Provider of the backdrop music
For the crack rock user and the mascot Earl
Earl makes the background music for crack fiends and is known as their mascot because he spits crack.
- Or he could be referencing Backdrop curtains (In theatres) in which he’s talking about providing that finale/encore type shit, since everyone’s always at the edge of their seats waiting for him to come out with a new track.(I know I am).
Earl is also not his real name and he uses the stage name to create a “mascot-like” aura, as many rappers do.
He’s also been known as OF’s mascot at times because of all the media attention he got when he was in Samoa and the long wait for Doris, which increased OF’s fame. And he’s hilarious and ridiculous all the time haha.
Earl is likely referencing his small frame, saying that his very thin and frail appearance makes him a good mascot for crack users.
