“Hive” is the new single from Earl Sweatshirt’s upcoming album Doris, and it exicitingly coincides with a video that is equally interesting and worrying as the music. Receiving assistance from two other LA pin-ups in Casey Veggies and Vince Staples, Earl strings together tounge-twisting, strict-flowing bars into seemingly infinite verses in a way in which we’ve come to expect and admire from the young artist. Aside from Earl’s parts, which prove to be relievingly idiosyncratic with each play of the video, Staples’ verse is particularly impressive.
As you might already know, Doris drops on August 20. You can watch the video below and purchase “Hive” ahead of the album (or preorder the whole thing) on iTunes.
