Feet of Clay arrives just one year after the release of Earl’s Some Rap Songs LP, which earned critical acclaim from the likes of The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Pitchfork, The Atlantic, NME and many more. The title Feet of Clay is a reference to the Bible’s Book of Daniel. Said Earl of the project, “’FOC’ is a collection of observations and feelings recorded during the death throes of a crumbling empire.” He will also release a video for the song “East” tomorrow (Friday). Additionally, in celebration of the project, tonight (Thursday) there will be a special Feet of Clay pop-up event in Los Angeles’ downtown Arts District.
Next week, Earl will hit the Gnaw Stage at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 10th at 7:35pm, where he will be selling exclusive merch and doing his first live performance post-release of Feet of Clay.
ABOUT EARL SWEATSHIRT:
Earl Sweatshirt is the virtuosic byproduct of Los Angeles’ fertile ground where hip hop sowed its seeds and historic cultural movements were born. The prodigiously gifted writer, lyricist and producer grew from a zeitgeist of which contemporary collectives in hip hop today are predicated. And while most movements are fleeting as soon as they arrive, Earl pushed forward, documented his growth and self-discovery on record and cemented himself as one of the foremost culturally relevant MC’s in the game. One who never strayed away too far from his Los Angeles beat-scene roots. His debut album Doris arrived in 2013 and introduced the world to a more realized vision from him than his seminal mixtape Earl that was released three years prior when he was just 16-years-old. He followed Doris with the critically lauded I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside in 2015, further exploring the depth of his technical dexterity with more swagger than prior releases. Three years later he released Some Rap Songs in 2018, the tightly wrought album that found a more self-aware and mature Earl in his reflection of being in the public eye since a teenager, coupled with the reconciling of the death of his father. Enter Feet of Clay, the conceptual 2019 project that continues the written narrative of Earl’s life in today’s societal landscape and world-view in real-time.
