Earl Sweatshirt’s Some Rap Songs is morphing into Some Rap Tour. Today, the rapper announced he is embarking on the A Tour Starring Earl Sweatshirt & Friends in March, featuring MIKE, BbyMutha, Na-Kel Smith, LIV.E and Black Noi$e. In addition to the tour announcement, Sweatshirt also released a short film, Nowhere Nobody, directed by Naima Ramos-Chapman and Terence Nance (HBO’s Random Acts of Flyness). Over eight surreal minutes, the audience is introduced to Sweatshirt, who plays a basketball coach who uncovers a man wrapped in ivy — among, predictably, given its surrealist premise, many other things.

In a January profile with Pitchfork, Earl revealed that Some Rap Songs fulfilled his album requirement at Columbia.

“Figuring out how you can be radical from within the system breaks your head,” Earl said. “That’s where I’m really at: that frustrating-ass place. And this is the best attempt I got. Only so much can happen above ground…I’m excited to be free because then I can do riskier shit.”
