Aesop Rock teams up with Nike

Def Jex rapper has teamed up with Nike on their new series.

Aesop Rock, who has a new album out this year entitled None Shall Pass, has been set alongside LCD Soundsystem and The Crystal Method after joining forces with Nike. He will release original compositions for the 3rd Nike + Original Run series.

All Day: Nike + Original Run will be a 45 minute mix, which was created with runners in mind and the rapper/producer said of the record:

“I wanted to create something that evolved enough that the sound was constantly fresh and attractive, as if the runner were moving through a set of differing cities or landscapes.”
