Earl Sweatshirt has announced his first full length tape since 2015’s I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. It’s dropping in nine days, and it’s called Some Rap Songs. He first hinted at the release in mid-November with the single ‘Nowhere2go’. Today, he dropped a second single titled ‘The Mint’ featuring Navy Blue, produced by Black Noi$e.
In a statement to press, Earl revealed that much the album will address the loss of his father, Keorapetse Kgositsile. “Me and my dad had a relationship that’s not uncommon for people to have with their fathers, which is a non-perfect one. Talking to him is symbolic and non-symbolic, but it’s literally closure for my childhood. Not getting to have that moment left me to figure out a lot with my damn self.”
Earl’s third full length release is scheduled to hit streaming platforms November 30. Listen to ‘The Mint’ and ‘Nowhere2go’ below.
