New Material: Aesop Rock – “Tomorrow Morning”

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , , on Monday, December 22, 2008 by Erik Burg

Some new material from one of my favorite hip-hop artists out there, Aesop Rock, was released about a week ago, coming packaged along with some other goodies as well. Jeremy Fish, whose name you may recognize as the artist from Aesop’s “None Shall Pass” LP, has an art exhibit up in San Francisco right now and originally this track was created for the exhibit, but it’s now obviously available for all to enjoy.


And enjoy you will, as Aesop brings his usual unusual vocals and characteristic lyrics to this banging track. The beat is absolute fire, and makes for a nice treat to any fan of any Aesop material in the past, and I’ll stand alone and say this track ranks up there if not above “Daylight” as the fable man’s best track. But I’ll let you be the judge of that one.

Folk&Stress: “Brothers Freestyle”

folkThis is the first post of many that I am going to be making about these guys. Folk&Stress are two cats (they are fucking brothers… how sick is that shit?) out of New York, and boy can they make some really fucking good Hip-Hop. It’s funny because I hadn’t heard anything about these guys at all until I watched the Vimby video at Southpaw for Black Milk’s release of Tronic. I immediately jumped over to their MySpace page and was completely blown away by the amount of punch that these two pack. I can tell you right now that their album The Box still has a “to be announced” date attached to it, but once that shit hits you are going to feel it for a long time.

Take a listen to this freestyle with the backdrop of Gang Starr’s Code of the Streets. I’m pretty sure this beat gets completely decimated by these guys, if you feel any different I think that you might be brain dead (either that or entirely too high). Keep on the watch for The Box it features guest appearances by GZA, Vast Aire, Aesop Rock, Blu, Bronze Nazareth & production by Wu affiliate Dreddy Kruger. I don’t know about you but by that guest list alone, this album sounds like it will be something that you are definitely going to want to have. Check out the track below and jump over to their MySpace.
