Earl Sweatshirt Stands Behind His Stance on “Magna Carta Holy Grail”

Posted By on July 16, 2013

Odd future member Earl Sweatshirt took to Twitter last week to express his feelings about Jay-Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail”. The immediate backlash was not something Earl anticipated.

The rapper recently told MTV:

“I was not expecting that,” Earl told MTV News before hitting the stage at his Vitamin Water Uncapped performance in New York on Monday. “Because I wasn’t trying to come foul at Jay-Z, it’s just not my favorite album by him, but I f—-ing love Jay-Z. … I stand by the fact that I don’t like that album, but I love Jay-Z. I just thought he didn’t sound like Jay-Z. I’m not delusional enough to think that people don’t change. Everyone changes. I sound a lot different than I did a while ago too and I’m sure there’s people that’s not fans of that and I’m accepting of that.” (MTV)
