Earl Sweatshirt

Recording Artist
Nationality: American / Age: 19 / Discipline: Hip-Hop
One year following the ‘Free Earl’ mania, Earl Sweatshirt has sprung from the status of Odd Future accessory into a poised and arresting new artist. The youthful face of conscious rap in ironic packaging, Earl came forth with a matured understanding of wordplay and complex rhymes that reverberated through the tonality of 2013’s Doris. In August the Los Angeles-based artist presented listeners with gratifyingly imperfect beats. It’s these beats that are paradoxically shadowed by illuminating subject matter, paired with collaborators including The Neptunes, RZA, BADBADNOTGOOD and others.
