Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt Publicly Reunite at Afropunk 2016
Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt appear to be on good terms. A picture of the two with The Internet's Syd Tha Kyd was posted on Odd Future's official Instagram account. Another photo posted by Odd Future member Jasper Dolphin showed off more of the OFWGKTA crew hanging out together. Tyler, Earl and The Internet were among the performers at Afropunk 2016 this past weekend.
This public reunion between Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt comes after a few years of a frosty relationship between the two. The close friends began collaborating less following the release of Earl's debut album Doris in 2013. Tyler would reveal he and Earl were growing apart in a 2014 interview.
"That’s my nigga, [w]e just aren’t as close as we were," Tyler said. "It’s kind of weird, but I’m aware and smart enough to know, okay, shit changes."
Odd Future fans are sure to be excited by this public reunion. Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt taking this photo could be the impetus for something much bigger. It being shared on the official Odd Future Instagram account will likely stir up some discussion about a proper return for the collective. Tyler and Earl were the main attractions of the group when they burst onto the hip-hop scene, so their reunion would be vital for an OFWGKTA comeback.
