Music: Earl Sweatshirt

You dont know Earl? Okay then I will have to let you know who he is because I really like his music and sound. So here we go!

Thebe Neruda Kgositsile (born February 24, 1994), better known by his stage name Earl Sweatshirt, is an American rapper and member of the Los Angeles-based hip hop collective Odd Future

In 2009, Tyler, The Creator discovered Earl Sweatshirt, then known as Sly Tendencies, via his MySpace account, where he recorded tracks for his Kitchen Cutlery mixtape. Although the mixtape was never finished or released, Earl eventually joined Tyler’s rap groupOdd Future. His debut studio album, Earl, was self-released March 31, 2010. Earl was named the 24th-best album of 2010 by Complex.

Despite overwhelmingly positive reviews, various sources indicated that Sweatshirt had stopped making music with Odd Future. Earl later expressed in an interview that his mother sent him to Samoa not because of his music or lyrical content, but because of his getting into trouble. Earl attended Coral Reef Academy, a therapeutic retreat school for at-risk boys, located outside of the Samoan capital of Apia. At Coral Reef Academy, Earl earned back privileges, and ultimately the opportunity to return home. 

On February 8, 2012, rumors spread around the internet that Sweatshirt had returned to the U.S. when a video of him surfaced on YouTube with a preview of a new song saying if viewers wanted “the full thing” they would have to give him 50,000 followers on Twitter. He also later confirmed on his new Twitter account that he had returned to his home in Los Angeles. Three hours passed and Sweatshirt reached 50,000 followers and did release a new song on his website, entitled “Home”, in which he ends the song with “…and I’m back. Bye.”

So a very good comeback for the rapper. He has now 2 albums to his name Earl (2010) and Doris (2013) underneath you will find some of my favorite songs from Earl himself.

It’s online! The video for Kika – Guess It’s Alright

Yes I am so excited it is finally online, the video I went to Paris for. Kika’s guess it’s alright! I had the privilege to do the styling for this Portuguese singer and to be in Paris with her and the rest of the crew to shoot her video there. I am very happy with the result, it fits the song very well. But off course I would like to hear what you think as well. Underneath you can view the video:

Behind the scenes: Videoclip Kika – Guess It’s Alright

So last week I went to Paris to style Portuguese singer Kika for her new video for the song Guess It’s Alright. We crossed Paris and shot at different locations like in front of the Eiffel tower and on the love lock bridge. I am very excited to see the end result, I hope you are too. For the people who don’t know Kika, she is a 17 year old Portuguese singer, she is signed to universal music and the song was produced by RedOne. Here is the lyric video for Guess It’s Alright:
