Some Rap Songs is the third studio album by American rapper Earl Sweatshirt. It was released on November 30, 2018, by Columbia Records and Tan Cressida Records.
His first tape, Earl, and his official debut, Doris, rest squarely in the Odd Future canon. Now, on Some Rap Songs, the 24-year-old has become the OG to a vanguard of younger artists who are blurring the lines between avant-garde jazz and hip-hop
Some Rap Songs sees Earl step out as a producer, handling most of the production on the soul-heavy album. Choice vocal features come from Earl’s mother Cheryl Harris, and late father and South African poet laureate, Keorapetse Kgositsile. Standout tracks to check out include lead single The Mint, Red Water, December 24 and Playing Possum. Stream Earl Sweatshirt’s Some Rap Songs album below.

Some Rap Songs is the follow-up to 2015’s critically acclaimed I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. In the New Year of 2018, Earl promised the release of new music on Twitter, which would bring an end to his close to 4 year absence from the rap game. After performing multiple unreleased tracks during live shows, and following a personally rough year for the rapper, including the death of his father, Keorapetse Kgositsile, Earl indicated on social media that new music was imminent as we neared the closure of 2018
Some Rap Songs is an album that circles death, loss and maturity, but it’s the rare album to resist offering any broader meaning to its themes. Earl doesn’t provide any easy answers because he doesn’t have any. Instead, Some Rap Songs is simply a project full of good songs about bad emotions. In January, Sweatshirt’s father, the South African poet laureate Keorapetse Kgositsile, died. Often this grief manifests itself in repetition, and Earl selects a series of concise, looping beats over which to deploy repeated iterations of the same memories. He’s drowning and in disbelief that no one informed him there was a way to escape. Why ain’t nobody tell me I was sinkin’, Ain’t nobody tell me I could leave, he raps on album opener Shattered Dreams. A song later ( Red Water ) he again proclaims, I was sinkin’, I ain’t know that I could leave.
Frank Ocean with Blonde, Tyler with Flower Boy, and now Earl with Some Rap Songs. This album is this generations response to Madvilliany. It is mind-warping, lo-fi, and at the same time feels like Earl coming to peace with who he is. FAV SONGS: Shattered Dreams, Cold Summers, Nowhere2go, December 24, Ontheway!, The Mint, The Bends, Azucar, Veins, Playing Possum, Peanut, Riot!
The album reasserts his status as a uniquely fascinating rapper.
