After months of waiting and finally getting his long-awaited Doris album onto store shelves, Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt has revealed plans to link up with pal Tyler, the Creator for a joint project.
If everything goes accordingly, fans will hear Earl and Tyler share microphone time on a full-length release titled EarlWolf.
“We’ll do the record when we’re ready to sit down for a month and a half and do it in one. It’d be shitty if it was spread out. That’s how I want to do shit from now on; that’s what I learned from doing ‘Doris’. Trying to piece sh*t together that’s hella spread out kinda sucks. You hit a lot more walls trying to make it sync.” He also insisted that things were “cool” with Odd Future, despite various members of the rap collective branching out to work on different projects, and said that he and his bandmates “still have the OF pillow to fall back on”.

Over the summer, the Odd Future duo have been spotted overseas performing at public venues.

Tyler kept busy this year by helping contribute to Earl’s new Doris album.
“IVE HAD DORIS FOR A WEEK AND I LIKE IT. ALOT. I HAVE THE WEAKEST BEATS ON THERE TBH,” Tyler tweeted July 12.

Recently, the Odd Future frontman revealed he had already started taking steps to do things bigger than just music in the next few years.
“Uh, not really,” Tyler said when asked if he thinks about his group’s future. “The little money I have made already, I’m just trying to invest in sh*t so I don’t have to make music three years from now and I can be rich off of that. I am not kidding.” (Hypebeast)
