Seeing the names Aesop Rock and Blockhead together is difficult to ignore. So when I saw that their latest collaboration, a two-track EP called Cat Food, was only available if you bought a limited Kid Robot figurine, I resisted the urge to destroy my desk. Why? Because I didn’t necessarily need that figurine and didn’t want to cop one, aight? Well, Aes Rock decided that the people needed to hear the tracks, “Cat Food” and “Bug Zapper,” and shared them through the Rhymesayers Soundcloud. Thank the music lords he did, because these songs are ridiculously dope (as expected) and further prove that both Rock and ‘head are two of the most consistent cats (pun intended) making music. I mean, did you hear Bestiary?
You can stream the two-track EP below. It’s worth noting that Blockhead only produced the title track, but still, these two together? Fire.
