I DON'T LIKE S**T, I DON'T GO OUTSIDE
More streamlined than ‘Doris’ and ruthlessly focused, the young rapper’s third album is a murky and glitch-ridden journey into introspection, claustrophobic and haze-ridden but absolutely compulsive.
Both deadly serious and winningly self-effacing Earl makes for a compelling guide, making music that’s way beyond his years and right up there with the best that the genre offers. “Earl is a rare talent” – nme, “With nothing to prove and no longer an upstart, Earl sounds, more than ever, simply like himself” 8/10 – pitchfork, “pithily captivating and ruthlessly introspective… a hip-hop landmark” 5/5 - the guardian
sami recommends: bare beats and bars, hookfree and hypnotic; this is the most mature album from earl yet.
