Vast Aire (born Theodore Arrington on February 5, 1978) is a rapper from New York City. He is one half of the New York rap duo Cannibal Ox, which consists of himself and fellow rapper Vordul Mega. He is also a member of the rap group Atoms Family. He was born in Mount Vernon, New York, then lived in Jamaica, Queens before moving to Harlem, where he became acquainted with the underground rap scene, performing in many clubs while still a teenager. He was once a part of the underground hip hop super-group The Weathermen. He has been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. [ [ "Giant Peach Interview with Alaska] , 2004, p.3.]

Vast Aire's fame increased significantly as part of Cannibal Ox with Vordul mega. Together with producer El-P, they recorded their debut album, "The Cold Vein", and released it in 2001. The album was a critical success. Since then, Vast Aire has pursued solo interests. His first solo album "Look Mom...No Hands" was released in April 2004. This was followed by "The Best Damn Rap Show", a collaborative effort with DJ Mighty Mi from the High and Mighty in 2005. Contrary to popular belief, these solo projects did not break Vast Aire from his obligations at Definitive Jux with Cannibal Ox. Vast has since went on to work with members from the Megahertz crew, forming the Weathermen, where he worked with the likes of Copywrite, Yak Ballz, Cage, Aesop Rock, and Tame One. Vast is also a part of a super-group called LXG, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

When asked about the meaning of his name, Vast Aire explained: "I guess it means mad styles. I think it means a lot of attitude. Vast Aire. I have a very wordy type of style. Vast was given to me by a friend of mine I went to school with and the Aire pretty much came from me being a junior. My name is Theodore Arrington II. I used to spell it proper. H-E-I-R. But, in the past couple of years, I switched it to A-I-R-E." [ [ :: MVRemix Interviews - Vast Aire :: ] ]
