Definitive Jux’s prolific superhero Aesop Rock is poised for a massive, two-month North American tour with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz. Cage, Blockhead, Black Moth Super Rainbow, and The Octopus Project will also also be present for some dates.

Aesop’s been busy with a lot more than just rhyming over backpack-friendly beats. Within the last year he has released a 45-minute mix for Nike, collaborated with visual artist Jeremy Fish on a short story, and scored two short films. Now he’s touring with psych-pop outfits and headlining gigantic venues. If you’ve missed the Rock before, now’s your chance.
