Earl Sweatshirt's place in the world of Hip Hop is a unique one. While the essence of his work seems to be born out of the same culture of fear and xenophobia that many of his contemporaries, it's filled with introspection and adolescent worry that's unique to him in such a guarded genre.
Earl has just released a clip to his track 'Off Top' and as a visual representation of his work, it matches up brilliantly.
Earl's mental health is brought into focus more than most other people working in the genre, mainly because he brings it into focus himself.
The clip delve into the thematics of Earl's work, and thr disjointed psychedelic nature of it references human vulnerability. Who'd have thought one of the best psychedelic animated clips of the year would run alongside a Sweatshirt track? I'd have had my money on King Gizzard.
