Malibu Ken, Aesop Rock & TOBACCO

About Malibu Ken, Aesop Rock & TOBACCO

Aesop Rock and TOBACCO are no strangers. Aes toured with TOBACCO’s side project, Black Mother Super Rainbow, back in 2007. A year later, the two teamed up for “Dirt". And now, a decade later, they have a full-length collaborative project on the horizon.

“TOBACCO and I have thrown around the idea of doing a project together since we first toured over a decade ago,” says Aesop in a statement. “I find his production to be something special, and always wanted to see what I could bring to it. We recently found time to record some songs, and Malibu Ken was born. I brought a few stories to the table, but also did my best to let the production dictate the subject matter throughout. We hope you like the soup.”

Aesop Rock has been credited as one of the most verbose MC’s in Hip-Hop today. Known for his dense and abstract wordplay, he manipulates language to illustrate elaborate stories and difficult concepts with sharp clarity. TOBACCO is also recognized as Black Moth Super Rainbow. Known for working with pre-digital electronic instruments like analog synths and tape machines, he crafts distorted, experimentalist beats that intertwine feelings of tension and anxiety with sensations of bemusement and pleasure. Together, Aesop Rock and TOBACCO are Malibu Ken.
