Hey chumps! Listen up!
Underground rap fixture Aesop Rock was gone for a while, but now he’s back. Well, he wasn’t entirely gone, what with him releasing a record as Hail Mary Mallon, his group with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz. He was partially gone, as he hadn’t put out a solo record since 2007’s None Shall Pass. The point is, he’s totally back now, having put out his new record Skelethon (TMT Review) mere months ago via Rhymesayers. Now you know the story, chumps! Maybe you knew the story before.
But wait chumps! There’s more!
This fall, Aesop Rock will be embarking on a couple of jaunts through North America. In a few days, he’ll head out on a West Coast trip. After that, he’ll soak his feet in a fine soaking tub, only to emerge again for a more Midwest/East Coast-focused trip. He will do some raps and it will be a fine time, you chumps.
