Is Earl Sweatshirt back? Yes? No? Maybe?

Update (2/9/12): Overnight @earlxsweat reached 50K, and so as promised, the full song, titled either "Home" or "Thanks, James," has been posted at terttlefer.com. Have a listen.

If Tyler, the Creator is to be believed, Earl Sweatshirt is back. Well, er, that's the conclusion we're all jumping to it seems based on a Tweet from Tyler alerting us that Thebe Kgositsile, better known to the world-at-large, of course, as Earl Sweatshirt, now has a Twitter account. And on that account, you'll find a tweet with a link to a snippet of a new song apparently called, appropriately, "Home." That tweet was preceded by another promising to release the full song if @earlxsweat reaches 50K followers (he's at 32K now). Perhaps Earl has indeed returned from his presumed exile in Samoa. Or not. You never know with these provocateurs. It's probably worth noting that Earl does turn eighteen in a few weeks. Guess we'll find out. In the meantime, page down to see the video and the tweets.
