The combination of Lil Herb and Earl Sweatshirt isn’t exactly the most common pairing, but their newest collaboration is certainly something I can get used to. “Knucklehead” has a downbeat, soulful instrumental that acts as the perfect canvas for Herb’s heartfelt, street-inspired rhymes and Earl’s intricate wordplay. The styles of Herb and Earl are vastly different, but the two mesh very well on this joint. Overall, this is a really dope track from the odd couple. It’s also the latest installment in Red Bull’s 20-day, Advent-style campaign in which they will release one track a day for 20 days.
Listen below & enjoy.
