Last night, Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt teamed up with frequent collaborators BADBADNOTGOOD for a very smooth, yet memorable performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. They gave the audience live versions of "Huey" and "Grief" -- two self-produced tracks off Earl's latest album I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside, which was released on March 23rd. Also, watch BADBADNOTGOOD's performance of their song "Kaleidoscope" as a web exclusive.

Earl and his Odd Future cohorts are known for their outlandish behavior. While this performance was incredibly mellow and relaxed as Earl effortlessly delivers his rhymes to the audience, Earl throws a curveball at the end and brings out legendary experimental musician Gary Wilson, whom he sampled on "Grief." Instantly, Wilson pulls out some duct tape and starts wrapping it around his face to close the show. Points for shock value Earl.
The second video is an 8+ minute jazz piece by BBNG from their album III, which you can listen to here on Zumic. The group are rooted in jazz, but they also made an excellent album with Ghostface Killah earlier this year called Sour Soul.
