As Earl Sweatshirt continues to pave the way for his new album, he keeps us fiendin’ with another gem in the form of Tabula Rasa. The track is co-produced by Theravada and Rob Chambers, with a feature from Armand Hammer. The album, Sick!, is due for release on 14 January.
Can’t Do This Alone is the latest track to be taken from the now officially released Wiki album, Half God. The track features fellow NY artist, Navy Blue, who is at the production helm for the duration of the album. As well as Navy’s presence, Half God also features Earl Sweatshirt, MIKE and Remy Banks, among others. You can watch the video above, then check the rest of the album below. Physicals and downloads are available from Bandcamp.Continue reading “Wiki ft. Navy Blue: Can’t Do This Alone + LP Stream”

Another treat for Armand Hammers fans this week, as we saw the release of the latest video from their Alchemist produced masterpiece, HARAM. It arrives in the same week that the trio unveiled their experimental film, alongside regular AH artistic collaborator, Joseph Mault, with both releases featuring accompaniments from Earl Sweatshirt. Earl sounds as good as ever on Falling Out the Sky, with woods and ELUCID reaching their usual absorbing heights in his wake. HARAM is out now on Backwoodz Studioz.
New music from The Alchemist, as we ready ourselves for the arrival of his latest EP. Nobles features Earl Sweatshirt and Navy Blue, who trade bars over some triumphant production from Alc. The track is lifted from This Thing of Ours, which is due for release this Friday and also features appearances from Boldy James, Maxo, Pink Siifu and Sideshow. Early digital releases are available now via ALC Records.
Short but sweet is the M.O. on the latest from Earl and Alc, as they deliver 45. Earl sounds more alive than he has done for a while, which is definitely not something I am complaining about, and the sampling is as masterful as ever.
This new Maxo-assisted single from Earl Sweatshirt was released a few days ago and in the process, it reignited calls for a full-length collaboration between him and Alchemist. They reconnect again on Whole World, reminding us of their natural chemistry, with Alc’s sparse bass-heavy production ridden perfectly by Earl’s staggered and meandering flows. Whole World is out now on all streaming and download platforms.
A hefty track here from Quelle Chris and Chris Keys, as they keep the hype up for their forthcoming return to the Innocent Country. On MIRAGE, they are joined by a superb list of guests, as Earl Sweatshirt, Denmark Vessey, Merrill Garbis and Big Sen all add their flavours to the mix. It’s probably my favourite cut from the album yet, with the exception of Sudden Death, which is just a sort of beautiful anomaly. You can stream MIRAGE below and pre-orders for Innocent Country 2 are also available. It’s out on 24 April via Mello Music Group. Continue reading “Quelle Chris & Chris Keys ft. Earl Sweatshirt, Denmark Vessey, Merrill Garbus & Big Sen: MIRAGE”
Nowhere, Nobody is a new experimental short film, that serves as a sort of accompaniment to Earl’s most recent album, Some Rap Songs. The film features appearances from Earl himself, as well as a variety of supporting cast members and a score comprised of songs from the new album. in terms of description, you’re really better off just watching the film yourself and trying to decipher some of the more surreal scenes. Nowhere, Nobody was directed by Naima Ramos-Chapman and Terence Nance. Some Rap Songs is out now on Tan Cressida.
Excellent new release from The Alchemist, as he drafts in a whole wealth of talent on his latest project. The Bread EP features Earl Sweatshirt – the video for which was released last week – alongside appearances from Conway, Westside Gunn, Black Thought and Roc Marciano. Considering the whole thing only weighs in at four tracks – plus four instrumentals – Alc has managed to cram in a hell of a lot of dope. It also features some of the most glorious cover art of 2018. You can stream the Bread EP below, as well as on all the other usual platforms. Continue reading “The Alchemist: Bread EP (Stream)”
