Earl Sweatshirt Releases New Song ‘The Mint,’ Shares ‘Some Rap Songs’ Cover Art & Release Date


Earl Sweatshirt made his highly anticipated return with “Nowhere2go” earlier this month, and the 24-year-old wasted no time in following up with the Navy Blue-assisted “The Mint” on Tuesday (Nov. 20). Additionally, Earl unveiled the bizarre cover art to Some Rap Songs and shared that the elusive project will be releasing Nov. 30.

The Chicago native touches on his two-year hiatus in the midst of the Black Noi$e production and even gives a shout-out to Slums-NYC affiliate MIKE. “I heard you got your sauce at the enterprise/ Evidently, it was rented but it’s mine/ Evidently, it was written like Nas/ I was in the kitchen with that n—a Mike/ Gotta listen when I tell ya simmer down/ Two years I’ve been missin’, livin’ life/ You was wildin’, every day was trash,” Earl raps.

Some Rap Songs will serve as the “Whoa” artist’s first full-length LP since 2015’s acclaimed I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. Earl Sweatshirt announced Tuesday that SRSis also now available for pre-order on his official websiteprior to its release to close out November.
