Bestiary is the second studio album by American hip hop group Hail Mary Mallon. The album was released on November 10, 2014, by Rhymesayers Entertainment. He goes on to note that "Rock and Sonic handle all the production, block-rocking and electro-boogieing with the old-school in mind.
Named after the real Typhoid Mary, the left-field hip-hop supergroup Hail Mary Mallon returned with their sophomore effort just as Ebola hysteria was shaking the globe. That's the kind of grim, ironic synchronicity members Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic enjoy, as here, it fuels the key cut "Dollywood," an amusement park ride that turns dark carnival once the MCs notice the carnies and attendees look way too much alike.

Hail Mary Mallon – Bestiary. Label: Rhymesayers Entertainment – RSE0186-1. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Picture Disc, Opholetta Version. Bestiary was not what I expected from the album art. I thought oh shit, Rhtmesayers got a metal act! , then I heard Aesop Rock’s voice and I knew I would be subject to an hour of lyrical acrobatics. As most group rap records for me, nothing really stood out except for the concept of the Concert Fundraiser, sounding like an abandoned Will Ferrel movie script. Bestiary was cool, but this album was a case where the album art stood out more than the actual contents inside of the LP. Reply Notify me Helpful.

Bestiary' is something of a concept album. Here's the twist: the bowling alley they’ve been trying to save has been closed since 1995.
