03/29/2012 mp3: Earl Sweatshirt- Drop (Tako Tomago Remix)
Earl Sweatshirt’s ‘Drop’ freestyle is one of the earliest examples of why Earl deserves the massive amount of hype he has and why Odd Future earned their current fame in the first place. Tako Tomago decided to take that track and warp it into a mellowed out remix with some soft synths and slowed-pace. At first I anticipated a typical chopped and screwed treatment to the song but Tako Tomago really worked at reworking the track’s feel and vibe. It’s an entirely different listen than the original and gives plenty of incentive to relisten to some of Earl’s best lyrics let alone one of the strongest O.F. verses.
