conclusion

Earl Sweatshirt is one of my favorite artists, he is very authentic and true to himself, listening to him while growing up, experiencing similar teenage emotions and watching someone voice and express themselves in such a way was enchanting. Sweatshirts utilization of multiple mediums such as film, both in music videos and in the small television shows he took part in, show a level of intellectualism and self awareness that I have admired for years. I would personally say he is the most underrated artist of this generation, let me know what you think in the comments below!
