Earl Sweatshirt announces Melbourne headline show

Let's be honest. He was always the best rapper to come out of Odd Future. 

It has been over two years since Californian rapper Earl Sweatshirt graced the stage of Splendour In The Grass and now he is returning for a special one night only gig in Melbourne.

Starting out in 2009 as one of the youngest members of hip hop collective Odd Future, Sweatshirt toured and wrote with the likes of Frank Ocean and Tyler, the Creator before gaining solo attention just a year later with debut mixtape Earl.

Hard at work on his third album, Sweatshirt has been giving fans a taste of the upcoming release out on the road. The musician launched latest song ‘Hat Trick’ at Detroit’s Movement Festival in May, where the track’s simple rhythms let his honest rapping take centre stage.

Sweatshirt will be headlining 170 Russell, Melbourne on Sunday 14 January.  Tickets via moshtix
