Aesop Rock

Building on the rapping style of eccentrics Kool Keith and Del the Funky Homosapien, Def Jux headliner Aesop Rock became one of the hottest MCs in the post-millennial underground. After a pair of self-released LPs (Appleseed, Music for Earthworms), he recorded Float for Mush in 2000. The former Ian Bavitz then issued a pair of singles -- "Coma" and "Boom Box" -- for another underground rap label paragon, Definitive Jux. His second full-length, 2001's Labor Days, earned positive reviews and featured production from El-P and Blockhead. The Daylight EP kept his name in the papers, and his Def Jux follow-up, Bazooka Tooth, was released in September 2003. A seven-track EP, Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives, followed in early 2005.

In early 2007 Aesop Rock composed a 45-minute piece for Nike's Original Run series, a continuous track meant to be listened to while jogging (other artists included LCD Soundsystem and the Crystal Method), and by September his much-anticipated full-length, None Shall Pass, which included guest appearances from El-P and John Darnielle (from the Mountain Goats), came out. A year later, Def Jux would be put "on hiatus" by label head El-P, but Aesop would remain busy, producing major works like Felt's 2009 effort Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez and working on a collaboration with the Moldy Peaches' Kimya Dawson dubbed the Uncluded. He would return to his solo career in 2012 with Skelethon, released by the Rhymesayers label. The album featured a guest appearance from Dawson along with Rob Sonic and Allyson Baker of Dirty Ghosts. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

the absolute greatest word smith ever in the history of music/poetry . Ian Matthias Bavitz, or Aesop Rock, WILL aboslutely be studied in the future, just as Aristotle and the many other Greek philosophers .

Aesop is great, but Rocky's mixtape game is rock-solid.

I heard about Rocky after I'd been listening to Aesop for a little while. I was not in the least amused by this coincidence, especially after I heard some of Rocky's so-called music. Jesus.

Damn I remember when I saw this guy live in Miami that s**t was the highlight of my high school life besides getting my deck played with pretty much all of the time by a bunch of hood rats, even though I would have never admitted that back in the day but that's only because most of them have kids now and I had to make sure that none of them were mine nah just kidding I love my son to death and back which I doubt that any of you who are reading this will ever be able to say when in your lifetime

Ouch man. Just enjoy the chill tunes. Sure he didn't mean nothing by it.

Aesop's Fables is where the name comes from and ASAP Rocky has 1/3 of the vocabulary of Aes. That's why I know what I'm talking about before leaving lame a** comments.
