Some new visuals applied to the Aesop Rock track "Cycles To Gehanna." You might remember it from the dude's new album, Skelethon. Check that shiz if you haven't heard it yet. The dude's lyrics are stellar. Beats are unique, too. Dude is one of a kind.
Aesop Rock has emerged from where ever he has been hiding for the last five years with a new music video and single. He has continued to improve his abstract lyrical style and delivery in this track, which is probably one of his catchiest to date while still maintaining that lyrical density he is known for.
The video features a bearded Aesop sitting in front of a plain white wall used a canvas for a graffiti artist to continuously tag with different images. The images resemble what I imagine it is like to be inside the mind and imagination of Aesop, dark, yet interesting and colorful. These images change frequently creating an interesting dynamic with Aesop Rock sitting stationary under them.
Skelethon is set to drop July 10 on Rhymesayers.
