Earl Sweatshirt’s Best Guest Verses To Date
“Oldie” – Odd Future
When the video for “Oldie” arrived, the coolest part about it was the return of Earl. His bars on the track were as sharp as ever, talking about 60-day chips from Fuckin’ Awesome Anonymous. He survived boarding school, was back, and we were all happy.
“Super Rich Kids” – Frank Ocean featuring Earl Sweatshirt
Frank Ocean’s soliloquy on the uninformed glamorous life gets a much-needed verbal lift from Earl. He comes off like a trust fund baby in his bars, sarcastically discussing crashing Jaguars and chomping on Xanax. You know, the life of super rich kids.
“The Daily News” – Domo Genesis, The Alchemist, SpaceGhostPurrp, Earl Sweatshirt, and Action Bronson
It would seem like on a track like “The Daily News” it would be easy to get lost in the sauce with all of the talent on the cut. That is unless you’re the dude rocking the hook. Earl and Bronsonlino chant in unison about kicking their Sperry’s up. What a visual.
“Rusty” – Tyler, The Creator featuring Earl Sweatshirt & Domo Genesis
There’s nothing rusty about Earl’s bars on this Wolf contribution. He plays cleanup as he tosses around some vulnerable albeit self-deprecating bars about anti-sobriety and lack of therapy. Kind of life Eminem, except, not.
“AssMilk” – Tyler, The Creator featuring Earl Sweatshirt
With a title like “AssMilk,” the verses have to be the redeeming factor on the track. Good thing they are. Both Tyler and Earl trade bars back and forth like they’re having one big psychotic conversation. It’s pretty awesome.
