First time I heard Aesop Rock was live @ a show in the Village around ’00 or so. Pretty sure I remember Blockhead chillin in the back with a big ass leg cast, checking the crowd’s reaction. I copped Appleseed that night and remember not being mad on the F train home.

Aesop Rock x Blockhead – Jinx / unreleased

Aesop and I thought , as a cool new years gift, we’d dig up an old song from the vaults and let you all have it. we’ve been digging through the crates (IE: old cassettes with a bunch of old lost songs we never used) and figured now is a better time than ever to do leak one. partially cause this song is officially ten years old now and , until this very moment has maybe been heard by about two people (i’m one of them). This song is called “jinx planet” and it was made in between “float” and “labor days”. i don’t exactly recall why it didn’t make the album but , upon re-listening, it kinda makes sense. not that’s it’s bad but i can see how it it may not have fit into what would eventually become “labor days”. you’ll notice the quality isn’t exactly sparkling but that’s cause this was taken off an old ass cassette. the song itself was recorded on a digital 8-track and never properly mixed so keep that in mind.
