‘Hot Dogs’ is a audio/video project celebrating the tangents of a delirious brain over the course of a late-night skate to the store.” –Aesop Rock

The song was written and produced by Aesop Rock. The video was shot and edited by Kurt Hayashi, and features the skateboarding of Jake Gascoyne. All 3 collaborated conceptually to bring “Hot Dogs” to the screen. The digital version of “Hot Dogs” is available now. You can also pre-order the limited 7” vinyl version (500 copies) which features both the song and the instrumental, as well as art/design by Jake Gascoyne. 100% of the proceeds from “Hot Dogs” digital sales and streaming, and all vinyl pre-orders now thru Nov 23rd, will all be donated to http://www.grindforlife.org/ – A charity started by skateboarder Mike Rogers after his second battle with sarcoma cancer. The organization’s mission is to provide financial support to patients and families when traveling long distances to doctors and hospitals. More info can be found on their website.
