It’s been five years since Aesop Rock’s last album, None Shall Pass, but his new release, Skelethon, is imminent, and now we’ve got the second video to be released in suport of that album. Compared to the relatively sedate “Zero Dark Thirty,” “ZZZ Top” is pure action. Aes has only a cameo in this clip; it stars Chinese martial arts legend Hao Zhihua (credited here as Patty Li) who fights off a group of thugs, scored by Aes’s cinematic beats, disjointed flow and nicotine-scarred voice. Check it out.
