Â Fourteen years after earning their status as luminaries of underground hip-hop, Cannibal Ox is set to release the highly-anticipated sophomore albumÂ Blade of the Ronin. Serving as the follow-up to the duo’s acclaimed debut album,Â Blade of the Ronin is the embodiment of Vast and Vordul’s years of creation and properly serves to provide listeners with the grimy yet futuristic soundscape that they’ve come to expect from Cannibal Ox.
Today, Cannibal Ox reveals the cover art and track list for their long awaited sophomore album,Â Blade of the Ronin.Â Â Blade of the RoninÂ solidifies the triumphant return of Cannibal Ox as the kings of underground hip-hop, as Vast and Vordul capture their trademark sound with Bill Cosmiq at the helm for the majority of the albumâ€™s production.

Â The album also features tremendous guest appearances from MF Doom, U-God (of Wu-Tang Clan), Elzhi, Artifacts and more, all of whom compliment the vibe of Can Ox.
