We've been waiting for "Some Rap Songs"


It's been three years since Earl Sweatshirt dropped I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. His missing presence has been felt, and other artists have profited from his influence. There are several new school artists running around claiming to have originated the "emo-rap" genre, but Earl was opening his soul on records long before many of those names were even on the mixtape circuit. Earl has touched down with Some Rap Songs today, after blessing fans with the singles "The Mint" and “Nowhere2go.” 

Speaking with Vulture about the album's title, Earl stated, "Just the concept of brevity. I’ve become … It’s been made evident to me that I’ve become kind of obsessed with simplifying shit, which sometimes can lead to oversimplification. People take a lot of liberties, I feel like. Incomplete shit is really stressful to me, and the concept of unsimplified fractions is really stressful to me.”  The 15-track album features appearances from Earl's parents, Cheryl Harris and Keorapetse Kgositsile. Navy Blue and Standing On The Corner complete the short list of features. Stream Some Rap Songs on Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music now.
