Earl Sweatshirt Reveals Collaborators on Upcoming Solo Album
Now, taking to his Twitter, Sweatshirt revealed the entire list of contributors. As could be expected, it's pretty heavy on Odd Future features, with appearances from Tyler, the Creator, Domo Genesis and Frank Ocean. Other than that, there are appearances from Pharrell Williams, the Neptunes, the Alchemist and others.
As for the subject matter, the rapper confirms previous reports that he's moved on from pure shock value. "I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some," he writes, adding, "I hope I lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause I rapped about raping girls when I was 15."
Here's Sweatshirt's full statement, taken straight from his Twitter:
You wanna know why im not in europe with the squad? Im finishing this album. Im just trying to make pretty music. Everyone whose favorite song off EARL was epar or whatever might be pretty bummed. Everyone with 666 or KTA or some sort of stupid hashtag like "hey look im crazy" in their bio might be pretty bummed too. I anticipate a loss of fans. I also anticipate gaining some. So. You know. Yeah. I hope i lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me cause i rapped about raping girls when i was 15. I fucking love how it sounds. And uhh. Thats what matters Im gonna go out on a limb and say that you can hear the progression. Christian Rich // The Neptunes // Tyler, The Creator // randomblackdude // Domo Genesis // Vince Staples // Tyler, The Creator // BBNG // Pharrell Williams // Thundercat // Ommas Keith // Frank Ocean // And Earl Sweatshirt. Thats the list of folks who did work on _____. Oh and samiyam and alchemist!!!!! Oh yeah and casey veggies!! And matt and syd. What if i got kidnapped and murdered by crazy nicaraguan killers before anyone could hear it. I'd be bummed. What if tom cruise killed me for being extra'd out. Its funny cause alchemist is also better at rapping than everyone. Its actually fucked up. Uzowuru just stopped me from dropping the album title.
One he drops his yet-to-be-titled solo effort, Sweatshirt is expected to drop a collaboration with the Internet producer Matt Martians and an album with Tyler, the Creator called EarlWolf.
