    Thebe Kgositsile (born February 24, 1994), better known by his stage name Earl Sweatshirt, is an American rapper and member of the Los Angeles alternative hip hop collective OFWGKTA.

    His work (as well as the work of his fellow OFWGKTA members) is noted for its often obscene content. His music has been well received online by some music websites, and his group has recently been featured in mainstream magazines such as The New Yorker, Thrasher, Spin, The Wire, and Billboard as well as appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and completing a mini-tour of the American east coast. His debut studio album, Earl, was released March 31, 2010 as a free digital download on the OFWGKTA website. Earl was named the 24th best album of 2010 by Complex. Earl's rapping style is notable for its almost natural flow, dark lyrical content and intricate wordplay. Earl is often considered one of the most talented rappers that make up what is considered the "New West" of hip-hop.

    Various sources indicate that Earl is not currently making music with OFWGKTA. Posts from Tyler, the Creator's Twitter and Formspring seem to indicate that Earl's mother will not grant permission to release any of Earl's music.

    Following an abrupt absence from the public eye, Complex Magazine claimed to have found Earl in April of 2011. Earl later confirmed his location at Samoa's Coral Reef Academy in an interview with The New Yorker. While there is speculation that he may leave when he becomes legally independent at 18 years of age, Samoan law is different from that of US law, with 21 being the legal age of adulthood. In the New Yorker interview, he also stated that he was not held against his will or forced to go to Samoa by his mother, former Deputy President of South Africa Baleka Mbete, and requested that the "Free Earl" Campaign be stopped because he felt that his mother was being wrongly villianized by Odd Future fans trying to support him and his music. Tyler, The Creator later denied the interview and stated that the interview was Earl's mother speaking in his position. Thebe attended New Roads High School in Santa Monica, California.
