Over two months have passed since we last heard a solo offering from Earl Sweatshirt, but that gap has now been broken with his next release. The Odd Future member’s latest single comes in the form of “Guild,” which includes a guest contribution from Most Dope general, Mac Miller. The track has been featured in live performances for quite some time, but only now is the collaboration being heard in its entirety. Although a date is still yet to be confirmed, you can expect the song to appear on Earl’s forthcoming album Doris.
In 1999, Erick and Parrish Making Dollars were going “Out of Business” (literally and figuratively) with their last album before the duo’s second breakup. One of our most played tracks from the project was the Symphony 2000 cut that featured battle rapper Lady Luck, Tical and Reggie. Themed from classic horror films, our favorite part was Lady Luck reenacting the promo scene from “Carrie” where a bucket of blood landed on her all white dress and she continued to rap like it was nothing.
Enjoy the flashback above from the L.I. legends EPMD.
There’s often times when we get to enjoy a sneak peak at many of our favorite artist’s shows across the globe. However, nothing’s quite like watching the full show unveil itself in its true colors and emotion. That’s the case with James Blake’s recent performance at 9:30 Club in Washington D.C., as his glorious 90-minute set was recorded in its entirety, and luckily for us it was filmed in complete high definition. If you’ve ever experienced the energy of Blake’s live performances, you have to agree that the footage gives the moment justice.
