Earlier this year, a piece of a random old Earl Sweatshirt track called “Rats” made its way to the internet. Word was that Tyler, The Creator produced the track for Earl back in 2010, when he was Odd Future’s enfant terrible, before he disappeared for all that time. Now, there’s a longer version of the song, purportedly the full one, making its way to the internet. It’s a mean, bloodthirsty song, the sort of thing we won’t hear from Earl ever again. Check it out below.

Earl has matured into a truly great rapper, but he doesn’t rap like this anymore, and sometimes I miss it.
