Lotta Years

Rhymesayers Entertainment
'You should've seen me in the '80s bumpin' New Edition...' — Hey, how come none of you numbskulls told me that Aesop Rock had got THIS good? 'Lotta Years' isn't strong enough in itself to make me spring cash for the 'Impossible Kid' longplayer (although looking at the LP I'm massively encouraged by the fact it has NO guests and is just AR throughout) but fuck me as a standalone track it's a doozie. Redolent in its whacked-out not-give-a-fuckness of J-Zone, a great gritty lo-slung groove over which droney keys, tough-assed guitar and AR's stoner-gibberish rhymes sit a treat. Get it get it get it.
