Free Earl?

Before we all chant Odd Future is back and celebrate the long-awaited return of OF "general" Earl Sweatshirt, I want you to think back to the last time we heard that Earl was "free." It was November and word blew-up that the virulent rapper had returned from American Samoa and was ready to start rapping again. That proved to be a hoax and Tyler, the Creator pulled another comical prank on fans that obsess over the L.A. crew. Granted, this comeback seems more legit with the issuing of the dazzling "Home,"  and the emergence of a new Earl Twitter account, but don't get your hopes up. The track itself is classic Earl, blowing viciously by with little room for respite from the malevolent lines. He ends the track with an oddly-hesitant "and I'm back," and disappears into the ether. If he is back, it's been way too long and if not continue to chant "Free Earl" as much as possible. You won't be the only one.
