    Aesop Rock Lines Up Tour, Limited Edition Sneaker - And hints at a slew of new projects [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Aesop Rock has finally revealed what he's been up to lately. In a post on his MySpace page, the rapper wrote, "It's been a busy 'break' from touring, and I should have a bunch of shit popping up in different places soon." Among said bunch of shit are "guest spots, collabs, writing, and production gigs," as well as some design work for Upper Playground's Adidas Originals series. The limited edition sneaker line is rolling out a new pair of shoes every Thursday evening starting July 17, with kicks coming from Aesop and such noted artists as Sam Flores, David Choe and Herbert Baglione. An incredibly vague teaser for the shoes can be found here.

    Now that Aesop's got all of this work out of the way, the rapper/producer is hitting the road in August and September, with dates running from August 15 in Boston to September 22 in Bend, OR. Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz are opening all dates.
