RZA records handbag freestyle with Earl Sweatshirt

Earl Sweatshirt

Prodigal Odd Future MC Earl Sweatshirt has revealed that Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA will make a guest cameo on his new solo LP… rapping about his (RZA’s) handbag, apparently. Or should that be ‘manbag’? I honestly couldn’t say. The word he actually used was “purse”.

Anyway. Speaking to MTV about the collaboration, Sweatshirt said: “Dude, RZA dropped an eight minute, 32 second based freestyle the other day that started off with him talking about a purse. It was so tight. And it was not just any purse; it was his purse”.

Asked by a sceptical Tyler, The Creator – who was also present at the MTV interview – if this was really the case, Sweatshirt added: “I am not playin. When the song comes out, I’m gonna do hashtag #RZAsPurse”.

As to whether all eight minutes and 32 seconds of RZA’s purse verse will feature on the tbc long player, he said: “I’m not gonna use the whole thing. I just chopped it up”.
