Watch Earl Sweatshirt’s Live Debut With Odd Future

Last night, Odd Future played a show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. And for the first time ever, the long-absent Earl Sweatshirt joined them onstage, to general pandemonium. Earl disappeared to a Samoan reform school almost two years ago, just before Odd Future made their internet-addled breakthrough; they weren’t even playing shows when he left. And it’s a whole lot of fun to watch him get to soak in all that adulation for the first time, and for the rest of the crew to enjoy the moment. Below, we’ve got video of Earl making his onstage return and performing his freestyle over Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade,” as well as “Kill,” and the whole crew doing the posse cut “Oldie.” Watch it all below.

The return:

I’ve long wondered how Earl’s dense super-raps would work in the context of Odd Future’s anarchic live show. Turns out: Really well!
