Aesop Rock and TOBACCO announced the arrival of their join album in November with the release of the single "Acid King.""I am happy to announce my latest project in collaboration with my old friend Tobacco," wrote Aesop at the time. "I hope you enjoy this music, and have a nice day." His well wishes were in complete contrast to the hideous looking Ken that accompanied the post. Now, Aesop and TOBACCO's project has touched down. Entitled Malibu Ken, the project spans for ten tracks.
There are no listed features on Malibu Ken. “TOBACCO and I have thrown around the idea of doing a project together since we first toured over a decade ago,” Aesop stated of the project. “I find his production to be something special, and always wanted to see what I could bring to it. We recently found time to record some songs, and Malibu Kenwas born. I brought a few stories to the table, but also did my best to let the production dictate the subject matter throughout. We hope you like the soup.”
