Aesop Rock Tour Dates
American producer and hip hop artist Aesop Rock was born on June 5, 1976 with the real name of Ian Matthias Bavitz. Having his origins from New York City, most of his fame came from his work in the field of alternative hip hop and underground music at the turn of the century.
Coming from a family settled in Northport, Long Island, New York, Aesop Rock graduated from Northport High School in 1994. Later on, he studied fine arts from Boston University, getting his bachelor’s degree in 1998. While at Boston University, his talents were recognized by the University management owing to his active participation in different co curricular activities, and his name was also included in Boston University’s Wall of Fame, where other renowned people like Bill O’Reilly and Howards Stern also have their names engraved.
Aesop stepped into the world of professional singing in mid 1990s when he started rapping. He was interested in music right from childhood and his family always supported him as a singer. According to him, he was influenced in his early life by KMD, BDP, Public Enemy and Run DMC. While struggling financially and working as a waiter at a local restaurant, he released two of his initial EPs titled Music for Earthworms and Appleseed EP in 1997 and 1999 respectively. The EPs gained popularity among the underground indie rap and hip hop lovers, and his increasing fan following made him prominent in the eyes of commercial groups including the recording companies. He signed his first record label deal in 1999 with Mush and released his first studio album the next year i.e. in 2000 titled Float. The debut album also included his associated acts with guest stars like Slug, Dose One and Vast Aire, and was both critically and commercially acclaimed.
After his successful first album, Aesop switched his recording label and entered a contract with Definitive Jux, more commonly known as Def Jux, releasing his second album Labor Days in 2001. The album gained remarkable success, with some of its songs becoming extraordinarily popular, including Daylight. The album was focused on the ethical and cultural issue of wage slaves and labor in American society. The song Daylight also became conspicuous after being featured in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4, providing Aesop Rock an extra chunk of recognition.
After the release of his second album, Aesop Rock decided to produce his own recordings, and released his third album himself, titled Bazooka Tooth in 2003. Aesop collaborated with his friends at Def Jux for the production of this album, and his associated acts in this album included those with El-P, Party Fun Action Committee, Camp Lo and Mr. Lif. Almost all of these artists had been working in Def Jux previously. The album followed the footsteps of his previous albums in terms of public popularity, and another one of his songs titled No Jumper Cables was featured in Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, which helped in giving his career a boost.
Subsequently, Aesop Rock produced an EP titled Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives and an album titled None Shall Pass in 2005 and 2007 respectively. The analysis of his lyrics by the critics has made a general opinion about them to be abstract and vague, and at times becoming so complex that it is really hard to understand their intended meaning. Aesop often leaves it to the listener to infer what he means, and at times his songs also have lyrics that have some connection with the personal life of the singer. They may also refer to the events he has come across in his lifetime.
Some people also wonder where his stage name Aesop Rock comes from. According to him, Aesop is from a movie where he played a small role, and Rock simply came to make it rhyme in his songs. In short, Aesop Rock Tickets can be your source of ultimate entertainment and an experience worth sharing with friends if you have a good taste for music!
