I can’t hardly contain myself right now. My hands-down-no-doubt-absolute-favorite Hip-Hop artist is Aesop Rock. His entire discography flows like greased river and is as cryptic as russian secrets. Unfortunately, “Labor Days” had been out of print for over 10 years. And it was very hard to track down a copy, let alone pay the price to have it.
Well guess what?
Rhymesayers have blessed us with a repress of this record and Fifth Element have been nice enough to ship ’em. Not sure on the exact number (I’ll reach out to them for an answer), but I would not miss this release.
“Labor Days” is considered one of Aesop’s best (though I’d argue they’re all great in their own way). It demands repeat listens to crack the conceptually lyrical puzzle that Aesop spills from beginning to end. And now you get to spin that on 180g. Mmmmmm.
For the first time since going out of print on vinyl, Aesop Rock's classic albums Labor Days (2001) & Bazooka Tooth (2003) are being re-issued in limited quantities. Complete your package by bundling the vinyl with a t-shirt representation of the original album artwork and receive a 10% discount. While supplies last.
