Fair warning, if you don't have a soft spot in your heart for some weirdo rap/indie rock/whatever the f**k you would call Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson's side project, don't even bother to press play on the videoSee more...

Fuck it, I'm going back into my collection and pulling out a personal favorite: Aesop Rock's "Daylight" and "Nightlight". And yes, if you've ever heard Aesop, you already know this one will be some serious rap nerdery. See more...

You never know what you're going to get with Aesop Rock. One minute he's doing art videos with Jeremy Fish, the next minute he's stabbing people along with old Asian women, and now he's got ballet dancers doing...well...whatever the hell it is they're doing in this "Cycles to Gehenna" video.

If I can be allowed a moment of honestly, I really only had time for one more post today. Hey, I've got a family to attend to. But I was having some trouble deciding which one of the handful of dope albums that came out today to post. And then I realized fuck it, I'll just post them all. See more...

Imagine that Aesop Rock did the soundtrack to Tarantino's "Kill Bill", and then picture that instead of Uma Thurman the flick featured an old Asian woman. There, you know have an idea what Aesop's new video for "ZZZ Top" looks like. Watch....See more...

Believe it or not, I actually but time and thought into every post on RefinedHype. Unlike 99% of the other sites out there I believe in quality over quantity, but that also means some dope shit doesn't get posted just because I don't have the time. So fuck it. A ton of dope shit dropped today, here's my favorite shit listen in no particular order. See more...

I'm pretty sure it's been at least 32 years since I last hard a solo single from intricate rhymesayer Aesop Rock. Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but unless I've missed something it seems like Aesop Rock has been, well under a rock for the past few years especially when it comes to solo releases.

I don't have to do a rap nerd introduction for Evidence, do I? You all know who the Dilated Peoples alum is, right? Although maybe I do need to do a bit of background on Slug (half of Atmosphere) and lyrical Aesop Rock. Or maybe not. Maybe I should just play "Late for the Sky" and trust that y'all know your shit. Yeah, that's what I think I'm going to do. Listen and download...See more...

Even among hardcore underground rappity rap fans there are two groups - those who think Aesop Rock is completely overhyped, and those who think he's a fucking genius. The debate over Mr. Rock's lyrical merits get brought back up every time a new piece of audio with his voice surfaced - like, for example, this new "Which Way Is Up" cut with Atmosphere.

Over the last 48 hours (murder) I've got a steady stream of emails and tweets from my underground hip-hop head brethren freaking out about this new Aesop Rock "Take a Titty Out" track. To them I say, relax. Do some yoga, drink some chamomile teas. It's a joke. Listen and download...See more...
