The internet was buzzing today after the possibility that rapping wunderkind Earl Sweatshirt may now actually be ‘Free’, and back with his fellow Odd Future crew members in Los Angeles. A twitter account was set up under the name @earlxsweat, along with a YouTube clip that features Earl encouraging 50,000 users to follow his account if they wanted something more.
Within hours his account hit the 50,000 mark, and surely enough we’ve got a new taste of Earl Sweatshirts flowing lyrics. You can listen to the new song here http://terttlefer.com/
In January, Music Feeds interviewed Syd The Kid who said they have no idea where Earl is and confirmed that it is not a publicity stunt saying:
We don’t (talk about Earl) cause it hurts, he was a member of the family and he’s not here anymore and to everybody else it’s a media stunt, but it’s real, so no, we don’t talk about it (Earl) much.
If in fact Earl is back, then his return comes just in time for the release of Odd Future’s second album which has just been moved forward to a February 20th release date. Either way, it’s great promo for the album and it seems all the Ofwgkta members want to get involved.
