Aesop Rock - Cat Food EP

New-York rhyme-spitter Aesop Rock is one of the most lyrically-gymnastic and stylistically divisive rappers I have ever listened to. Where some hear intricately woven rhyme schemes worthy of diving into a thesaurus, other's hear contrived garbled nonsense. Personally, I've been a persistent fan of his work dating all the back to releases such as Float, Labor Days and the Daylight EP, so the surprise release of this EP was nothing short of exciting.

Featuring production by long-time collaborator Blockhead and cover art courtesy of concept artist Justin "El Coro" Kaufman, Catfood is a solid two-track release chock-full of awesome lines for hip-hop heads to ruminate over. Check the tracks "Catfood" and "Bug Zapper" below.
