Alternative hip-hop artist and producer Aesop Rock just dropped the music video for “Tuesday,” a single off of a collaborative project with TOBACCO, according to Aesop Rock’s Instagram post. The song is off of the self entitled album Malibu Ken, and the video is the third to come out since the release of the album, along with “Corn Maze” and “Acid King”.
The video is centered around the life and death of a moldy piece of cheese that becomes endowed with life. We see the caretaker of said piece of cheese struggle through guiding the cheese through various phases of life, from taking care of the cheese as an infant, to dealing with the cheese’s rebellious adolescent years, and to taking care of the cheese on its deathbed. The eerie visuals pair nicely with the ominous tone of the song, and the curious nature of the caretaker of the cheese-come-to-life will surely be reflected among the faces of the viewers of the video.
The collaboration between Aesop Rock and TOBACCO is an intricate pairing of different lyrical and production styles; both artists have collaborated with several artists in the past decade and change, but their debut album Malibu Ken is the first collaboration between the 2 artists.
