Aesop Rock just shared a new video for “Dorks,” a standout track from his acclaimed new album The Impossible Kid (out last Friday on Rhymesayers) where he goes in on the idolatry of music culture against a set of visuals by Rob Show. Check out the video here:

It’s dropping in conjunction with the first date of Aesop’s tour with Rob Sonic (with support from Homeboy Sandman). Tickets can be found here (http://bit.ly/TIKtour) and full dates below.

This week he announced that all proceeds from the NC stops on the tour would be donated to LGBT non-profit HB2. Full statement follows: “All proceeds from the Carrboro and Charlotte, North Carolina stops of the Impossible Kid tour will be donated to Equality NC – a statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for LGBT North Carolinians. The discriminatory HB2 law is shameful. We felt that cancelling the show outright would not represent our fanbase who also stand against such injustices, and hope that by contributing to the fight locally we can do our small part in a much larger mission. Please consider visiting http://equalitync.org, and donating to the cause. Thank you.”
