It's Earl, Mr. Lateshift, rapist in training

from Earl Sweatshirt (Ft. BrandenBeatBoy) – Stapleton Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A different take on the first line of the first verse, in which he was “Mr. Early Bird”

Rapists generally operate at night, hence Mr. Lateshift. He still needs practice though, which he has said before. Raping may be a metaphor for rapping (only one letter apart!), since this is Earl’s first album so he’s still “in training”
