Three years in the making, Earl Sweatshirt’s new album Some Rap Songs has officially arrived.
Sitting down with Craig Jenkins, Earl explained the concept behind the title:
Just the concept of brevity. I’ve become … It’s been made evident to me that I’ve become kind of obsessed with simplifying shit, which sometimes can lead to oversimplification. People take a lot of liberties, I feel like. Incomplete shit is really stressful to me, and the concept of unsimplified fractions is really stressful to me. So, with things like the album title, how I structure shit, and even how I write, it was really just like, What is this? The album title was kind of a response to that question.
Listen to the 15-track project in its entirety below.
