Aesop’s new single ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘ from his upcoming album Skelethon is mesmerizing. Aesop continues to create a new cryptic rap language comprised of seemingly random diction. Yet, this diction is not random my friends, it is carefully crafted by Aes himself. The phonetics of his word choice construct a lightspeed flow that moves the song along in a surprisingly organized way. I attempted to decipher these lyrics by listening to the song over and over and guessing them. I am 100% sure I screwed most of it up, how about you be the boss of that? Maybe even try your hand at it…

they did not know how long they had been there

they did not know how long they had been there

they did not know how long they had been there

they did not know how long they had been there

they did not know how long they had been there

unsigned hype front nine never know its flurry zero dark dirty

zero friends minotaur fugly stepchild

a bloke once jumped over plunging necklines

up besides tongue tied hungry enzymes

devolved into mothmen munching textiles punisher

out past goats on back tenth fried worms chubbier

brown grass both sides 

came through, man made tools

land a cane bandaids mandrake root

pindle on a broomstick pancake shoes

in a handshake proofed campaign cant lose cant aim

smoke out moles like a force of nature

break fortune return to his favor swiftly

maybe in the form of a nest egg

maybe in the form of a tesla death ray

youre a solid gold scene with something better to celebrate

the powder on a face like a flat foot on jelly day

m-m-more compass old bat shit

spinnin in the shadows of a moor of magnets

are we supportin the artist or enabling the addict

i mean

i guess it matters to me

i wish it mattered to you

and with thousand virtues kick the same bucket like chinatown turtles

roving packs of elusive young become choke-lore riders over boosted drums

in the terrified face of a future tongue

(down)down from a hunt-able surplus to one

down from a hunt-able surplus to one

(down)down from a hunt-able surplus to one

down from a hunt-able surplus to one

(down)down from a hunt-able surplus to one

check his own breakneck pulse over colors in a dream

met a milk sugar skulls in the rain

glamorized melting

gotta buy a levy made of that towel silting

quarter up aheaded by the kill screen

no corner cut no built team only a particularly menacing

angle perpendicular to everything

boys room cherry bomb boy goon very much runnin with the devil in the metal drum

hello

heres where a tale of caution pounce caught the nails to bootlegs a hawk went

sore tooth neverminds scored a goal spin hearts on sleeves and their heads on poles

arm in the mall fish uplift like a business card from a jar at the mall

ant-like androids dream in a carpet applause

get stuffed with cartoon cigars

gold pack neti pot home to roost around folked back dinner what they most lampoon

shook to the fevered brow and broke ankles

daisy

declawed pound now thank you bade me

failed all basic training but i spent a couple groundhogs days with a changling

silhouette the gods last cigarette

anything less would be ri-goddamndiculous

roving packs of elusive young become choke-lore riders over boosted drums

in the terrified face of a future tongue

(down)down from a hunt-able surplus to one

down from a hunt-able surplus to one

(down)down from a hunt-able surplus to one

down from a hunt-able surplus to one

(down)down from a hunt-able surplus to one

Hey there! Haven’t posted in like a year…

Check out this vector portrait of Jean-Michel Basquiat I recently created!

Took me a day or two to finish this. Lately I have been really interested in this artist who died back in the ’80s after an early career filled with fame and fortune. I advise you to check out the 2010 documentary on him called The Radiant Child. You don’t have to be really big into art to enjoy the film, as it more deals with the artists interesting and dramatic life.

This past year has been pretty crazy..I have been loaded with work from my two jobs and college. Yet one thing that has kept me grounded with the graphic design world has been my Bear Pong T-shirts.  I got the tees printed from my friends at Real Thread. I printed a run of them on Black Tultex tees using waterbased inks. Buy it at my etsy shop!
