After months of new songs, videos, and other shenanigans, Aesop Rock’s seventh studio album, The Impossible Kid, is finally available for us peasants to enjoy. You had to have been sleeping under a rock if you’ve been caught unaware, because the roll-out for this record has been spectacular. In addition to the three leading singles, we also got a free-verse over Pusha T’s “Untouchable,” a four episode web series, and the entire album was uploaded to YouTube almost a full week early. I’m still in the process of digesting the album’s lyrical musings, but I am willing to say that this is the most fun I’ve had with a new album in quite some time.
The Impossible Kid is available just about everywhere, so feel free to shop on your preferred platform.
