Stream Earl Sweatshirt’s Screwed-Down ‘Guild’
With a lead-off verse from... Mac Miller
“Guild” is the third leak from Earl Sweatshirt’s major label debut Doris, and it features a lead-off verse from one Mac Miller, the one-time frat-rap icon who has gradually turned into a weeded-out L.A. weirdo. Over a tempo-free slow-mo beat, Earl and Miller screw their voices and spit goofy bars that resemble the fever-dream fantasies of Action Bronson and Riff Raff (“In Myrtle Beach with a purple fleece / Hotel lobby’s playing ‘Für Elise”).
The track — which was recorded at Miller’s home studio in the L.A. hills — reminds of MF Doom’s most supremely stoned trifles. Also, Miller asks Lil B to hear his prayers. (You and Kevin Durant, both, dude.)
