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)
