Earl Sweatshirt of Odd Future has signed a deal with Columbia Records/Sony to have his own record label imprint, to be called Tan Cressida.

Sony also work with RED, the imprint which puts out Odd Future's releases Stateside under the Odd Future Records banner.

The rapper, who is now back in the United States and a fully-fledged member of Odd Future again, is looking to start work on his debut solo album, according to the New York Times, as well as a collaboration with Matt Martians and the EarlWolf project with Tyler, The Creator.

In March, Earl Sweatshirt rejoined Odd Future live onstage in New York. The estranged rapper had been living at the Coral Reef Academy in Samoa, but made the surprise appearance at the group's gig at the Manhattan Center's Hammerstein Ballroom.

At the show, Earl performed a number of tracks taken from various Odd Future mixtapes, including 'Orange Juice', 'Assmilk' and 'Kill'. Following the band's usual set-closer, 'Radical', the beat for his eponymous track 'Earl' dropped and Sweatshirt rapped the song that first showcased his talents. However, in the New York Times piece, Sweatshirt said of the song: "There's not a time I want to listen to that," adding that he now thought it sounded "like you skinned your knee".

Earl's debut live show with Odd Future came a week after the rapper released a new song, 'Oldie'. Earlier this year Santigold confirmed she was planning on collaborating with Earl Sweatshirt on a new track.
