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.

  1. So great. Love the new lyrical direction.

  2. I don’t mean to get all rubberjohnny but Odd Future is my shit!

  3. I can get behind this

  4. Awesome, played it nonstop since it dropped. I even got all ‘fanboy’ and sent a tweet about it on Halloween.

  5. tough for me to jump on board with the puppy-punching, as i own a puppy. but i do want an earl album. let’s just say i’d kick a baby for it. i don’t have a kid, so that’s easier for me.

  6. He’s grown…love to see an artist go in a new direction.

  7. Love the growth and development that Earl has acheived as an artist. Hes becoming independant which is going to open a lot of oppertunities for him. Excited to see what his new album “Genossos” is like. In the meantime cop “Chum” off itunes
