Jack Wilson Underrated hip-hop album!

This was recommended to me by a friend of mine from college and have been listening ever since! Favorite track: Mystery Fish.

Big_G Never before have I listened to a song that recounts an event from my childhood.

Brother a little younger than Chris had to fight just as hard to see Aesop live. My dad ended up going to keep an eye on things. A better end than Chris missing Ministry at least. After, my dad opted to trash talk music that was important to his son instead of putting in the effort to try and understand it.

My brother and I live together now and we agree Aesop Rock reminds us of growing up. Fuck em. Favorite track: Blood Sandwich.

Drenochrome so many songs off this album fucking SLAP. god tier rapping from aesop, plus the production is over the top good. blood sandwich is one of my favorite hip hop songs of all time. the clear story told and the brother-loving nature of the song just hits me in a way ive never been. Favorite track: Blood Sandwich.

Indie-rap mainstay Aesop Rock has announced his new album, The Impossible Kid, dropping April 29th on Rhymesayers Entertainment, marking his first solo venture since 2012’s Skelethon. On the new album, Aesop continues finding new ways to improve on the skills that have made him one of the kings of indie hip-hop. His creative process now includes a newfound willingness to open up about his personal life, going deep on topics like depression, his sometimes rocky relationship with his family, and the turbulent handful of years that culminated in Aesop leaving his adopted home of San Francisco to live in a barn out in the woods, where he recorded the foundations of The Impossible Kid. There’s also moments of levity though, as Aesop taps into the funny side of his persona that he suppressed during the period where being taken as a serious lyricist was more of a priority. Like Skelethon, Aesop exercised complete creative control over every aspect of the album, from the production (which he handled himself, with instrumental help from Philly’s Grimace Federation) to conceptualizing the cover art by his friend Alex Pardee.
