Oh shhiiiitttt, it’s time to rejoice my fellow swaggsters! Today marks the return of teenage prodigy Earl Sweatshirt! When he first went missing, there were several rumors floating around the web about what had happened to him. Well It turns out that his mother had sent him away to a Samoan military academy.
It’s been over a year since the mysterious disappearance of the young rapper and everybody has been wondering when he was make his triumphant return. Well, wait no further ladies and gentlemen. Earlier today OFWGKTA leader Tyler, The Creator tweeted that Earl had created a new twitter account, @earlxsweat. Shortly after Earl tweeted that he would release a new song once he reached 50,000 followers. Then about an hour later, he tweet a link to this video -
Shortly after uploading the above video and having other members of OFWGKTA tweet about the return of the Early Man, he reached 50,000 followers. Staying true to his word, Earl upload a new track entitled “Home” to his Tumblr page. After all this time, it would appear that things are finally back to normal in the wolf gang.
However, rumors are starting to surface suggesting that while Earl may be back, he may not be currently rapping with Odd Future. The basis of these rumors are from a series of tweets by Tyler, Domo Genesis, and others. Some of Tyler’s recent tweets consist of things like “‘I’ve never been excited and angry at the same time until today“, “Thebe… I mean Earl Has a twitter“, “Whatever“, “I can’t do this shit B…”, and “Fuck everything else…. This shit sucks yall have no idea”. While Domo tweeted, “and Im not talking about the Earl situation, Im as clueless as you are”, “This is so crazy yo, but I am glad he’s home though….”, and “Damn I don’t even know what to think”.
It is also worth noting that OF will be releasing a mixtape pretty soon that according to Tyler doesn’t feature Earl. So, I have no clue what is going on in OFWGKTA right now, but it seems kind of open ended in a certain light. Either way, I hope everything is good cause it’d be a bummer to have their reunion spoiled so quickly.
