Earl Sweatshirt – “Hive” feat. Vince Staples & Casey Veggies

Posted by on July 16, 2013

I just hopped on SoundCloud and became immediately excited with the realization that Earl Sweatshirt has unveiled a new track from his upcoming DORIS LP. This one features Vince Staples and Casey Veggies, two long time OF collaborators that I’m pretty happy to see working with the crew again. All three of these emcees are among what I see as the promising future of rap. On “Hive” Sweatshirt, Staples, and Veggies all ride smooth verses that seem to pour effortlessly over a thundering minimal beat. After a bit more digging (very little digging) I realized the trio also have released a video for the track, honing in on the dark, eerie, and angst-ridden lyrics of “Hive”. DORIS hits streets August 20 via Earl’s own Columbia/Sony imprint, Tan Cressida.
