“It’s probably been 12 years since my father left, left me fatherless
And I just used to say I hate him in dishonest jest”


We all know Earl can rap. And we all really enjoyed “Chum” when it dropped last month… and then when the official lyric video came out it made you appreciate even more how great of a writer he is. His word choice is superb, and he thankfully steers clear of his usually one large pitfall of relying too much on assonance.

So here’s the official video, and it’s every bit as slowly swelling and melancholy as you’d expect. The video is released through Earl’s own Tan Cressida label that is a Columbia/Sony imprint. Album coming soon, maybe?
