Aesop Rock – “Rings” video

(@aesoprockwins)
Aesop Rock is preparing to drop a self-produced album, called The Impossible Kid, at the end of April via Rhymesayers. I’m sure you’ve already heard about that, though. We haven’t seen a solo project since 2012’s Skelethon, so I’m extra pumped for this one. “Rings” is the first single and music video to drop, and Aesop said the following regarding inspiration for the song: “Rings reflects on my failure as a visual artist, and some of the regret I’ve experienced in regards to not pursuing it further.

The Uncluded – “Hokey Fright” album

My first exposure to Kimya Dawson‘s music was when a friend handed me The Moldy Peaches’ debut album, over 8 years ago. Her quirky charm, distinct sound, playful melodies, and not-so-normal topics are enough to draw in most listeners. Although I haven’t kept up with her music catalog as much as Aesop’s, I am still a fan of her work.

Now, the first Aesop Rock CD I ever purchased was Labor Days, over a decade ago. His music, along with a few other emcees, was what popped my underground hip hop cherry in 2000. Been a major fan since then–with all of his solo records, The Weathermen, and Hail Mary Mallon.

Aesop Rock – “Cycles to Gehenna” video

In the Behind Skelethon episode, Aesop Rock explains that “Cycles to Gehenna” is about riding a motorcycle at night, in the city, where your imagination begins to wander. The music video for it, which dropped a month ago, depicts just that, along with beautiful warrior women performing a stunning ballet piece. Watch now, and don’t forget to pick up a copy of “Skelethon“.

Aesop Rock – “ZZZ Top” video

@AesopRockWins #hiphop #music

Brand new Aesop Rock music video, for his song “ZZZ Top“, from his highly anticipated album “Skelethon” coming soon. The video is extra dope, like something straight out of a movie. Martial arts, violence, knife throwing, and ruthless murder. Moral of the story: don’t fuck with Patti Li. And who knew that Zumbi was so dope with a bat? Video directed by Pete Lee. Don’t forget to pre-order “Skelethon“, dropping on July 10th.

Alright, about to catch you up with the last 5 videos where Evidence speaks on the individual tracks from his upcoming release, “Cats & Dogs“. His newest video, below, is “Late for the Sky” that features Slug and Aesop Rock. Three of my long-time favorite hip hop artists on one song… yesss.

The three are in a group called Hail Mary Mallon, and their new album is named “Are You Gonna Eat That?“. The digital version is out now (links below), but if you’re like me… you’re ANXIOUSLY waiting for June 7th for the physical copies (CD/Vinyl).

Hail Mary Mallon – “Smock” video

Live from the burgundy Camry, Hail Mary Mallon rolls through with their first single, “Smock“, from the Rhymesayers debut album, “Are You Gonna Eat That?“.
