Tyler and Earl are two of the most talked about hip hop artists of recent memory but it isn’t just the hype; each have earned their acclaim by subverting conventions of genre with divisive lyrics and an innovative, experimental sound. Together they are a provocative force of nature that owns every inch of the stage.
Much like his namesake, Tyler’s work has been impressively prolific. At the centre of hip hop collective Odd Future, Tyler has had a hand in the artistic direction of his own and many other releases often acting as producer, director and designer.
The self taught musician blazed into the spotlight with debut studio album Bastard in 2009, which ranked 32nd on Pitchfork’s list of the Top Albums of 2010. Second album Goblin quickly followed debuting at #5 on the US Billboard 200 and selling over 230,000 copies.
Fresh from a knock out performance at Coachella, 19 year old fellow Odd Future affiliate Earl Sweatshirt is equal parts enigma and hip hop prodigy. His self titled debut (produced by Tyler) grabbed the internet by the scruff of the neck and forced it to pay attention, mesmerizing critics with dark, complex wordplay and confronting themes. Following a musical hiatus after being sent away to a reform school in Samoa, Earl released ‘Chum’ a disarmingly honest and expertly crafted track that left critics captivated and waiting for more.
Don’t miss your chance to see two of the most explosive artists of recent times in their element this June.
