New Earl though, is it any good? About to listen to it now.
so haven't had a chance to listen to it properly yet. I listened to like 2 tracks of it on YouTube though and it sounds really interesting...
It's really dense and dark. Fucking love the way he rhymes though, can't get enough.
he was only 15? blimey. tbf i was a right twat when i was 15. people mature and grow, it's just unfortunate for him that that stuff is out there forever.
But 15 year old kids are amongst the most useless forms of humanity out there, nothing valuable comes out of their mouths because they're not finished yet.
but it's quite flawed at points- the instrumentals sometimes fail, his rapping sometimes sounds a bit lazy, some features don't work (there aren't many though). It'll probably grow on me like Doris did.
His first tape is still the best though
Single's really grown on me, though. I found Doris a frustrating listen at first but found myself going back to it quite a lot.
Think he has a lot of talent but has struggled a bit with fame etc. Hope he finds his lane.
If both the follow-ups are of similar standard, they'll easily be among the albums of the year.
All their collabs are so great.
Production is absolutely perfect

love Earl in this in particular
