Earl Sweatshirt Returns With “Some Rap Songs”

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.
