New Artist Of The Week – Earl Sweatshirt

Posted: January 15, 2013 by woody in Artist of the Week

The name says it all. My favorite member of OFWGKTA (no offense to Tyler), who for you bird brains out there is Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, and if you have to ask you can’t afford it, is one of the most intriguing new artists in the game. Never have I heard a dude, who is 18 might I add, filled with so much angst and reflect it in his raps since I purchased the first CD of my life (Slim Shady LP). This guy reminds me so much of Eminem it’s unbelievable. Just incredible wordplay that makes you lather, rinse, and repeat like its your job. The sky is the limit for this young man as long as he doesn’t go do something retarded like commit suicide, which honestly I wouldn’t be surprised by judging from his lyrics. Regardless, he has a CD on the way titled “Doris”, and the first track that is rumored to be on the project was released a few months ago. This is “Chum”, and just one watch will not only show you the lyrical talent this guy possesses, but also just how truly fucked in the head he is. Gotta love it. Great video. Dude says, “feelin as hard as Vince Carter’s knee cartilage is”. Unreal.
