Aesop Rock: “Zero Dark Thirty”

Aesop Rock is known for his motley blend of allusions, metaphors, and symbols, and “Zero Dark Thirty” is chock full of them. It’s rap on hard mode, and this cut is no exception. And in contrast to the knife-wielding kung-fu action of “ZZZ Top,” the time-lapsed video for “Zero Dark Thirty” is subdued and arty.
