    I was recently reading an interview on Pitchfork.com in which the journalist interviews up-and-coming rapper Earl Sweatshirt.

    Icon For Hire Promo

    I’d literally never heard of Icon for Hire before today. I doubt many people have, though, judging by the confused expression you had on your face when you clicked on this link out of a unique blend of boredom and morbid curiosity. Having said that, they did release an album in 2011 that hit the…
