    Mark your calendars, Aesop Rock is back in form and coming out with a new solo album on July 10th called Skelethon through Rhymesayers Entertainment.

    Check out his first single "Zero Dark Thirty" below and tell us what you think!

    Also, here's a little promotional video for the album. It's a little weird. :lol:

    Goddamn! Rhymesayers is scooping up all the dope rappers! :mellow:

    The track is sick! Love how the beat is a mix of digitized tunes and gritty/dirty drums. Def looking forward to the album.


    edit: WTF @ the promo :lol:

    Finally got around to listening to this, so good. Glad it still sounds like Def Jux, which probably sounds dumb in 2012, but I don't really enjoy anything that Rhymesayers has put out anymore.

    Sorta related: New El-P album is out May 22nd on Fat Possum, probably won't have Aes on it, but will still be real cool.

    Over the next few weeks Aesop Rock is going to be describing all the tracks he's been working on for Skelethon on RSE's official YouTube. So far it sounds promising.

    Yeah I love the atmospheric feel to the instrumental. Though I hate to say it, but this record might actually pass LIVING THINGS if it touches the right places at the right time. :quagmire:

    I just gave a listen to the Crows 1 preview just posted today on RSE's channel, and that song is going to be killer!

    I KNOW! I listened to the first couple of seconds of all the track previews released so far. Album sounds so promising!

    Funny how similar his name is to another indie rapper, AS$P Rocky.

    Funny how A$AP Rocky has only been doing music since 2007, while Aesop Rock has been doing music since 1996. ;)

    Ha ha, this is actually the first time I've heard of Aesop Rock. Who knows, maybe AS$P Rocky made that his name to salute Aesop Rock.

    Edit: I like what I've heard so far.
