Earl Sweatshirt: I'm Not A Tough Guy

Rapper breaks silence on attack in New Zealand.

Published July 26, 2015

The break up of Odd Future didn't leave Earl Sweatshirt entirely vulnerable.

He launched his Ready To Leave Now tour this weekend in New Zealand with only a slight glitch. An overzealous fan jumped on stage and wrapped him up in what many believe was a bear hug gone wrong. 

Earl, startled, as the "friendly assault' crept up on from him from behind, responded with two quick ones before security stepped in and dropped the fan back into the pit.


He seemed to be still in shock for a moment afterwards, however the I Don't Like S**t, I Don't Go Outside Rapper was able to gather a more sage response later, via Twitter: "keep your hands to yourself and don't sneak up on n***as in the middle of soul bearing."

He then expounded, "I'm not a tough guy!! I don't like my personal space breached just like you. just respect n***as out here man not just me respect everybody." But perhaps, especially him, since he's, "really on some other s**t as of late n***a I just took my draws off with out taking my basketball shorts off to get in this jacuzzi."

Now that right there, that ish cray!
