Vast Aire aka one half of NYC abstract hip hop duo Cannibal Ox, who are responsible for 2001's incredible El-P produced The Cold Vein, recently announced that he'll play a hometown show in NYC on July 12 at The Studio at Webster Hall with OutofaWhole and Kev Bars. Tickets for the show are on sale now. It's his only announced date at the moment but his facebook page makes it sound like more may be on the way.
Vast's most recent album was the OX 2010: A Street Odyssey LP, which came out last year, featuring contributions from Raekwon, Guilty Simpson, and more. Check out the video for "The Cannon of Samus" from that release below.
Speaking of El-P, he's been having an excellent year thanks to his production on Killer Mike's great new album, R.A.P. Music and his own also great Cancer 4 Cure LP. Unfortunately, he was forced to cancel some European festival appearances this week due to the unexpected passing of someone close to him, but as promised, the rest of his tour with Killer Mike, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, and Despot will proceed as planned. That tour includes the previously discussed NYC show on July 13 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that show are still available.
