hoopboyhandro Beats that sound like they're steeped in history and culture, with Billy Woods hypnotizing lyricism on top. This album flows very easily and beautifully song to song. Favorite track: Remorseless.

jdupree13 "this world, hard to even take its measure". exquisite social commentary by way of filthy fucking rhymes. similarly to the instant classic 'haram' by armand hammer, 'aethiopes' is a gorgeous, cohesive statement on our american dream/nightmare
Favorite track: Remorseless.

darth_tyrannus_rex Raw, passionate, poetic, and honest: a blend of avant-jazz, free-flowing hip hop, and imagery of the brutal past which led Woods to where he is today. Favorite track: Remorseless.

about

DIGITAL VERSION OF THE ALBUM DROPS ON APRIL 8, 2022.

Aethiopes is billy woods’ first album since 2019’s double feature of Hiding Places and Terror Management. The project is fully produced by Preservation (Dr Yen Lo, Yasiin Bey), who delivered a suite of tracks on Terror Management, including the riveting single “Blood Thinner”. The two collaborated again on Preservation’s 2020’s LP Eastern Medicine, Western Illness, which featured a memorable billy woods appearance on the song “Lemon Rinds”, as well as the B-side “Snow Globe”.
