Odd Future alumni Earl Sweatshirt will be making a stop in Orlando on his “Not Ready 2 Leave” tour, having recently released his second studio album late last month.
The show will occur on Sat. May 2, at Venue 578 in downtown Orlando. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. with the show starting at 8:00 p.m. This is an all-ages show.
For those unfamiliar with the young rapper, Earl Sweatshirt has been in hip-hop for years, gaining major attention with the release of his mixtape Earl. Even though he was only 16 at the time, it received critical acclaim due to its intricate wordplay as well as controversy, thanks to its more violent and distasteful themes.
Between then and the release of his first studio album Doris, however, Earl Sweatshirt made many public references concerning his desire to mature, lyrically. Since then, he has become known for a much more somber, almost depressing tone surrounding his work as well as dark production.
Remy Banks is billed as the show’s opener along with frequent Earl Sweatshirt collaborator, Vince Staples. The latter’s name should be familiar to most underground hip-hop fans with a slew of fantastic mixtapes, as well as his first official EP released last year.
Notable credits Vince Staples has shared with Earl Sweatshirt include the songs “Hive”, “Burgundy” and “Wool”.
Tickets can be purchased here at starting at $30.
