Sick! auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Sick! (stylized in all caps) is the fourth studio album by American rapper Earl Sweatshirt. It was released on January 14, 2022, through Tan Cressida and Warner Records.[1] The album features collaborations with Armand Hammer and Zelooperz, along with additional vocals by Na-Kel Smith. Production was handled by the Alchemist, Black Noi$e, Navy Blue (under the alias Ancestors), Samiyam, Alexander Spit, Theravada, Rob Chambers, and some co-production by Earl himself.[2] It was preceded by the singles "2010", "Tabula Rasa" featuring Armand Hammer, and "Titanic".[3]


Earl Sweatshirt called the album his "humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns",[4] as he "leaned into the chaos" of the world's growing "anger and restlessness".[5] The album was announced on December 10, 2021.[1]

Sick was met with widespread critical acclaim from critics upon its release. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 85, based on 17 reviews.[7] Aggregator AnyDecentMusic? gave it 7.9 out of 10, based on their assessment of the critical consensus.[6]

Tom Breihan of Stereogum named Sick! "Album of the Week", stating, "SICK! is the first Earl Sweatshirt album that doesn't sound more freaked-out and withdrawn than the one that came before. It's a dense, rich, contemplative piece of work... [it's] a strange and insular rap record, but it's a rap record nonetheless, and it's a great one".[18] Concluding the review for AllMusic, Fred Thomas felt that while " Sick! is brief, with just ten songs clocking in at around 24 minutes, but every move is placed with intention and forethought. Sharp, direct, and fluid in a way that's almost supernatural, Sick! perfectly conveys the duality of frustration and drive to persevere that arises from living through exceptionally difficult times."[8] Reviewing the album for Pitchfork, Dylan Green compared the album to its predecessor; "Sick! doesn't recontextualize the genre in the same way Some Rap Songs did, but it's an act of self-revolution. It magnifies a newly assured Earl Sweatshirt, skin shed and free to ascend."[15]

Doris ¦ Sick!

Earl Sweatshirt auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Earl Sweatshirt (* 24. Februar 1994; wirklicher Name Thebe Neruda Kgositsile) ist ein US-amerikanischer Rapper, Produzent, Songwriter und Mitglied des Hip-Hop-Kollektives Odd Future.


Earl Sweatshirts Eltern sind Cheryl Harris, eine Professorin an der University of California in Los Angeles und Keorapetse Kgositsile, ein südafrikanischer Poet und politischer Aktivist. Sweatshirt wuchs in Los Angeles auf. Sein Vater verließ ihn mit sechs Jahren, diesen Umstand verarbeitet er im Song Chum.

Earl Sweatshirt (2013)

Thebe war als Sly Tendencies Mitglied in der Gruppe The Backpackerz. Im Jahr 2009 entdeckte Tyler, the Creator Earl auf dessen Myspace-Seite, auf der Tracks seines Mixtapes Kitchen Cutlery veröffentlicht waren. Das Mixtape wurde weder fertiggestellt noch offiziell veröffentlicht. Earl Sweatshirt trat dem Hip-Hop-Kollektiv Odd Future bei.

Earl veröffentlichte sein erstes Mixtape Earl. Danach brachte ihn seine Mutter wegen seines häufigen Marihuanakonsums und schulischer Probleme zur Coral Reef Academy, einer therapeutischen Schule für junge Männer, außerhalb der samoanischen Hauptstadt Apia. 2012 versprach Earl Sweatshirt in einem auf YouTube hochgeladenen Video, einen vollständigen Track zu veröffentlichen, sollte er 50.000 Follower auf Twitter bekommen. Das Vorhaben gelang innerhalb von drei Stunden, woraufhin Home auf seiner Website veröffentlicht wurde. Am Ende des Titels verkündete er seine Rückkehr in die USA („...and I'm back. Bye.“). Im selben Jahr erschien die Single Chum. Earl Sweatshirt veröffentlichte seitdem 5 Studienalben, zuletzt Voir Dire (2023)

Earl Sweatshirt betreibt sein eigenes Label Tan Cressida, das früher von Columbia Records vertrieben wurde und mittlerweile von Warner.
