Aesop Rock Makes A Triumphant Return With A New 'Rogue Wave' Video

But it's wrapped up in the sadness.

The elusive Aesop Rock is back with a new video, "Rogue Wave", the Rhymesayers MC's first new single since last year, Malibu Ken project and the first single as a solo artist from the year 2018, "Klutz."
