In November, Tyler fooled fans and sent the internet into a frenzy when when he tweeted that Earl was back in L.A recording his new album with Tyler; turned out it was just a prank.
The Earl Sweatshirt saga has been going for almost a year now. In April, Complex Magazine claimed to have tracked him down at the Coral Reef Academy in Samoa. They used clues in the lyrics, Facebook musings and a tip off from a student who also attended the school. Reports suggested that the 17 year old was sent against his will by his mother who didn’t want him involved in the Odd Future circle.
