It’s a safe bet that the rise to prominence of A$AP Rocky has jacked up the SEO friendliness of Aesop Rock. The latter, born Ian Matthias Bavitz, is a heralded underground MC that cam to fame as part of El-P’s Definite Jux enterprise in its heyday. After a five year or so hiatus, Aesop is back with a new album called Skelethon, out today (July 10th) via the good folks at Rhymesayers.
The Boston University graduate’s verbally dense music has always been polarizing in Hip-Hop circles. While many tout him as a lyricist savant, plenty are rather indifferent to his music. Wherever you may fall, you can listen to a full stream of the Aesop’s self-produced sixth album below.
If you’re impressed, you can pick up Skelethon on iTunes. Also while you’re here, check out Aesop’s fight scene filled video for “ZZZ Top” on the next page.
