About Earl Sweatshirt

Thebe Neruda Kgositsile (born February 24, 1994), also known as Earl Sweatshirt, is a rapper, producer, DJ, and a former member of the LA based collective Odd Future.

Earl first met fame when he released his debut mixtape in 2010, Earl. Along with Tyler’s Bastard and the group’s Radical, his debut was released freely on OF’s website, and made the collective rise to prominence, with critical aclaim by the media and a lot of discussion about the controversial nature of the group’s lyrical content.

Due to personal problems, Earl was sent by his mother to spend 2 years in Samoa, at the Coral Reef Academy. In 2012 he would return to his home on Los Angeles, where he would feature in The OF Tape Vol.2 and Frank Ocean’s album debut, channel ORANGE.

In 2013, to much acclaim, Sweatshirt released his first mature work, Doris, which featured production mostly handed by Earl, but also by The Neptunes, RZA, BADBADNOTGOOD, Frank Ocean and Tyler the Creator.

On March 23, 2015, Earl released his sophomore studio effort, I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside, where he would take a more introspective and depressing direction on his content and sound. Most of the trackes were produced by Earl himself, but ex OF colleague, Left Brain, produced one song.

From time to time, he updates his soundcloud with unrealeased tracks.
