Aesop Rock meets A$AP Rocky
What do Aesop Rock and A$AP Rocky have in common? Essentially nothing, except a hip hop career and a similar moniker. A$AP Rocky is a Harlem native who was launched into fame and signed to a major label in the first few years of his career. Aesop Rock is an underground rapper from Long Island who is signed to an independent label.
They finally crossed paths, though, when Hot 97 on-air personality Peter Rosenberg and Brother Ali brought them together backstage at Rock The Bells last weekend in San Francisco. Complex magazine noted that when Rocky first came on the scene, he was often mistaken for Aesop Rock. After Brother Ali and Rosenberg led Aesop to Rocky's dressing room, the two artists embraced. Rocky later posted a photo of the moment to his Instagram with the caption "AESOP ROCKY X A$VP ROCKY.......TOO RARE BRUH BRUH."
So which do you prefer - Aesop or A$AP?
