That was fast. Two months after Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt was released from a Samoan boarding school, The New York Times reveals that he has his own label that will we be under the Sony Records umbrella.
He’ll have his own imprint, Tan Cressida, to be distributed through Columbia. That places him in the Sony system alongside Odd Future, which was one of his priorities. He turned down offers with significantly higher advances and made sure that his contract allowed him to put the Odd Future logo on his albums. “I want it to look seamless,” he said. As for his mother’s concerns, “She knows she’s got nothing to worry about.”
