Earl Sweatshirt — found! [UPDATED, Tyler’s input]

14 Apr

[According to Tyler, The Creator’s twitter, this is not accurate information. He said:

“Sick As Fuck, But I Just Came On This To Say That Complex Shit Is False Info. Sucks Waking Up To Some Shit Like That…Fuck Complex.”

This could be Tyler trying to stir up drama due to his dislike of Complex (about a month or so ago, Complex wrote a story on a tweet Tyler made regarding his disappointment in the Pusha T mixtape, and he was not too happy), but I guess Tyler would know better than anyone else where his close friend is.

So the enigmatic Earl lives on in mystery. (read the article below to see what kinds of info Complex put out earlier this morning).]

This is big news for any fans of the Odd Future crew. If you’ve heard any of their songs, seen any of their videos, read any of their twitter accounts (etc), then you know that Earl Sweatshirt is missing. The lack of details however kept fans in the dark and perpetuated rumors and guessing (he’s dead, he’s in prison, he’s across the country, and so on).

Well, just a few hours ago, Complex announced that they have found him! If you look at the picture above, it shows Earl with the group of boys that all go to Coral Reef Academy in Samoa (this place). It’s a place for teenagers who are headed down a dangerous path, and it is there to set them straight. So this corrective academy is where Earl has been for the past many months.

Well at least we now have some sort of conclusion to this loose end…now we just need to get him back here to record some more records.
