Until Def Jux went on hiatus in 2010, Aesop Rock was one of the label's most consistently brilliant voices, with a gritty, futuristic take on left-field hip-hop. Now signed to Rhymesayers, his flow on his latest album, Skelethon, continues to be supremely confident and his lyrics truly mind-boggling, weaving together absurdist stories and bizarro imagery with acrobatic verbal dexterity. Hip-hop may not always translate well in the live arena, but Aesop's dizzying, disorienting shows never disappoint.

The New Parish says…

Since the release of None Shall Pass in 2007, we've seen Aesop Rock touring the world, launching online arts outlet, 900bats.com, and collaborating on LPs with Felt, Hail Mary Mallon, the Uncluded and more. Skelethon not only sees the rapper back waxing poetically on his own but also marks his first wholly self-produced effort.
