Cannibal Ox


“Harlem Knights” (video) Having sharpened their skills for reunion LP Blade of the Ronin, hip-hop duo Cannibal Ox are now offering up a neon-lit, slice-of-life-style video behind the set’s “Harlem Knights.”

Vast Aire and Vordul Mega are walking through their neighbourhood in the clip, spitting bars from behind chain link fences and various street scenes, or while hanging out in Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park. The smooth and nocturnal beat has them offering up lines juxtaposing broken bottles with boxes of Mike and Ikes, and friendly Super Soaker fights with real street violence.

It’s an uptown anthem, and you can find the pair repping their turf down below.
