Earl Sweatshirt recently revealed that […]

Earl Sweatshirt hopped on to Twitter last night (July 29) to hint at possibly changing his rap name. Fans quickly weighed in, with many thinking that the name change was intended so Earl could start a fresh following the rumored split of Odd Future. However, and as Earl described it, fans were just being “hot” […]

If you paid to watch an artist perform, you shouldn’t be putting extra effort to disrupt the performance. That includes stepping on stage for no reason. Earl Sweatshirt had to give a fan his just desserts for that reason.

So it looks like we’re not doing release dates anymore. Drake dropped If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late by surprise and Kendrick Lamar hit us with To Pimp a Butterfly a week early.

  Mike Tyson and Earl Sweatshirt sat down for an interview about their lives, careers, fears and expectations. During the sit-down for Citizens of Humanity , the legendary boxer shared much of his insight with the young Odd Future rapper, who happens to be a 20-year-old. “We don’t know at 20 years old the man we want […]

New York City came out in droves for the 4th Annual Governors Ball at Randall’s Island this past weekend for some great music, free Ben and Jerry‘s ice cream, and excessively priced merchandise. The New York festival also notably, at least for me, upped the number of hip-hop/R&B acts from seven in 2013 to 11 this […]
