With a name, for example Some rap songsThe Earl Sports Shirt is obviously exaggerated for the reputation of the industry of art. It's authentic, not tricks, but in a way that does not try to focus on its authenticity. Earl calls his last album, 2015 I do not like shit, I did not go out, his dissertation about himself, but he obviously does not attempt to impose a similar burden on this record. Marking it in its simplest sense, protecting against the surrounding hype without compromising its severity. To really put it in the simplest way: he's deep in his bag.
Three years since I do not like shit, I did not go outErl's life has gone a long way: his father died this year, triggering a visit to Johannesburg and again communicating with his family; he lost his old collaborator and friend, Mac Miller, and promoted a link with a new MC community. The album reflects not only constant maturing, but also re-calibration: a new commitment to discover personal and general truths and reaffirm his pleasures of songs in search of comfort. This record has hitherto been the densest of Egypt, but is tied to samples of fast and rigorous sampling, which makes it very short. Here are five things to listen to for your first spins Some rap songs.
"I'm with MIKE and Med"
When a colleague, Earl Sweatshirt has created cooperative relationships and significant friendships with new class-like musicians. His name – underground several of these players in all Some rap songs, and it's not a coincidence. The back and shoulder ciphers with these guys – mostly New Yorkers – had a significant impact on his music. Letters are composed of genre-makers and classicists.
There is Navy Blue (or Sage Elsesser), a pro-scooter turns rapper credited to the art direction I do not like shit, I did not go out, who was once Ērla's roommate (Sage is the poem in this record); MIKE, an introspective teenager from Bronx, who became an Earl mentee from OF aluminum, bought one of her early mixtapes online and received personal thanks to you; Medhane, Brooklyn Ripper, half a duo of Medslaus with producer Sluson Malone called Jasper Marsalis; Mach-Hommy, the mysterious Jersey rapper for which Earl has produced blows; Gio Escobar, who, as a cornerstone helper, creates music that covers the entire black and brown diaspora community. Some of them are guests, others were only his thoughts or around it, but these artists had a clear impact Some rap songs. You can hear it at your disposal: in some songs it's so cold and, when calculating Mach, is almost analytic in its precision; In other cases, he is as emotional and self-evident as MIKE. It gives your one-off perspective a new dimension.
Erl sends a new sound
To do this, sound the palette Some rap songs is also largely a showcase for those who have surrounded Earl in recent years: Denmark Vessey, Standing on the Corner, Black Noi $ e, Booliemane and Ade Hakim all contributed to music for the album. Part of the production is not far from the kind of Earl, which was Macham. In general, the record seems to occupy its musical notation from the Sochi post-war scientist Red burns project, fragmentation of MIKE May God bless your dreams, and the Knxwledge glitchy yet earthy beat tape catalog. The bumps are tight, and Earl described Vulture as "a snake that eats your tail." Most refer to a slightly vintage hip-hop feeling. Unlike dank sound IDLS, IDGO, which at times seemed almost without light Some rap songs There is a breed to burst, an experience that, unlike clicking on different View-Master images. The style of the glittering fragment and the vague movement of summarizing snapshots in a long played piece originated from bonds.
Short tracks have taken over many repertoire albums this year, largely due to the superfluous writing and streaming economy that prefers large albums. But Earl is not a stranger to keep it short and sweet: at a glance and concision was the strengths of 2015 I do not like shit, I did not go out. He once said: "Flexing is able to say the least with a few words." He applies his efficiency philosophy to this 15-second 25-minute album, keeping many records below the two-minute mark. This is an album-oriented musician product that continues to appreciate the time of its listeners. The minimum long, mysterious word "Loosie" is packed from the front to back with the rape, appearing to the middle of Earl. By Wayne, he almost looted the entire Earl Sweatshirt mythos.
Most of the cuts Some rap songs were written before the death of Ērl's father Keorapetse Kgosits, but even those who do not work sadly reflect his family. For Playing Possum, the two of his older public-speaking spots are tied to each other. His mom has a presence throughout the record, often with some kind of supportive ability. Over time, I will only improve, that's what my mother says, "he calls Azucar, adding later:" My mom said she had experienced my father. "
Some songs referring to Kgošitsil largely avoid its complicated relationship with his son. The exception is "Peanut", in which Ehrl coordinates his father's losses before they have the opportunity to find out their problems. The song is one of the most painful moments of the album, written with amazing clarity. "His removal from the grave could not help, but feel from the place / bless my pop, we sent him away and an hour later / still a blow, it beat me in the heart of somewhere in the range." Earl opened a month, looking for closure. "Do not be afraid that this moment left me to invent a lot with my damn myself," he said. There are still plenty left to understand.
