Slide 1 of 10
10. Doris, Earl Sweatshirt
Thebe Neruda Kgositsile — the dazzling teenage rapper who for a period famously ”disappeared” to boarding school in Samoa, just as his fellows in Odd Future achieved viral liftoff — has a great story. On Doris, his official debut, the prodigal phenom reclaims his own tale over shadowy, off-center beats. On ”Hive,” he’s wry and riddling: ”So here I sit, eye in the pyramid/God spit it like it’s truth serum in that beer and then/Disappear again.” But unlike most brainy, restless 19-year-olds, he’s generous with his epiphanies, rapping about his absent father, his intense partying — and how not to carry a skateboard. Pay attention and you might even learn something. Best Track: ''Hive''
