RHH: Raekwon's OB4CL2 Or Cannibal Ox's Cold Vein?
Consider the following...
1 - Production
2 - Lyrics
3 - Replay value
I like the variety of answers who are totally for one album. (Except Big C's)
@Cognautic Creix - Could you explain why Cold Vein is better in your opinion?

Raekwon OB4CL2. I can't stand CanOx. There's something about them that's not cool.
Production- J Dilla, Pete Rock, Marley Marl, RZA, Alchemist, and Dr.Dre production on OB4CL2> EL-P's shitty beats on Cold Vein.
Lyrics- Raekwon shits on both of them in CanOx. Not even close.
Replay- I can listen to Raekwon's album. I can't listen to Can ox.

The Cold Vein
1 - The Cold Vein ( El-P's best work )
2 - The Cold Vein ( Vast Aire said some of the illest sh\t ever. )
3 - The Cold Vein ( It's more unique than OB4CL2 )

The Cold Vein sweeps OB4Cl2 in every aspect.
Edit: Several reasons, the first being Cannibal Ox's supreme lyrical dominance over Raekwon...I mean, sure, Rae could spit an entendre every now and then, and he was an amazing story-teller back in the day, but he never had the kind of allusions and metaphors that Cannibal Ox have.
Otherwise, Vordul Mega and Vast Aire cover a larger amount of concepts in newer, more original, and more interesting ways than another of Rae's mafioso albums...Lyrically it's just better in every aspect...
Production-wise, it's pretty easy to give it to El-P if you enjoy his work, I mean, his digitally inspired beats paint a huge spacey and innovative atmosphere for Vast Aire and Vordul Mega to work with, and they took that sh*t and murdered it. Raekwon was given his traditionally grimy yet dope beats, which, although great, weren't near the level of what El-P gave "The Cold Vein."

Cold Vein, but it's pretty close
1. Cold Vein
2. Cold Vein
3. Cold Vein
Even though it's Cold Vein everything, it's not by much on production or replay value.

OB4CL II for everything
1. c'mon, i can't believe people are saying the cold vein had better production.
2. i'll admit, rae's lyrics weren't always that great but all of the guests helped a lot
3. i got all the bonus tracks, which makes the album over 80 mins and i'd still listen to it anyday

1 - OB$CL2
2 - Cold Vein. Good lyrics don't always mean a good album
3 - OB4CL2
- Big C.Lv 510 years ago
Overall, I would say the Cold Vein
1. Production: OB4CLII
2. Lyrics: Cold Vein
3. Replay Value: Cold Vein
Both good albums though.
