INTERVIEW: EARL SWEATSHIRT RETURNS TO HIP HOP WITH PETER ROSENBERG
Speaking of hating on OF, check out this interview with Earl Sweatshirt on his return to the rap game from a hiatus at a Samoan boarding school. Earl talks about his time away during the “free Earl” campaign as bringing some perspective into his life and claims that he is happy it happened.
You can also see some of the high school-boy camaraderie between members of the group as they mock each other for various reasons - including a comment from Earl that Taco is the “Meg [Griffin?]” of the group. Peter Rosenberg draws a great 11 minutes out of the kids.
After seeing a music video like this, how could you hate on Odd Future? These are a bunch of kids doing exactly what they want with their lives and getting paid a boatload of money to do it.
They may get a lot of hate, but when they pull together Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler, The Creator, and even hypeman Jasper for a photoshoot/music video, you see just how much fun these guys (and Syd “tha Dude”) are having together. Also, how did Tyler and Left Brain both break their arms?
PS - Earl might be joining OF for their show in New York tonight…
