Earl Sweatshirt fans are eagerly awaiting the release of his as-yet-untitled third album, but while the rapper recently tweeted that the wait for new music was "almost over," no drop date was announced. Whenever it does come, it'll be worth it, according to The Alchemist. "listened to his new album again last night that shit is a masterpiece," the legendary hip-hop producer wrote in response to a fan's question about new music. Since this is a producer who's worked with everyone from Mobb Deep to Kendrick Lamar, The Alchemist's statement will only heighten the already fast-building anticipation.
