Aesop and El-P are bread and butter - they go hand in hand. No need to compare or say one is a wannabe. But anyway, I won't be able to say anything about Aesop Rock falling off until I hear his new album this year.

I suppose we will have that debate once both of their albums are released.

Aesop Rock has definitely fallen off lately, but he's been annoying to me since even before that, which is strange since Labor Days was one of my first hip hop albums. Maybe I'm not justified in calling him a "wannabe El-P", but I can't help myself from judging them against each other. I mean hey, El-p was doing his thing before aesop and and he also started the label that AR would eventually join.
I think your reaching a little bit to make your point that aesop is overrated. Which is very valid.

However, Aesop has been doing his thing for as long as el-p, and has always had a distinct sound. I think the comparison in flow and style is the result of them both being technically great rappers, being the same age, and being from the same general area.



"my daytime is on some, yes sir, okay sir, do you mind if breath sir, oh you do, well excuse me sir **** you"

To me Aesop is more vague like anti-establishment, imagery-driven, emotionally vulnerable type stuff, and El-P is more concrete anti-establishment, neo-future thematic type stuff. Which is why, like you, I think he's better because he's not hiding under a blanket of shit that's only "interpretive", he's actually commenting on stuff in a profound, digestible way.

Anybody up for a el-p vs aesop rock thread? I think that would be pretty interesting.

I say we change the title to, "el-p vs aesop rock vs mf doom" i think that covers about all of the MB hip hop fanboys on this site.

Maybe it's the Jim Beam talking, but I don't think Del is a particularly good rapper. He has character and sometimes has cool lyrics, but his flow is not only extremely repetitive, it always sounds like he's imitating some forgotten 80s rapper.

^I don't think Jim Beam's got anything to do with it cause I'm completely sober and I feel the same way.
