    If you like Earl Sweatshirt, listen to Frank Leone

    Moody, growling beats? Check. Morbid self-confidence? Check. Spooky hooded figures with only the eyes lit up? Check. Three surface-level, sprawling similarities? Check, but Frank Leone and Earl Sweatshirt are cut from some similar cloth.

    Leone's latest release, enterWILD is a sprawling, experimental encyclopedia of new age hip-hop. He's taking the kind of chances that Earl and Odd Future championed in their early days, though I wouldn't hold your breath waiting to see Leone's version of "Loiter Squad."
