Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt has signed a deal to have his own label imprint, Tan Cressida, through Columbia Records, the New York Times reports. The rapper will be allowed to use the Odd Future logo on his releases, while the rest of the hip-hop collective will record for their own Odd Future Records, which is distributed by RED.
According to the Times‘ profile of Sweatshirt, he is planning to record a solo record as well as a collaboration with Tyler, the Creator called EarlWolf. The rapper is also working on a record with Odd Future producer Matt Martians.
Sweatshirt has only recently come back on the scene as a recording artist. As Odd Future’s music became popular online, the rapper was enrolled at the Coral Reef Academy in Samoa and had little time to write or record. Sweatshirt recently returned to the stage with the group in New York City and recorded a verse for the song “Oldie” on The OF Tape Vol. 2.
