Earl Sweatshirt – “Chum”
Earl Sweatshirt, the returning prodigal MVP of Odd Future, posted a new song on the Odd Future Tumblr last night, and it’s a good one. On “Chum,” Earl turns his dizzily eloquent flow inward, talking about his relationships with his parents and his friends, putting internal struggles on the paper. But for all its emo-ness, the track still has some great vintage-Earl moments: “Feeling hard as Vince Carter’s knee cartilage is.” Listen to the track below.
I would straight-up punch a puppy in the face for a new Earl album at this point.
