It’s always interesting to follow the path of a beat. In the case of Earl Sweatshirt’s “Centurion” beat, it started off in other hands. Here’s the background, courtesy of producers Christian Rich:
It’s an old unreleased song from 2011 with Snoop that Buddy never put out. We ended giving the track to Earl Sweatshirt which is called “Centurion” from his Doris album. It’s not a real release and won’t ever be, just a throwback track from a few years ago.
