Today’s Song: “Warlord Leather” – Earl Sweatshirt & Action Bronson

Earl Sweatshirt and Action Bronson, two of modern hip-hop’s biggest names of the past few years, both dropped albums a week ago, with I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt, and Mr. Wonderful being released on the 23rd and the 24th, respectively.

To commemorate their new albums, Sweatshirt and Bronson put out a bonus track together and teamed up on a hard-hitting beat by producer extraordinaire and frequent Bronson collaborator, The Alchemist. The song is called “Warlord Leather”, and the beat features some ominous guitar and bass riffs with a fantastic break beat running throughout.

Earl comes through with a great verse, utilizing his trademark complex flows and imagery, while Bronson showcases his usual, more humorous style (“Your bitch pussy smells like Sway’s hat/I’m like Swayze mixed with Sajak, in a straight jacket”). Listen bellow.
