Odd Future‘s Earl Sweatshirt claims he’s been subjected to “the most ridiculous myths and theories of the decade”.
“The people who know absolutely nothing voice their opinions the loudest. Jesus,” he wrote, before adding:
I’m the subject of the most ridiculous myths and theories of this decade. Fuck expectations.
Sweatshirt, who real name is Thebe Kgositsile, was the subject of much speculation in 2011 as fans of the Los Angeles collective tried to track down to whereabouts of the ‘missing’ rapper.
He was eventually found at Samoa’s Coral Reef Academy, but later denied reports that he had been hidden away by his mother against his will. Last November, meanwhile, his Odd Future bandmate Tyler, The Creator tricked fans into believing his bandmate had returned to LA.
Odd Future release ‘OF Tape Vol 2’ on February 20. The album will be just one of a slew of Odd Future-related LPs to be released this year, with Tyler, The Creator’s ‘Wolf’ – the follow-up to last year’s ‘Goblin’ – set to drop in May. Fellow Odd Future member and singer Frank Ocean is also planning on releasing an album this year, while Mellowhype – the side-project from Hodgy Beats and Leftbrain – are expected to release a second record in 2012.
