I just got Aesop Rock - Labor Days in yesterday.
That was a good recomendation. Out of the 14 tracks on the cd none where bad, but I really only liked 5. Those 5 though where amazing and blew me away. The rest where pretty cool and I wouldn't skip over them if listening to the album in full, they just weren't memorable enough to make it on my 4gig iPod The tracks I really liked where Daylight, Flash flood, boombox, 9-5ers anthem and shovel. Which I felt had more melody to them than other tracks. Either way his lyrics are crazy and judging from this album he seems to be a very good artist... not just an entertainer.
Anyway for a person who really isn't onto rap I think it was a good album and I'm most likely going to buy his other stuff. Any recommendations on what other album I should pick up next from him?
Sweet, while I was writing this I just got in Jill Scott :Who is Jill Scott"
and The Roots "Things Fall Apart" I'll post my impressions of those later.
Thanks for all the recommendations
You got the better aesop one, you can stop there if only 5 track get there way to your DAP
His new stuff are so-so to plain horrible IMHO. Float isn't half bad though so if you want another Aesop this would be the one. If you like Aesop lyrics you should realy give Sage Francis a listen, he's realy a top notch poet. Continue to give us your impression it's always cool to help a new hip-hop heads
Oh and flamerz we seem to have the same taste in hip-hop, if you find new cool stuff let us know hehe
