(AllHipHop News) Many observers feel as if the Odd Future camp is an extension of Eminem’s musical tree. But after the crew’s leader Tyler, The Creator blasted Em’s Shady XV compilation album in 2014, another OF comrade has expressed he is not feeling the Detroit legend’s most recent work either.
Earl Sweatshirt did a recent interview with Spin, and the creator of the lauded I Don’t Like Sh*t, I Don’t Go Outside album was asked if he still follows Eminem’s new music.
“Hell nah! Sorry! [laughs],” replied Earl. “If you still follow Eminem, you drink way too much Mountain Dew and probably need to like, come home from the army.”
While he did not hold back his thoughts about Slim Shady, Sweatshirt was also critical of his own work. He admitted he is not a fan of his 2013 LP Doris. In contrast, the 21-year-old Los Angeles native offered praise for some of his rap contemporaries.
“We finally went into these chambers of our own selves that we hadn’t gone into before. Like Vince [Staples] went back to the time that changed him, which was summertime 2006 and I just kind of examined where I was at his time,” said Earl. “Same with Future and same with Kendrick. N*ggas are evaluating where they’re at right now. Even Drake! ‘Please do not talk to me like I’m that Drake from four years ago/I’m in a higher place.’ He’s talking to you about him right now. So any of the sh*t that’s sticking is because it’s current and honest.”
