As Odd Future made its ascent to rap stardom last year, one of their key members, Earl Sweatshirt, was missing in action. After doing our own investigation here at Complex, we were able to determine that Earl was in Samoa enrolled in a youth program at the Coral Reef Academy. Now, Earl is back, filming videos and making live appearances, and even has a brand new record deal. But those of you still curious about what his life was like in Samoa should watch this video that was recently posted on his new fan site. Courtesy of Leila Steinberg and a group of artists who came to pick Earl up and bring him back to Los Angeles, the clip gives us a glimpse of his last days at Coral Reef Academy, the quarters where he lived, and a feel for the environment and general vibe of his program in Samoa. Seems like a pretty special place. Watch above.
