"Malibu Ken" by Malibu Ken (Aesop Rock and Tobacco)
Just because something is different or someone doesn’t “get it,” doesn’t mean its value as art is any less significant. I’d argue that the ability to apply a confectionary musical coating to a robust savory meal of lexicon mastery is just the level of Willy Wonka madness needed in this world. Don’t let the animated nature of Malibu Ken obscure the beauty of the intellectual verbal artistry that permeates throughout.
