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.”

Led by “Acid King” and “Corn Maze,” the album checks in at 10 tracks and can be heard below. Press play and be sure to add it on your preferred streaming platform.
