    Just out of curiousity, why don't you like Aesop Rock? He's one of my absolute favorites and I've never heard anyone have a strong preference against him before.

    Aes never really grabbed my attention as a rapper (or talk-er?), but I like his beats.

    Sorry, but that's ridiculous. That may be true for his music of the early 00s, but then again EL didn't particulary rap on beat then either, did he?

    early 00's is when I gave up. Never bothered with him after that. Think I heard him on some Mr. Lif stuff and kept eyerolling.

    Run The Jewels will be playing Summer Camp 2017. Based on the first wave of annoucements, I'll definitely be waiting for single-day passes to go on sale.

    I just wanna know when that ELP/ZDLR album is coming out. Digging For Windows was a beast of a song.

    The mixing on that feels off for some reason -- Mike and El's vocals compete really harshly and the music feels muffled to me.

    To be honest, that's how most live performances on TV sound to me these days. I'm guessing there's some rule about how sound is mixed for broadcast.

    I don't know. I love EL-P's work, his production especially, but RTJ somehow doesn't do anything for me. Compared to EL's solo stuff it all seems a bit too melodramatic and simple and it also doesn't help that I can't really get into Killer Mike and the way they carry their "wokeness" around with them.

    I get though why they pursuing this so strongly. They both seem happier then ever before as artists and they also enjoy a popularity they never before had in their careers. So as a fan I'm not mad at them. I'm just hoping for another EL-P solo record sometime in the distant future.
