Aesop Rock has long solidified himself to be one of the game's most cutting-edge and thought-provoking lyricists, though his bars often benefit from a close reading or two. After all, the man largely deals in the abstract, leaving fans to attach meaning as they see fit; the closest we've come to hip-hop dream interpretation. Today, Rock has once again reunited the New York iconBlockhead, who is in the process of readying his own Free Sweatpants album. You might remember that Rock and Block previously linked up for the acclaimed "None Shall Pass" back in 2007, which many still herald as Aesop's finest project.
Speaking with HipHopDX, Blockhead opened up about their new collaboration "Kiss The Cook." “It had been a while since Aes and I worked on an original song, but once we started, the pieces just fell into place,” he explains. “Mixing it was interesting because originally the production had a harsher edge, but I moved to something more melodic and upbeat.”
Cold roll up on a very clean easel
Turn a landscape into unspeakable evil
Eek, it's un-freaking-believable
Freakish so we're fitting in
Voices in his head that beleaguer the equilibrium
