Aesop Rock's latest tune blind sided me the first time I listened to it. The underground MC, who has cult status in his native New York City, had been on hiatus, but Zero Dark Thirty hails his triumphant return.
The production is raw and the drum samples remind me of old break beat tunes: descending bass lines, viny scratching, and Aesop's flow are as legit as it gets.
His upcoming Skelethon EP will be released on the 10th of July and will be the man’s first album in over five years.
