Earl Sweatshirt makes his return with the release of Some Rap Songs, which will mark his first full-length project since 2015.
After delivering a pair of singles in “Nowhere2go” and the Navy Blue-assisted “The Mint”, the 24-year-old shared the track list for his highly-anticipated SRS on November 26th.
Outside of an appearance from Navy Blue, Brooklyn-based duo Standing on the Corner will serve up an assist on track No. 6 “Ontheway.” The Chicago native’s parents, Cheryl Harris and Keorapetse Kgositsile — the latter of whom died in January — are also slated to guest on Some Rap Songs deep cut “Playing Possum.”
“Me and my dad had a relationship that’s not uncommon for people to have with their fathers, which is a non-perfect one. Talking to him is symbolic and non-symbolic, but it’s literally closure for my childhood,” Earl said in a press release. “Not getting to have that moment left me to figure out a lot with my damn self.” Michael Saponara
