Like just about every album this year, rapper Earl Sweatshirt’s latest album came to the public via a surprise release. I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside is up on iTunes for pre-order, with “Grief” offered as an instant download for those fans who do buy the 10-track collection slated for March 23. 

Why exactly the album was rolled out early remains somewhat murky—but in a series of angry tweets throughout Monday night and Tuesday morning, it became clear that the collection was revealed sooner than the Odd Future rapper would have liked, and he was holding Sony Music responsible. (Example: “I WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK @SonyMusicGlobal 4 F—ING UP THE ROLL OUT PROCESS OF MY SHIT. SOMEONE GOTS 2 PAY 4 THEIR MISTAKES ! #SWEAT”)
