Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
As I promised to provide something for EVERYONE, here is one of my favorite hip hip records. This Cannibal Ox record was the very first album released under El-P's Definitive Jux label, known now for artists like Aesop Rock, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, and RJD2. If you are at all into hip hop, this record should set a new standard by which to compare. I think El-P must've gave these dudes all his best beats to put on this record, because from the opening track, the head-noddic beats just keep coming. This is already considered an essential for true rap heads, and a milestone for hip hop, so don't get caught witcha funk down. GRAB THIS FUCKING RECORD!
