Cannibal Ox – “Iron Rose” (Feat. MF Doom)

The Harlem rap duo Cannibal Ox are back together and getting ready to release Blade Of The Ronin, their first album since the clattering 2001 nerd-rap masterpiece The Cold Vein. The biggest name to kick in a guest-verse on the album is MF Doom, Can Ox’s free-associating backpacker peer from back in the day. (I guess he’s re-added the MF to his name?) The group has now shared the Doom collab “Iron Rose,” a lurching number that mostly seems to be about how Vast Aire is really into the word “iron.” Doom’s verse is pretty great. Listen below.
