Jacob & Fiona One of my favourite albums ever. Interestingly touching and as usual with Aesop, always a little new on every listen.

A Ferengi Jedi Aesop Rock is possibly the only hip hop artist who could write a song about his kitten and have it be not only consistent with his entire body of work, but relate to EVERY single feeling a cat person would have no matter how squishy. A feline favourite for fans, fantastic album, but can't get past Kirby, this man continues to amaze me with his concept choices, unique delivery, relatable metaphors and fantastical imagery. Has great taste in cover art, too. To me, Aesop is King. Favorite track: Kirby.

about

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.
