During a recent interview with the New York times which at first appeared to be the newspaper just being slow with the news, Earl Sweatshirt has confirmed that he has signed a solo record deal that is not completely affiliated with Odd Future. The rap Prodigy Earl Sweatshirt also mentioned that he has his own management team that is separate from the Odd Future Rap Collective
New York Times:
THE MOST ANTICLIMACTIC record deal signing in the history of such events took place in the front conference room at Mr. Brezner’s firm, on a blindingly sunny day on which Earl Sweatshirt was happily high.”
“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.”
