Okay, so The RZA wasn’t there with Earl Sweatshirt at Syracuse’s Mayfest, but he was on the hook of a new track that Earl premiered in front of a rowdy crowd of SU students, which will most likely appear on Earl’s forthcoming album, Doris. The beat, if you can hear it through the no-fi cell phone recording, does sound kinda RZA-y, but more importantly Earl’s flow rides on top with ease like he always does. Plus, RZA’s hook is, well, filthy.
Earl has been debuting tracks here and there as we wait for confirmed details of his much-anticipated major label debut, Doris. Based on the new songs Earl has been playing, the album will feature Flying Lotus, Mac Miller, Pharrell, RZA, and, of course, several members of the Odd Future crew.
