The members of Odd Future possess witty and unpredictable talent, much like the Wu-Tang Clan, whom they are at times compared to. So the fact that the RZA is dropping a guest verse on Earl Sweatshirt's upcoming album shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, even if the subject matter is.
"Dude, RZA dropped an eight-minute, 32-second based freestyle the other day that started off with him talking about a purse. It was so tight," Earl revealed when he, Tyler, the Creator, Hodgy Beats and Jasper Dolphin swung through the MTV Newsroom on July 25. "And it was not just any purse; it was his purse."
The news even took Tyler by surprise. "RZA has a f---in' purse?" he questioned while laughing.
"I am not playin'," Earl confirmed. "When the song comes out, I'm gonna do hashtag #RZAsPurse."
Now Earl is back in the fold and working on his own solo LP. The nimble-tongued lyricist didn't give too many details about the project but was confident the RZA would appear, even if he isn't going to use the entire eight-minute verse. "I'm not gonna use the whole thing. I just chopped it up," he said.
