Continuing to put on for the next generation of artists, Earl Sweatshirt taps Maxo for Whole World over an Alchemist production. Maxo’s voice is soothing like watching a wide-open Steph Curry three-pointer on loop, and his lyrics are straightforward, leaving few lines up to interpretation throughout the track. Maxo makes hip hop cliches his own and I respect that.
Similar to what we’re used to hearing from Earl as of late, he retains the lo-fi stream-of-consciousness sensibilities established in his past work, whilst trading introspection with a much more tender sense of retrospection. Stream the new release down below.
