Aesop Rock To Tour Aug./Sept.

 

“Blazing a trail far ahead of his peers…”

By Blurt Staff

 

 

Aesop Rock along
with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz  are
heading out to the highway in support of Mr. Rock’s None Shall Pass (Def
Jux) album, issued last year. The man his mom calls Ian Bavitz also is planning
an Adidas show model through Upper Playground slated for retail sale at the end
of July 2008.  Details, as the saying goes, “coming soon.”

 

 

Way back when we
were advised by the label that
the
record was “created over a two year period and documents not only a vast amount
of personal change that Aesop experienced over this time, but deftly depicts
scenes and stories relative to all ages of life. Production is a vital strong
point on this album, with the majority of production duties handled by Aesop’s
longtime partner Blockhead. El-P and Rob Sonic each make offerings, while Aesop
himself confidently produces a large portion of his own tracks as well. The
duality of Aesop’s hectic stream-of-thought coupled with the complex production
on this album makes no exception to Aesop Rock‘s
consistent pedigree, blazing a trail far ahead of his peers with an album that
will be followed for years to come.”

 

 

But you knew that, right?
