While we assumed that Earl Sweatshirt might have been trolling his fans about the agitation he had caused by the spontaneous album announcement, we find out today in his interview with NPR Music that he was actually unhappy with Columbia for what they did. He had originally planned for the video for “Grief” to go live on his website without any other information, but instead, everything was released that Monday night: the cover, tracklist, features and its release date. He shares with NPR: “Brah, I was devastated,” he told NPR Music. “I was so mad cause it was like — especially because I feel like this is my first album. This is the first thing that I’ve said that I fully stand behind, like the good and the bad of it. I’ve never been behind myself this much. So for them to not treat as importantly as I was treating it was just like — I couldn’t help but to feel a little disrespected, you know?” Regardless of whose fault it was, we feel sorry for Earl.
