Earl Sweatshirt

So this kid Earl Sweatshirt is dope as fuck to me.  He’s from a crew called OFWGKTA and he has such an awesome visceral, original style that’s hard to replicate.  What excites me the most about him is the fact that his rhyming is just so creative and inventive.  First of all, he’s DMX-like in both his low syllable per word score and word dexterity score. Rhyming-wise, he’s next level.  On ePar (off the self-titled EARL mixtape), he has only 2% perfect rhymes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_rhyme) which to me signifies just how creative the new generation of hip hoppers are becoming. To put this number in context, it’s a lower score than arguably the best rhymer on the planet Fabolous who’s at 5% on Street Dreams.  This kid is fucking special.

On ePar he displays this rhyming creativity:

MAYBE IF YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP WE’D BE CRUISING
AND YOU WOULDN’T BE SITTING BOOHOOING ‘BOUT YOUR BRUISES

That’s some DOOM circa Madvillian stream-of-conscious creative rhyming.  In fact, that whole verse is amazing.  Listen to it:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Re-iKOvz8LI#t=2m39s
