Earl Sweatshirt made his DJ debut under the name Earl Fletcher last month, showing off his burgeoning skills at Trash Talk’s skate shop.
Boiler Room was on hand to capture Earl Fletcher’s first time out as he played records by Lil B, 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne at Babylon Skate Shop in Los Angeles. Sporting a New Zealand rugby shirt, Earl opened his set with Eugene McDaniels’ ‘Supermarket Blues’.

Trash Talk played a live set later on the same day:
Earl Sweatshirt released latest album ‘I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside’ in 2015. Earlier this year he shared three new songs with fans, including one that sampled Kanye West.
‘Wind In My Sails’ will be familiar to fans of Captain Murphy, as it takes Madlib and Flying Lotus’ beat for ‘Children of the Atom’ beat from his 2014 mixtape.
Sweatshirt followed this up with two instrumentals. The first, titled ‘Bary’, samples Kanye West’s ‘Barry Bonds’; the Lil Wayne collaboration on West’s 2007 album ‘Graduation’. A second track, ‘Skrt Skrt’, is an updated version of Savage‘s ‘Skirtt Skirtt.’
