Why Didn't Earl Sweatshirt Ever Become Bigger than He Was?
 

 
mean was it thr odd future brand? was it work ethic? image? style too close to someone else?

I never got heavy into that ofwg sh*t but anytime a Earl Sweatshirt verse came on I knew it would be fire....

Someone made a thread about artist with the biggest buzz who flopped...how did he not blow when them n*ggas even had tv shows at one point?

i mean anyone here gonna even debate his lyrical ability? can we admit he's easily one of the nicest with the pen. Period?

His last two releases were stellar.

Not for boring n*ggas tho ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Some Rap Songs is criminally slept on.

he went underground and is doing just fine, he's in the circle of ALC and Mach Hommy etc, i think he got a collab album coming with ALC or DJ Muggs soon as well...

plus he produces probably more than rap now

his releases also got a lot more experimental and weird as he kept making music so his reach got limited just from him growing as an artist

also it was stated b4 but he started going deeper with the underground scene so he doesn't care being a real top dog, just chilling and making good music

Exactly this.

Earl one of the coldest artists ever to me and he seems happy and content where he's at.

He defintely has a following and gets to make the music he wants to make. Can't really beat that

People want more from their black artists than to be so potentially cool and they just do dumb sh*t and act weird.

With all the physical charisma, swagger we naturally have?? Nah man. It’s off putting to see it

He had all the potential and hype. Then did a complete 180 and started rapping like someone laced his blunt.

Since people don’t know.

When Odd Future was blowing up, Earl, who everyone thought was the best on the roster, disappeared.

Turns out his mother deaded that rap sh*t and sent his a*s to boarding school.

So for the biggest 4 years or so of OddFuture’s run Earl was MIA.

This deaded all of his buzz. Hell by the time he was free Tyler’s buzz was deaded rap ain’t gonna wait on your forever.

Last I heard dude was like a substitute basketball teacher for kids and sh*tz.

More community activist than rapper these days.

I feel like the same things that were said about Fatlip in The Pharcyde can be said about Earl with OF.

Fatlip wanted to be more a lyrical introspective type of rapper while everyone else was caught up in the fame that came with their more melodic mainstream tracks. Earl seems like he wants to go in a similar route with everyone in his group doing their own solo things, even though you only ever hear from Tyler and Doms occasionally.
