Watch Earl Sweatshirt Perform With BADBADNOTGOOD on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Last night (May 13), Earl Sweatshirt hit the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform cuts from his latest album, March's excellent I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside. Backed by Canadian jazz trio (and Ghostface collaborators) BADBADNOTGOOD, Earl ran through "AM // Radio" (sans Wiki), "Grief" and "Kaleidoscope." (Note: The above video incorrectly cites the first song as "Huey.") Fans of the Los Angeles rapper can see the live set is the precursor to his tour, which continues this weekend in Las Vegas. This comes while Earl has taken measures to keep his body in top shape throughout a docket of live dates; the last one caused him grave health problems.
The late night stage has served as a proving ground of sorts for all the members of Odd Future; all the way back in 2010, Jimmy Fallon's show was the site of the crew's first television appearance, when Tyler, the Creator and Hodgy Beats delivered a ski-mask-dropping performance of "Sandwitches." At the time of the performance, Earl was still serving time, so to speak, at an educational and behavioral youth program in Samoa. Since his return, he has released two albums, I Don't Like Shit and 2013's Doris. His longtime collaborator Tyler released his own Cherry Bomb earlier this year.
