With Earl Sweatshirt dropping his most recent single “Nowhere2go”  just last week, the anticipation boils over—with the artist himself giving confirmation to a new project titled Some Rap Songs, confirmed to drop Friday, November 30.

We foreshadow that this project will be one that pays homage to the long hiatus he has taken, respectfully so. While spitting unconventional and flighty bars that leave you in a whirlwind, Earl teams up with Navy Blue, an associate of New York-based collective titled Slums NYC on latest single “The Mint”.

With last album I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside being released in 2015, we also sense that Earl is now riding a new wave of his own, spitting slanted and off balance bars that lack the conventional cadence that we typically hear most rappers deliver. Earl has always been a musician that moves differently than most—taking into account that if he needs time away from the spotlight to focus on more essential aspects of life; I.E., his reality, the state of his mental health and underlying happiness, then he can do that with no hesitation. What we’re receiving now is an introduction to a new & improved Earl that we’ve all been patiently waiting for, creating a newfound confidence in his reverent artistry that we all look forward to relishing in very soon.
