Malibu Ken is pure fun for total weirdos.
New York-originating rapper Aesop Rock has been known throughout his career for his relentlessly wordy and enigmatic style, and his new single “Klutz” is no exception. The dark and paranoid song is a testament to his status as a top-tier wordsmith - no hook or refrain necessary; just bar after bar of dense rhymes. Aesop Rock acknowledged this in a statement about the song, saying that occasionally “song structure eludes me and it feels good. No problem-solving or pesky hit chorus, just rambling.”
Aesop Rock released his "Hot Dogs" single last year, as well as the third installment of a collaborative EP series with Homeboy Sandman called Lice. His last album, The Impossible Kid came out in 2016.
There's a song on here where he raps about his pet cat, Kirby. What more do you need to know?
Minneapolis MC Prof comes through with a hilarious video for his latest single, "Bar Breaker!" The track, produced by Aesop Rock, appears on his forthcoming full-length Liability, out October 16 via Rhymesayers Entertainment.
