It’s been a minute since Aesop Rock released a project, but the artist with the largest vocabulary in rap is officially back with Malibu Ken, a collaborative effort alongside producer TOBACCO.
“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.”
