In a statement, Earl revealed that Some Rap Songs addresses the death of his father Keorapetse Kgositsile.
"Me and my dad had a relationship that's not uncommon for people to have with their fathers, which is a non-perfect one," Earl said. "Talking to him is symbolic and non-symbolic, but it's literally closure for my childhood. Not getting to have that moment left me to figure out a lot with my damn self."
Some Rap Songs is available for pre-order in a variety of formats here.
In the time since his last album, Earl has shared a handful of standalone tracks including "Balance," "Death Whistles," "Mirror," "Solace" and "Wind in my Sails."
