EARL SWEATSHIRT - SOME RAP SONGS VINYL (LP)
Release Date: 25th January 2018
Probably the best hip-hop record of 2018 is finally available on vinyl! Earl Sweatshirt of the famed Odd Future brings us his 3rd and potentially greatest record thus far. In the same vein as Pusha T's Daytona (which rivals this for 2018's top hip-hop record), Some Rap Songs cuts against the grain of modern hip-hop records that have become more and more bloated and unnecessarily long, for a short but seriously sweet, carefree collection of stream-of-consciousness hip-hop backed by dusty, soulful beats ala-Dilla. Some rap songs are better than others!
For Fans Of: BLACK MILK, Chuck Strangers, Kendrick Lamar, Death Grips
"Odd Future frontman releases his new 15 track album on Columbia Records. The 15-track project clocks in at 25 minutes total, as most of the songs come in under two minutes. Outside of an appearance from Navy Blue, Brooklyn-based duo Standing on the Corner serve up an assist on track No. 6 Ontheway. The Chicago native's parents, Cheryl Harris and Keorapetse Kgositsile - the latter of whom died in January - guest on Some Rap Songs deep cut Playing Possum."
