Now Earl Sweatshirt is Dropping a Surprise New Album
Another day, another surprise hip-hop album release.
Just hours after Kendrick Lamar's sophomore arrived online ahead of schedule, and a month after Drake surprised everyone with his latest album release, Earl Sweatshirt has pulled his own magic trick. The Odd Future rapper's new album I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside has appeared for pre-order on iTunes. For fans who take advantage of the pre-order, "Grief" is being offered as the instant-grat track.
Earl's new 10-track set will drop on March 23, the original date slated for Lamar's To Pimp A Butterful. And like Butterfly, Earl's album rollout has caused some grief.
A ticked-off Earl tweeted a bunch of messages, including a spicy one aimed at Sony Music. "I WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK @SonyMusicGlobal 4 FUCKING UP THE ROLL OUT PROCESS OF MY SHIT. SOMEONE GOTS 2 PAY 4 THEIR MISTAKES ! #SWEAT".
It's almost the same response Top Dawg Entertainment CEO of Anthony Tiffith gave when Kendrick's recording arrived without his consent: "I WOULD LIKE 2 PERSONALLY THANK @Interscope FOR FUCKING UP OUR RELEASE... SOMEBODY GOTS 2 PAY 4 THIS MISTAKE !!!! #TOP"
It's déjà vu, right?
