Abrasive as fuck and they all
Pay me, I'm chuckling
Cross-faded in public
Although Earl’s music and persona exude violence and aggression, labels still want his music. Thus it should be no surprise he’s drunk and high (“cross-faded”) in public.
“Cross-fading” is also a method for transitioning from one musical track to another, creating a double entrendre.
“Cross-faded” is being drunk and high at the same damn time.
