Aesop Rock

Aesop Rock
None Shall Pass
(Definitive Jux)

It’s been 2 years since we last had a release from Aesop Rock. Following his amazing Labor Days album in 2001 came Bazooka Tooth, which saw him change up the production style and carried on into the Fast Cars, Danger, Fire And Knives EP.

Whether you loved his newer style or wanted him to go back to the days of Labor Days and Float, Aesop Rock has always been able to surprise people, and this title track, taken from his upcoming album None Shall Pass, does it once again. Switching up to a faster beat, Aes Rizzle certainly hasn’t left one thing behind – his crazy use of words, peep the first few lines of this track:

“Flash that buttery gold, jittery zeitgeist wither by the watering hole, what a patrol, what are we to heart huckabee art fuckery suddenly? Not enough young in his lung for the waterwings? Colourfully vulgar poacher outta mulch like “I’m ‘a pull the pulse out a soldier and bolt”. Fine. Sign of the time we elapse when a primate climb up a spine and attach.”

Yeah, we’ll have whatever he’s on please. Right, get this track playing, it’s dope, plain and simple.
