Shows he's a shock value rapper mostly. Goes for shocking content in his own lyrics, but is offended by that Swift vid. I guess he wants to 'protect the culture'.

A gazillion people make twerk vids but those who take themselves too seriously cry wolf when there's twerking in a White Devil's vid.

With Yeezy partycrashing on Swift & 'Lord' Jamar protecting the culture I'd say Lil' Earl can rest assured the Elder Statesmen of Hiphop will make sure no one gets violated lol.

Earl hasn't done 'shock' stuff for like 4 years back when he was 15/16 and following Tylers lead.

I think its about right, I watched the video and it does seem a bit steretypical.

Its a record company move pushing Taylor to suck their dicks and play into the stereotypes.

You know she's been gangbanged by all the record execs.

Earl Sweatshirt perpetuates the stereotypes of white skateboard culture. He exploits it for his own personal gain.

He makes other black teens think its ok to wear VANS, attempt to "pop shove it" and steal caucasian slang like "radical, gnarly, & brah".

We caucs are growing tired of being pigeonholed, mocked and made fearful to eat mayonnaise sandwiches in public.

???? She's having fun for a video. How can you call her out when a human like that IGGY chick exists on this earth. Especially with the exposure and influence she currently has. Early needs some attention period

Thing is Taylor Swift will get shit for the video but she probably had little to do with the concept, even the director is not necessarily to blame. Its a lack of care on the medias part to not display stereotypes.

Swift isn't the first and won't be the last. So I agree with the feeling, but it goes nowhere.

Sorry, you must be right, I didn't check his latest album since I wasn't too impressed with the preceding one. Thanks for setting me straight.

I might check out his latest album now, find out what he has on offer lyrically these days.

Maybe Earl should watch the video before forming an opinion on it, then he can be as unjustifiably outraged as he wants.

This track is magnificent.

As for his latest album, it didn't really click with me... Earl is dope though.

Mark Romanek (director of the video) has responded to Earl's (and everyone else's) criticism:

"I'm a fan of his and I think he's a really interesting artist. (I posted a Vine to one of his tracks once.) But he stated clearly that he hadn't seen the video and didn't even intend to watch it. So, respectfully, that sort of invalidates his observations from the get-go. And it's this one uninformed tweet that got reported on and rehashed, which started this whole "controversy." We simply choose styles of dance that we thought would be popular and amusing and cast the best dancers that were presented to us without much regard to race or ethnicity. If you look at it carefully, it's a massively inclusive piece. It's very, very innocently and positively intentioned. And — let's remember — it's a satirical piece. It's playing with a whole range of music-video tropes and clichés and stereotypes."

"And this is why, I think, if Earl Sweatshirt was open-minded enough to take the four minutes to watch it, he might see what the larger, humanistic, and utterly color-blind message was intended to be."
