I have remained in positive and good spirits since I woke up from a 10 day coma in November to the sight of my missing leg. Not going to let it stop me. I don't care what anyone says. It's a long road ahead, but I WILL play drums again. Can't wait to get back on the kit. Couldn't have dealt with this...

Check out a newly surfaced Earl Sweatshirt song, "Mirror," in the replies. The track is a B-side from last year's I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside.
"It's just way more progressive and it's not produced by me," Earl told Pitchfork about the song. "It's just one verse and a hook and I was just snapping on that shit.
