So it looks like we’re not doing release dates anymore.
Drake dropped If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late by surprise and Kendrick Lamar hit us with To Pimp a Butterfly a week early. Now Earl Sweatshirt is in on the hip-hop surprise sweepstakes.
A new Earl album titled I Don’t Like S**t, I Don’t Go Outside has appeared on iTunes with a release date of March 23. To further prove this is not a hoax, there’s a song named “Grief” available. Earl hasn’t changed up too much; the beat is as dark as ever and the lines are still lethal (“Dealing with the stomach pains just from birthin’ n***as’ s**t”). Dash, Ratking’s Wiki, Na’kel and Vince Staples are the features on this 10-track project.
So look for Earl to deliver. On a side note, what a great past two months it’s been in hip-hop. It definitely wasn’t like this last year.
