Earl puts the "ass" in "assassin"

from Earl Sweatshirt – Earl Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Sweatshirt usually rapes girls before he kills them, therefore making his crimes sexual.

Likewise, Earl Sweartshirt is a self-proclaimed ass(hole), and here he is using a play on words to reinforce his title. Because the word “ass” is in “assassin” two times, his point is made even stronger. Also, if you notice the way “assassin” is spelled, it’s “ass” twice and “in” once.

FUN FACT: The word “Assassin” has the same root as the word “hashish”. Crazy right?
