stronger than ever. As their new album, Blade of the Ronin, continues to spread like an iron eagle, Can Ox proves they can pick up where they left off with their critically-acclaimed debut Cold Vein, an album that continues to garner praise even fourteen years after its release date. While Vast Aire and Vordul Mega purused solo careers, it wasn’t enough for Can Ox fans. There’s something about that IGC chemistry. Sonically, it’s a new time and a new sound for Cannibal Ox. There’s no more spacy El-P-produced bangers like there was on Cold Vein. Instead, the duo enlisted producer Bill Cosmiq to handle the sounds on Blade of the Ronin, with the exception of Black Milk, who produced “Blade: The Art of Ox.” Before heading out to Chicago for a show, Vast Aire takes some time to chop it up with ProfileWild about coming back together with Vordul, why Can Ox is so beloved by fans and the praises only grow larger over time, reflect on Cold Vein, remember Camu Tao, what it’d be if he ran into El-P and Cage today, and drop a dope acapella that you should recognize to close out the interview.
