Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesFriday MP3 Shuffle: Happy Birthday Earl Sweatshirt Edition

Today on the MP3 Shuffle we wish a very happy birthday to Thebe Neruda Kgositsile aka Earl Sweatshirt. Even though he’s only 23, he’s already made a name for himself as one of the next generation of Hip-Hop stars as one of the members of Chicago rap collective Odd Future, a solo act (via his critically acclaimed album I Don't Like Sh*t, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt) and member of several other projects with fellow artists like Tyler, the Creator and Na’kel.. The young man obviously has many more years ahead of him than behind, but he seems to be positioned just right for a long career in the music business, although what form that career takes isn’t set in stone. As a producer, songwriter, and occasional actor, there are a lot of avenues open to him; He could end up his generation’s Common or Ice Cube, or maybe something else nobody's though of yet.

For now, let’s say “Happy Birthday” with another round of the Shuffle: Take your MP3 player, press the "shuffle" button, and share the first 10 songs you hear:

1. The Police - Spirits in the Material World (Ghost in the Machine)

2. Avery R. Young - Groun(d) (booker t. soltreyne: a race rekkid)

3. Aphex Twin – Boy-Girl Song (MTV’s Amp)

4. Dave Matthews Band - So Much to Say (Crash)

5. The Micronaut - Trapez (Forms)

6. Dead Gaze - Runnin’ on the Moon (Brain Holiday)

7. Spandau Ballet - Through the Barricades (Gold: The Best of)

8. Bob Kayil - Tie Me Tight (The Complete Motown Singles)

9. Foots - Hollers (Parchman Farm: Photographs and Field Recordings: 1947-1959)

10. Flying Lotus - Never Catch Me (feat. Kendrick Lamar) (You’re Dead)
