Earl Sweatshirt Interviews Mike Tyson

When Mike Tyson was 20 years old, he became the youngest boxer ever to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. He was also an idiot at that age, as he made sure to tell Earl Sweatshirt repeatedly when Earl, who is currently 20, interviewed Tyson for Citizens Of Humanity. Their conversation touches on each man’s personal story as well as much bigger topics such as world history, sex, war, and spirituality. Tyson takes charge early on and ends up learning a lot about Odd Future, though Earl does fit some good questions in, particularly the one at the end about what age Tyson stopped being happy. It’s a fascinating chat and well worth your time, so read the whole thing here.
