With Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt finally back into action after months of isolation, the rapper has offered his take on the media and public's perception of him.
[Editor's Note: The original story mistakenly cited Tyler Craven as Tyler, the Creator.]
He also disassociated himself from Tyler Craven, a teenager who previously spoke on an alleged relationship with Earl Sweatshirt.
"the people who know absolutely nothing voice their opinions the loudest. jesus," he tweeted February 9th.

Last year, Craven spoke on Earl Sweatshirt's alleged whereabouts after months of seclusion.
Earlier this week, we introduced you to Tyler Craven, the 17-year-old Virginia native who attended Coral Reef Academy in Samoa with Earl Sweatshirt. The previous post consisted of Facebook screenshots and other digital detective tactics similar to those Complex employed when we originally found Earl. We got on the phone with Tyler Craven and he had a lot to say about the nine months he spent in the program, many of them with the missing Odd Future star he calls by his government name, Thebe Kgositsile. From being there with Earl as OFWGKTA was blowing up to day-to-day life at the academy, we have all the details that we need to close this chapter on the Earl Sweatshirt saga until he returns home.

A couple days ago, Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator formally announced Earl's return.
"Ive Never Been Excited And Angry At The Same Time Until Today. Thats A F*cked Feeling.," Tyler tweeted February 8th.
"Oh. Thebe Has....I Mean Earl Has A Twitter. @earlxsweat" (Tyler, the Creator's Twitter)
Initial stirring developed suggesting Earl was deliberately taken out of the spotlight by his family.
The leader of the group is a 19 year-old named Tyler, or Tyler The Creator. The second-most prominent of the group is a rapper named Hodgy Beats. The rest of the group splinter off into sub-groups. The youngest member is Earl Sweatshirt, who was recently sent away to boarding school by his parents. (Esquire)
