Odd Future‘s missing rapper Earl Sweatshirt has apparently been tracked down to a “therapeutic centre” in American Samoa.
The rapper – real name Thebe Kgositsile – has not been seen with the Los Angeles hip-hop collective for a number of months, leading to speculation among fans about his whereabouts.
Complex.com has published a picture of which it claims proves the 17-year-old has been staying at the Coral Reef Academy on the South Pacific island.
The news source explained it tracked the rapper down after following a clue in a new track by Odd Future members Domo Genesis and Hodgy Beats. The lyrics to the track state: “Ask Syd where we at. She’ll tell you where we going. To free Earl from the fucking Samoans.”.
Bandmate Mike G appeared to be more convinced, tweeting: “Fuck, that’s really him”.
Odd Future are scheduled to play two UK gigs on April 29 – playing at London‘s Village Underground at 2.30pm (GMT) and the capital’s Relentless Garage in the evening.
