I'm cool with Earl having his own thread. He stands apart from the rest of that crew IMO. They're all pretty talented, but something about Earl is mysterious and alluring. Maybe I only think that because he resembles a black Bonnie Prince Billy.

was top 5 in the rolling rap poll, it doesn't get any more huge than that

but yeah i'm not cool with it being its own thread bc he looks like will oldham, put it back in ofwgkta. he's on most of their records & we don't need to atomize them as soon as we discover them.

I just listened to the Earl album again after a few weeks off and holy shit, my on-again off-again relationship with hip hop is back on, big time. Between this and the new Ghostface, I'm feelin' all 1994 up in here. But seriously, damn, this album. Fuckin' perfect. Like 36 Chamberz perfect.

i think the goon cru should make a thread were ppl can apologize for not liking rap enough, or not liking the right rap, or not liking the right rap for the right reasons, or not liking the right rap for the right reasons at the right time

Time damaging my ties
Who turn to get up? Get dude turned to dinner quick
You circus niggas, you turning into tricks

Dealing with the stomach pains just from birthing niggas' shit
Cut the grass off the surface
Pray the lawnmower blade catch the back of a serpent, nigga, shit

tyler does some audible backing vocals on one song ("off top") and left brain produced one song but even the rest of the beats are all earl

i think he's clearly outgrown them (thank fucking god)

Van Horn Street, Thursday, 30 April 2015 00:48 (three years ago) Permalink

I saw him about a month ago and he was pretty bad. Couldn't sustain any energy for more than a song or two, couldn't get the crowd going, didn't even really have a grasp of the basics of putting on a rap show (his DJ fucked up song cues a lot, too). Shockingly amatuerish, all around.

Evan R, Thursday, 30 April 2015 13:48 (three years ago) Permalink

Didn't help that it was one of the youngest, most inhibited crowds I've ever seen at a rap show. Lots of gangly high school kids who worship this guy but expressed their reverence with silence.

Evan R, Thursday, 30 April 2015 13:50 (three years ago) Permalink

sounds like an indie audience, ew

Couldn't sustain any energy for more than a song or two

found this to be true of the album tbh. dirge after dirge after dirge, a real chore to get through

i'm sure the lyrics are ~really deep thoughts but he doesn't make them sound captivating at all

lex pretend, Thursday, 30 April 2015 14:08 (three years ago) Permalink

the whole album is a dirge but it's potent rather than enervated. so oppressive it's tactile, blotting out the space

I liked that last album til Things Happened and I lost my entire saved stuff, but I was playing some loosie playlist this morn and ohoho, this stood out, my mother busted in my house midway through and we drunk coffee and ate angel cake, but I noted this one (out of the 3 I heard that day) as the one to come back to, and yeah it's awesome, maybe not if you're into Earl for the rhymes but, that loop was in my skull all afternoon, drinking coffee with my maw and trying to stay genteel.
