It’s been some time since the last issue of Mass Appeal, and to celebrate it’s return, Earl Sweatshirt and Blake Anderson will be featured on the cover of issue 52. Not only that, but the cover photo was taken by none other than Odd Future’s own Sagan Lockhart.
Issue #52 features front cover subjects Blake Anderson, from Comedy Central’s hit show “Workaholics,” and elusive Odd Future wunderkind, Earl Sweatshirt. Writer Gabe Alvarez interviews the two about their unlikely friendship and their personal quirks:
“I think people either expect me to be one of three things, and that’s either funny, drunk or high. And I’m usually at least one of those things at all times.”— Blake Anderson on the public’s perception of him.
” . . .Mystery is the fuckin’ best when it comes to music, though. Like I wish Fly Lo had stayed Captain Murphy forever. Like [if] you’d never seen DOOM’s face. Like you never truly [knew] what happened with Eminem and his childhood and shit. Andre 3000 has done like 12 verses since 2002 and is like the best. So being mysterious, if used correctly, can work in your favor.” — Earl Sweatshirt on music and mystery.
