Earl has Some Rap Songs for you.
After a three year hiatus, Earl Sweatshirt is back.
The rapper just released his third studio album, Some Rap Songs, the follow up to his 2015 LP I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt. Some Rap Songs is an interesting album: there are 15 songs, but the runtime on the album is only 24 Minutes.
I hope what people take away is … I guess just brevity. I’m always trying to whittle this shit down … I have to be really thoughtful of what I’m doing. Music is a really powerful thing, and the people that I feel, like, get applauded for the subtlety are the people that care and are aware of the powerful shit that they’re wielding. I’m aware of the fact that [Some Rap Songs] is kind of a hissing thing. There’s a lot of technical imperfections. The track list has gotta be perfect, and the song gotta loop perfect, and I gotta exit before … I really dedicate a lot of myself to not over-rapping.
