Rating Aesop Rock’s Discography

Aesop Rock is honestly one of the greatest, most underrated lyricists of all time. As I said in my review of Malibu Ken, I’ve legitimately never heard a bad song by him. My favorite album from him is definitely his underground classic, Labor Days. The only project from him that I’ve never listened to is the Appleseed EP that he dropped in 1999, so that won’t be counted in this post. I’m counting Malibu Ken as a solo album just because he’s the only MC featured on the project.
