Aesop Rock

Building on the rapping style of eccentrics Kool Keith and Del the Funky Homosapien, Def Jux headliner Aesop Rock became one of the hottest MCs in the post-millennial underground. After a pair of self-released LPs (Appleseed, Music for Earthworms), he recorded Float for Mush in 2000. The former Ian Bavitz then issued a pair of singles -- "Coma" and "Boom Box" -- for another underground rap label paragon, Definitive Jux. His second full-length, 2001's Labor Days, earned positive reviews and featured production from El-P and Blockhead. The Daylight EP kept his name in the papers, and his Def Jux follow-up, Bazooka Tooth, was released in September 2003. A seven-track EP, Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives, followed in early 2005.

In early 2007 Aesop Rock composed a 45-minute piece for Nike's Original Run series, a continuous track meant to be listened to while jogging (other artists included LCD Soundsystem and the Crystal Method), and by September his much-anticipated full-length, None Shall Pass, which included guest appearances from El-P and John Darnielle (from the Mountain Goats), came out. A year later, Def Jux would be put "on hiatus" by label head El-P, but Aesop would remain busy, producing major works like Felt's 2009 effort Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez and working on a collaboration with the Moldy Peaches' Kimya Dawson dubbed the Uncluded. He would return to his solo career in 2012 with Skelethon, released by the Rhymesayers label. The album featured a guest appearance from Dawson along with Rob Sonic and Allyson Baker of Dirty Ghosts. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

never realized aesop had a lisp until heard this song.
Dont sleep on this Aesop rock
All kinds of great artist on my grieves station.
Damn I remember when I saw this guy live in Miami that s**t was the highlight of my high school life besides getting my deck played with pretty much all of the time by a bunch of hood rats, even though I would have never admitted that back in the day but that's only because most of them have kids now and I had to make sure that none of them were mine nah just kidding I love my son to death and back which I doubt that any of you who are reading this will ever be able to say when in your lifetime
Damn right f**k ASAP rocky that guy is no where near close to being on aesop rocks level of rhymes or intelligence
bdodi83
F**k ASAP rocky
Ouch man. Just enjoy the chill tunes. Sure he didn't mean nothing by it.
Aesop's Fables is where the name comes from and ASAP Rocky has 1/3 of the vocabulary of Aes. That's why I know what I'm talking about before leaving lame a** comments.
Something tells me ASAP Rocky and this guy have something in common. What could it be?

Don't miss the skelethon!
thelarosas1
his music blows my face off
The champ right here...
Y'all bicker like leaves on a tree. I'm sick of one branch hating another branch on the same tree. It's all hip hop, respect it!
Big ups Aeso, f**kin a**hole. lol for real tho, at it's core HIP HOP is 4 elements, breaking, emcee'ing, dj'ing and graff, plus the other 20+ if you subscribe to KRS's curriculum. I'm really tired of people arguing over who is the best. Stop comparing artists. If they don't battle, they don't rank. There's no point in comparing Aesop to Slug, or anyone else for that matter. As a battle emcee, I LOVE some good competition, but on the reals, stop. Just enjoy the music, it's not a pop. contest.
sick style!
thank you for making good music
