We’ve shared a few year-end lists (and have more forthcoming), and with only ten days left in the year, so has pretty much everybody else. Earl Sweatshirt added his voice to the conversation by declaring his pick for the year’s best album, and it’s one that may have flown under your radar. Yesterday, the rapper took to Twitter to say that Days With Dr. Yen Lo by Ka is the greatest album of 2015.
Earl, who released I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside on March 23, wrote in a series of tweets, “REAL TALK, I HAVE NO PROBLEM ADMITTING THAT @BrownsvilleKa IS THE BEST RAPPER. HIS ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND OVERALL SKILL LEVEL IS UNCANNY. I DON’T HAVE THE PATIENCE TO SIT ON THIS WEBSITE AND EXPLAIN TO STUPID PEOPLE WHY KA IS THE BEST, IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THATS YOUR BAD.”
Ka was flattered by the compliment and tweeted back at Earl, calling him “one of the great writers of this generation.”
