After years of performing live together and appearing on each other's solo albums, critically acclaimed mc's/producers Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic, along with DJ Big Wiz, come together as Hail Mary Mallon and deliver their Rhymesayers debut Are You Gonna Eat That?. The name and album title are inspired by Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary, the first person in the U.S. identified as a healthy carrier of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever. Mary Mallon was presumed to have infected 53 people, three of whom died, over the course of her career as a cook. She spent three years in quarantine, which is where she died.

Are You Gonna Eat That? is full of powerful dense production and witty word play courtesy of Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic. Add some turntable wizardry from DJ Big Wiz and this trio is destined to be as infectious as Typhoid Mary herself.

No problem.

I'm really looking forward to this album as well.

I'm definitely getting a physical copy come June.

Cover art is sick.

Rhymesayers has some pretty innovative packaging ideas.

i think cus Aesop doesnt get any love around here lol. also people arent too familiar with Rob Sonic. even tho he dropped 5 albums on Def Jux. 2 solo rap albums, and 3 live band ones under the name Sonic Suns

albums a 5/5 from me. exceeded all my expectations, and my expectations were high. first thing; it's clear as fuck, the production, engineering, mixing, scratches, to audio quality. Aesop has had previous criticism about his beats drowning his lyrics, but not at all here.

both M.C's spat lava all over their own beat works (produced entirely by Rob and Aes). chemistry with these two on this album is amazing. This is the kind've shit i wanna hear when i throw on a modern rap album.

favourite track (so far) - Garfield.. shit sounds like a prime El-p beat
