As the New York rapper and Danny Brown buddy ASAP Rocky enjoys a meteoric and lucrative rise, the similarly named but altogether very different New York rapper and Danny Brown buddy Aesop Rock has mostly been flying under the radar lately. Earlier this year, he got together with his friends Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz to release Are You Gonna Eat That?, a perfectly solid album under the group name Hail Mary Mallon. And now, the group has made a grainy, low-budget video for the album track “Grubstake,” in which all three guys go eating at the San Francisco establishment that shares the song’s name. Aesop may not be getting the sextuple-digit record deals, but at least he looks like he’s having more fun rapping. Watch it below.
Are You Gonna Eat That? is out now on Rhymesayers.
