Aesop Rock: The greatest poet of our generation.
« on: August 09, 2019, 03:23:25 PM »
I've been listening to the man since 1999, I think he is incomparable in style, and to quote a YouTube comment(Jesus Christ....) "he is the Shakespeare of hiphop" Now however you want to take that, comparably in decades  is quite right,Aesop Rock is a linguist with few rivals, for jargon delivery.

None Shall Pass being a perfect example of devilish vocabulary and poetry:

I think he's great. Never topped that album or labor days though.

Also the only rapper I've seen live to have absolutely perfect delivery, amazing control and every syllable was there even at top speed. I can understand why some people hate him, but I've been a fan for ages.

What do you reckon to his production work bazooka? Earlier in his career i wasn't the biggest fan of his beats but i think he's improved a lot. I notice he did a film soundtrack but I've not seen/heard it
