Skate-rap king Earl Sweatshirt comes to the Neptune
Earl Sweatshirt has always been known as the youngest member of L.A.’s raucous skate-rap collective Odd Future, but his recent album, “Doris,” cemented the notion that he’s also its best rapper. With a style and deadpan delivery that echoes underground legends like MF Doom more than it tries to duplicate the dumbed-down, autotuned pop standard, Sweatshirt’s retro/modern raps are some of the sharpest, purest out right now.
9 p.m. Wednesday at the Neptune Theatre, 1303 N.E. 45th St., Seattle; $21.50-$25 (877-784-4849 or www.stgpresents.org).
