1. WATCH: Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt on His Boarding School Hiatus.

    Loose, honest, awkward and endearing: Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt – in apparently his first formal interview ever – clarifies the back-story behind his Samoan boarding school hiatus with Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg (OF’s Tyler and Taco in tow). “Motherfuckers think like my mom heard a song and was like, no!” explains Earl of his now-infamous parent-mandated stint away from the group. “I was fucking up… like outside of music, aside from everything else.” It’s clear that the trio feel quite comfortable speaking candidly to Rosenberg, a long-time supporter, making for moments both revealing (e.g. Earl on coming back to the hype and attention: “I also got to see that all this shit isn’t fun all the time”) and entertaining (e.g. when the dudes guess PR’s age as “mid-40s” much to PR’s chagrin; Tyler to Rosenberg: “You’d make a great subsitute teacher!”). Odd Future performs tonight in NYC at the Hammerstein Ballroom. (via MissInfoTV )
