Earl Sweatshirt's sophomore album, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album By Earl Sweatshirt, was released yesterday. Sweatshirt sat down with NPR's Microphone Check to discuss what went wrong with the album's release. Overall, Earl gave his label, Columbia Records, an F for the way they handled the release of his album. At this point, Earl has let go of the anger, but wants Columbia to hold themselves accountable for mishandling the album's roll out. "Brah, I was devastated. I was ready to like kill some — the day I was — it would've been so quiet for any n—— from Sony. I was so mad cause it was like — especially because I feel like this is my first album. This is the first thing that I've said that I fully stand behind, like the good and the bad of it. Because it's just — I've never been this transparent with myself or with music. I've never been behind myself this much. So for them to not treat as importantly as I was treating it was just like — I couldn't help but to feel a little disrespected, you know?" Beyond the botched release, Earl spoke on the album's creation, its content and his well-being. The hour-long interview can be streamed below.
