Earl Sweatshirt Forms Label With Sony

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.”

    Wowzers! These Odd Future kids are smart as hell! Earl made me dig them 2 begin with. Can’t wait to see the outcome. I wonder if Frank Ocean will do the same.

  • YN’s conscience

    For real for real, this is some industry conspiracy stuff (like they wanted criminal rap to be prominent) to influence the youth.
    These dudes already prove they can’t sell serious records yet, they’re getting whatever they ask and significant deals from labels who’s well aware of this dude not dropping any music.

    They’re big on the atheist, lawless movement and i think that’s how the powers think they can influence the future away from religion previous reign. don’t believe me. hope u live long enough to see.

    @YN’s conscience

    I think it’s just a simple case of having the right connections. Their manager is a former Interscope Heavyweight. Supreme signed them up. They’ve got Terry Richardson @ their disposal. They know the right folks and of course they are talented too.

    ^YELLOW NIGGA ISN’T THINKING THAT. HE’S THINKING $$$ FOR HIM.

    B. DOT, I’M DISAPPOINTED YOU DIDN’T COMMENT ON THIS. DID YELLOW NIGGA PUT THE MUZZLE?

    WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

  • IM730

    A few things that key in.. They got mad following (i personally believe all of their fans are idiots) and nowadays record execs ride for someone with more twitter followers than talent. They got cosigns from people. Personally I doubt he does anything with it. They giving these kids everything a tv show a label im sure clothing is next. With this shit goin on it wouldnt surprise me if you report Lil B is named president of Defjam tomorrow.

  • In Your Fucking Face

    @IM730 They Came In Having Their Own Clothing Line. Get That Shit Right. All The Label Did Was Give Distribution. All Press, Tv Shows, Video’s, Record Sales Were Made By Their Own Merit.

  • Sarah_Underwood

    @IM730 get a job

  • IM730

    Haaa I make bank @sarah_undercam. Like i said their fans are idiots.

  • RAPRAYDUR

    THE LIL NIGGA CAN RAP AND SOME OF HIS SHIT GOES OVER PEOPLE’S HEAD EVEN HIS FANBASE’S HEADS. THOSE LITTLE WHITE KIDS JUST FOLLOW OF CAUSE IT’S THE “COOL” THING TO DO AND THEY GET HATE FROM “REAL HIP-HOP” HEADS CAUSE OF IT. THE THING WITH EARL (AND I GUESS THE REST OF OFWGKTA) IS THAT THEY MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THEY DONT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HIP-HOP (WHICH I DON’T THINK THEY DO) OR ANYTHING IN GENERAL. IF THEY FEEL LIKE PUTTING SHIT OUT, THEY DO, THEY’RE JUST TOO WILD FOR THE HARDCORE RAP FANS. FRANK OCEAN, EARL, DOMO >> REST OF ODD FUTURE
