Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ian Matthias Bavitz (born June 5, 1976), better known by his stage name Aesop Rock, is an American hip hop artist and producer. He was at the forefront of the new wave of underground and alternative hip hop acts that emerged during the late 1990s and early 2000s. He is signed to El-P's Definitive Jux label and is a current member of The Weathermen. Regarding his name, he said: "I acquired the name Aesop from a movie I had acted in with some friends. It was my character's name and it sort of stuck. The rock part came later just from throwing it in rhymes." Bavitz was born and raised in Northport, Long Island, New York to his father Paul and mother Jameija. His mother is Jewish[citation needed]. Ian has two brothers: Chris (born 1975) and Graham (born 1977). Ian, along with his siblings, was raised Catholic but later on in his life became agnostic. Bavitz attended Northport High School in 1990 and graduated in 1994. He is also a graduate of Boston University. He studied fine arts and eventually acquired his bachelors in 1998.show more
