All eyes are on Earl Sweatshirt as he gears up for the August 20 release of his highly-anticipated album Doris. On The Neptunes-produced “Burgundy” featuring Vince Staples, the Odd Future rapper addresses fame (“So don’t tell me that I made it, only relatively famous”) and his father.
“I’m afraid I’m gonna blow it/ When them expectations rising because daddy was a poet,” raps the 19-year-old in reference to South African poet Keorapetse Kgositsile.
Doris is already receiving praise from critics including the Los Angeles Times, who proclaimed it as “one of the best albums of the year.”
