If you didn’t know already, the mighty Blockhead is releasing an album shortly, packed full of rap talent. That talent includes his long term friend and collaborator, Aesop Rock. When I first got into Aesop, it was due to the material he and Blockhead had pumped out back in those halcyon Def Jux days. Yesterday saw the release of their song from the forthcoming album and I’m pleased to report that their union has lost none of its original appeal. Free Sweatpants is due for release on 18 January on Backwoodz Studioz.
