Yesterday it was announced that Rhymesayers representative and alt-rap vanguard, Aesop Rock, would be teaming up with analogue synth wizard, TOBACCO, to form Malibu Ken. The duo have an album en route, scheduled for early 2019 release and Acid King is the first single from the project. Malibu Ken is due out on 18 January and pre-orders are available now.

It’s not like DOOM to be conventional, so that’s why it comes as no surprise that we are just being blessed with a video for his 2004 track, One Beer. The animation comes courtesy of Philly-based artist, Distortedd. MM.. Food is out now on Rhymesayers.

Mad claymation video from the Blah camp, as Lee Scott and Reklews bless us with another one from their recent Hock Tu Down reunion album. Hock Tu 3 is available to buy now on all formats.

Good to see the release of a new video from Billy Green is Dead, Jehst’s most recent album. This time round it’s the self-produced Billy Green’s Theme, which features another great animated accompaniment from Monsta Animation. Jehst embarks on his UK tour this week, alongside Confucius MC and Pitch 92, as well as a live band. They kick off in Bristol tomorrow night. Billy Green is Dead is out now on YNR Productions.

A suitably dope video has emerged for one of the gems to be found on the recent album from Jean Grae and Quelle Chris. My Contribution To This Scam has been bolstered in its brilliance with a great animated video from Crankbunny. If you’re not familiar with Crankbunny’s work, go Google the name and find yourself in awe of their paper engineering skills. The track is lifted from Everything’s Fine, which is out now on Mello Music Group.

Fresh animated visual from Ocean Wisdom, for the next track to be lifted from his acclaimed Wizville album. Tom & Jerry is produced by Leaf Dog and the duo have recently achieved the rare triumph of seeing the track being chosen for the Fifa 19 soundtrack. Wizville is out now on High Focus. The video was made by Grizzle Animation Studio.

Just the other day we were treated to new music from Muggs and DOOM, as they released their anticipated collaboration, featuring Freddie Gibbs and Kool G Rap. Now the duo are back with a new video for the Gibbs featured Death Wish. The animated video takes on a Sin City, neo-noir vibe thanks to the ample talents of Patric Magno and Edgar Nari. MUGGS X DOOM is out now via Soul Assassins.

Another jewel in the crown that is the latest album from Robohands. Strings, keys and psychedelia in the video too; what more could you ask for? Green is out now on Village Live Records.

Anderson Paak and Knxwledge recently released a new video for one of the tracks from their 2016 debut, Yes Lawd! Lyk Dis is arguably one of the highlights from the album and the animated video only adds to the appeal. The animation comes courtesy of Andy Baker who brings life to Rhymezlikedimez’s illustration skills. Yes Lawd! is out now on Stones Throw.

As I mentioned last week, the infamous Ramson Badbonez is back with a new album and Bloodsplat is the next track to be lifted from it. He goes in on the horrorcore angle, which won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but his dexterity on the mic is as on point as ever. Not sure who produced the track, but it’s same sample that Dike used in Don’t Make Me by Lee Scott – one for my fellow geeks. The video was made by Luca Bowles. Jason Bonez is out now on High Focus Records.
