2012's Skelethon marked the first entirely self-produced album for Aesop Rock, with additional instrumentation and back-up vocals from the likes of Allyson Baker (Dirty Ghosts), Hanni El Khatib, Nicky Fleming-Yaryan, Rob Sonic, and the Grimace Federation, as well as scratch performances provided by longtime friend and collaborator DJ Big Wiz. Starting off by touching on the death of a close friend, subject matter wades through subsequent losses, jostled memories, relationships gone awry, and the occasionally amusing, if futile, attempts we make to cope with these things. There is light humor in the darkest corners, juxtaposed with pitch black in the jokes. With Kimya Dawson as its sole vocal collaborator, Skelethon is packed with Aesop's unique handle on interweaving imagery and urgency together in what proves to be the centerpiece of his catalog thus far.

"Aesop Rock has a voice unlike any other in music, a hyper drawl that can swallow entire words whole" - Spin

"One of underground hip-hop's most talented." - Pitchfork

"Indie rap's wordiest wordsmith." - Rolling Stone
