Earl Sweatshirt Releases Surrealist Short Film “Nowhere, Nobody,” Announces U.S. Tour

Earl Sweatshirt enlisted two of the minds behind HBO’s sketch series Random Acts of Flyness for his new short film “Nowhere, Nobody.” Terence Nance and Naima Ramos-Chapman co-wrote and co-directed the eight-minute clip, which features six songs from Sweatshirt’s November album Some Rap Songs. The short opens with Earl coaching a youth basketball team to victory, set to “Nowhere2go,” before shifting to a string of scenes framed as the game’s aftermath. Sweatshirt bathes in silence, naps in bed with music pounding the walls, and stares down a sculpted white bust. Other images include a mother painting a baby doll black, set to “Red Water,” and a coffin stuffed with severed white marble hands, set to “Playing Possum.” Unexpected cuts and transitions disorient the viewer in the fashion of Nance’s show.

Sweatshirt also announced a 31-date U.S. tour starting March 23 in New Orleans and wrapping May 6 in Atlanta. Bbymutha, MIKE, Mid90s star Na-Kel Smith, Liv.e, and Black Noi$e will serve as openers. Tickets become available here on Friday after a one-day pre-sale tomorrow.
