Thanks to Despot‘s Twitter feed, here’s the new video for “Hive”, the third single from Earl Sweatshirt’s Columbia Records debut ‘Doris’.
‘Doris’ is one of my most anticipated albums of the Summer thanks in part to Earl’s reinvigorated, and some might argue more grown-up, approach to songwriting since returning from a Samoan school for at-risk youth.
It’s also refreshing as hell to hear “real Rap” back on a major label like it used to be on the regular back in Hip-Hop’s so-called “glory days” of the late eighties and early nineties.
‘Doris’ drops, both in stores and at digital retailers, on August 20th via the Columbia Records label and Earl’s own Tan Cressida imprint.
Here’s Earl’s “Chum” and “Whoa”, featuring his OFWGKTA homie Tyler, the Creator, which both date back to our absence from the blogosphere.
