Aesop Rock
Wednesday, July 13

Last year, Polygraph's Matt Daniels released a gorgeous data visualization of rapper's vocabularies, ranking hip-hop's finest by the number of unique words used within an artist's first 35,000 lyrics. To no one's surprise, Aesop Rock came in first, with an impressive 7,392 words (DMX rounded out the bottom of the data set, with a Spartan 3,214). With his new album The Impossible Kid, Aesop Rock hones in with some of his darkest and most passionate material to date. With the like-minded and verbose Homeboy Sandman. $18, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.
