A$AP Rocky and Aesop Rock may both be from New York, but they come from different ends of the hip-hop spectrum. They do, however, have one very glaring similarity—yeah, their names. Aesop Rock has been around for years but he’s always been more confined to the independent/underground hip-hop circuit. The introduction of A$AP Rocky was odd because he quickly gained traction in a different market, a more mainstream one, but there was some obvious overlap. It left the people who knew about both Aesop Rock and A$AP Rocky a little confused.
But finally, we accept it. There is an Aesop Rock and there is an A$AP Rocky. And finally, they have met. Now can you just imagine what a song with these two together would sound like?
