Hell ya. Saw it for sale awhile back and should’ve bought it.

Final Thoughts:

The Impossible Kid is Aesop Rock’s most accessible album to date, it’s as if he’s finally hovering over Earth to gather fans so he can take them to the far stretches of the universe. The Impossible Kid is the album that finally got me respecting Aesop Rock to the level that he most definitely deserves. Even though I know I’m gonna catch hate for saying it, Aesop Rock is currently the best Hip-hop artist still making music (choke on your rage Lamar fans). There’s just no denying his uncanny ability to make the English language sound like it’s being broadcast from the third moon of some planet we couldn’t pronounce. This is the album to get on the bandwagon, this is the best album of 2016, this is an album for fans and non-fans alike to collectively sigh and say “Damn, Aesop Rock”.
