Aesop Rock – Thorns f. Slug & Eyedea [Unreleased]

blame it on Shake November 2, 2011

Well well well.. what do we have here!? An unreleased cut from Ace, Slug and Eyedea? Yeah, my day is made. I’ll let Aesop take it from here.

This was one of the songs we had recorded on what I believe was Slug and Eyedea’s first trip to NYC. If memory serves, we ended up not keeping it because it didn’t really have any direction or structure – it was more just us 4 bugging out and getting to know each other. The same trip yielded “Missed by a Mile” with the same line-up, as well as another one or two that never saw the light of day. As my deadline for Labor Days was approaching I knew I wanted to use the beat for my record, so this version was dismantled.

And while the song is available for the low-low price of an email address, any and all donations will go to helping Mr. Dibbs with his recently incurred medical expenses. For those that don’t know, the DJ/producer was recently diagnosed with Cirrhosis (which is the final phase of chronic liver disease) and the cost of treatment is out of this world. Anything will help!
