Thebe Neruda Kgositsile (born February 24, 1994), better known by his stage name Earl Sweatshirt, is an American rapper, record producer, and disc jockey from Los Angeles, California. He originally went by the moniker Sly Tendencies in 2008, but soon changed it when Tyler, The Creator invited him to join his hip hop collective Odd Future in late 2009. He gained recognition and critical praise for his debut mixtape Earl, released in March 2010. Following its release, his mother sent him to a boarding school in Samoa until his eighteenth birthday, and he was not able to produce new music for a year and a half.

After returning to Los Angeles in February 2012, Earl rejoined Odd Future and started producing new music. Earl released his debut studio album, Doris in August 2013. His sophomore album, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt followed in March 2015. Both received widespread critical acclaim. He is currently signed to Columbia Records as well as his independent label Tan Cressida.
