Another key pioneer of the Def Jux alternative underground rap movement, Aesop Rock developed a cult following throughout the first decade of the new millennium. Building on the rapping style of past eccentrics Kool Keith and Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Aesop Rock pulled the hip-hop aesthetic left of center, and ushered in a new wave of “weirdo” MCs, who influence can be seen on this generations young stars like Danny Brown and Das Racist. Here, he plays a rare New York show to celebrate his new album Skelethon, his first set since 2008.
