With less than a month to go before their album drops, Aesop Rock and Tobacco–together as Malibu Ken–are back with the project’s second single, “Corn Maze.”
“TOBACCO and I have thrown around the idea of doing a project together since we first toured over a decade ago,” Aesop says. “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.”
After kicking off the campaign with “Acid King” last month, the emcee/producer duo keep it coming with a Rob Shaw-directed clip that brings the anti-social anthem to life with Aesop in an insomniac daze where bizarre late night cartoons seemingly become self-aware.
Press play below and check out Malibu Ken on January 18th.
