Earl Sweatshirt, Tan Cressida Label: Sony Teams With Odd Future Rapper for New Imprint

Two months after his release from the Samoan retreat for at-risk boys where he spent the majority of his crew Odd Future‘s rise to fame, Earl Sweatshirt has signed a deal with Sony Records to release his debut LP via his new imprint Tan Cressida.

In a move indicative both of Earl’s prominence amongst his peers and the distinction between the 18-year-old MC and his rambunctious cohorts, his signing was revealed in a lengthy New York Times feature.

The deal allows him to record freely with his groupmates and feature the Odd Future logo on his albums, stipulations which required Earl to turn down “significantly higher advances.”

In addition to Earl’s long-awaited solo, which does not yet have a release date, his label will also release EarlWolf, a collaboration album Earl and Tyler, the Creator, and an album by OFWGKTA member The Internet.
