If the lyrics carried weight in gold, the Long Island native would be the richest rapper alive today -- ask Genius' analyst Matt Daniels.
Nothing typifies the introspective nature of his music than his 2012 post-divorce LP Skelethon, a record that rose from the ashes of his split from his wife of five years and Dirty Ghosts guitarist/vocalist Allyson Baker.
Delving into his back catalog, the single One of Four (Thank You) off his Daylight EP from a decade earlier sees Aesop pen one of rap's most poignant verses. Dedicated to his then-boss El-P, real name Jamie Meline, the lyrics of the song reads:-
"JAMIE, I killed the robots and I'm sorry
Broke down in front of you, embarrassed
But you lent a heart and hand that only you could
You're one of my best friends and yes I'd take that bullet for you,
That's my word, which is about all I have left"
In just a matter of a stanza, the Zero Dark Thirty rapper provides a profound insight into his personal life by showing off his gratitude towards his boss-cum-friend in the first two couplets and emphasizing the value of his words (lyrics) - from one rapper to another - in the following line.
