Santigold Talks Collaboration with Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt
She took her time putting the finishing touches on her new album, but now that Santigold is finished with ‘Master of My Make-Believe,’ she’s hitting the ground running — and fans can expect to hear more music in the not-too-distant future, including her collaboration with Odd Future‘s Earl Sweatshirt.
Mr. Sweatshirt, who recently completed his stint in a Samoa military school, has returned to action and is hard at work reclaiming his status as one of the most in-demand MCs in hip-hop — but while others have been clamoring to work with him, he’s been pining to work with Santigold. She talked about their meeting with MTV, recalling how it all started with a tweet.
“I saw a tweet. I guess somebody re-tweeted that Earl said ‘I like Santigold, would love to do something.’ And I was like, ‘OK!’ ” she told the network. “I mean, he’s so cool, he’s such a cute, awesome dude. And they were at Coachella, and they were the first ones up onstage — we invite people up onstage [during her performance] — and they came and did some major booty-shaking moves. And a couple of them came to our MOCA show in LA. We did this event that Mike D curated … and they came there and caught the show.”
As for when fans can hear the finished result, Santigold doesn’t have a firm date, but she says it’s definitely on her list of things to do. “I don’t have many plans these days. I just kinda, like, soon as I can get stuff done. It’s something I really want to do, so hopefully it will be done soon.”
