Aesop Rocks; John Darnielle Raps

Well, maybe he doesn't exactly rap, but still, the head Mountain Goat himself drops a verse on literate rapper Aesop Rock's upcoming album None Shall Pass out August 28th. It's really interesting to hear his yelping vocals placed over throbbing hip-hop beats, and somehow the half-spoken/sung passage makes for an unlikely collaboration that totally works. Check it out at the 3:17 mark.

In other tMG/hip-hop news (I can't believe I just started a sentence with the words "In other tMG/hip-hop news") check out this blog post on Popsheep that likens R. Kelly to JD. One of the most hilarious things I've read in ages.
