Saturday night, Earl's Twitter feed revealed that the OF recruit's debut will be nothing like his past work.
Planned or unplanned, big news about Earls' first solo albumÂ was leaked via @earlxsweat'sÂ Tweet frenzy this past weekend. In case fans were wondering why he's not with the rest of Odd FutureÂ up in Europe right about now, the L.A. wolf isÂ busyÂ cooking up tracks with aÂ variety ofÂ growing andÂ immenseÂ artists.Â The tweeted list includes more expected OF members and friends like Tyler, The Creator, Domo Genesis, Vince Staples, and Casey VeggiesÂ but also promisesÂ contributions fromÂ Frank OceanÂ andÂ Pharrell Williams.Â
The self-proclaimed ugliest member of OFWGKTADGAFÂ did far more than compensate on his 2010 self-titled mixtape, marking himself as a full blooded lyricist in keeping with the OF reputation. But the rapper quipped on his feedÂ that, âEveryone whose favorite song off EARL was epar or whatever might be pretty bummed.â âEveryone with 666 or KTA or some sort of stupid hashtag like âhey look im crazyâ in their bio might be pretty bummed too.â Apparently Earl just wants to make 'pretty music'Â now, which might mean saying goodbye to the alt cop-slaying narratives that have been his run-of-the-mill. The rapper expects to lose fans when he stops dropping about rape and murder, but the newÂ deal with Columbia Records, paired with Earl'sÂ trigger-happy enthusiasm,Â just mightÂ speak for itself. Â
