Earl's Free, Let Him Be

Kelefah Sanneh of The New Yorker got in touch with both of Earl Sweatshirt's parents as well as Earl and has written an interesting article about the 17 year old prodigy.

Any fan of OF should be forced to read this article. If you are a fan of Earl's, you need to realize you are probably doing more harm than good in respect to your constant freedom cries. What makes this situation more complex is the fact that his "best friend" Tyler is fueling and targeting the hate towards Earl's mother. I feel sorry for her and the fact that she has to remain anonymous is testement to that.

Psyched for him to come back. Caught odd future this weekend in NY and the only people that were good were Tyler and Syd. Hodgy was alright but the rest of that crew was horrendous. I feel when Earl comes back he is going to add so much more to the show

No, you'll have to just pick up the single issue at a book store - an 8000 word article will be worth the cost.

Truth. I just feel kinda stupid, I've never bought or seen The New Yorker so I didn't know if it was readily available near me haha.

Boarders or Barnes will have it for sure. I'm almost sure it's around 5 bucks...they always have great feature stories. Great writers.

Earl's my favorite, never felt any hate towards his mom. Hopefully he'll come back soon and people will forget all about it.

This is seriously one of the most incredible things I've ever read. The insight into Earl and all of OF is amazing.

Kid's way more talented than the rest of the folks in OF, hopefully when he's ready, he gets back into rapping.
