Aesop Rock, deft MC of the Def Jux family, brought his Bazooka Tooth down to Miami for a performance at downtown’s I/O Lounge. Guests and labelmates Mr. Lif (see photos) and C-Rayz Waltz contributed to Aesop’s characteristically humorous performance and fed off of the energy of the uber-packed crowd. FYI: Watch your back, though, next time you blaze at a hip hop show at I/O. Security’s really not feeling it.

There are more photos in the hard copy edition. Sorry, not sure what happened. – Ed.
