Some present impressive lung, some truly learn what a death chant is

from Aesop Rock – Float Lyrics on Rap Genius


Mentioned previously, the empire of Atlantis was completely lost at sea and there are very few references to its history which Rock compares to his music. It’s important to remember that this was his first serious album and he was probably not expecting to receive the acclaim that he gained later in his career.

Aesop is acknowledging here that his music was 1) not easy to come by before the digital sharing revolution and 2) is tough to follow for the average hip hop fan. His fans have, not only, enough patience to search for his music, but also the diligence needed to decipher his rhymes.

He has said that listeners of his music are almost requred to donate something in the process probably referring to time and emotional vulnerability.
