Frank Ocean Raps on Earl Sweatshirt's "Sunday"

Did the R&B crooner reference his fight with Chris Brown on new 'Doris' track?
 / 

We're only a week away from the release of Doris, Earl Sweatshirt's highly anticipated debut album, and with that, the rapper dropped "Sunday," his collaboration with Frank Ocean.

Over a slow, dusty organ and grimy live drums, Earl gets typically introspective, dealing with fame and its relationship to, well, relationships. But it's Ocean's quasi-spoken word rap that highlights this track.

Possibly referencing his parking lot fight with Chris Brown earlier this year, Ocean raps, "Forgot you don’t like it rough, I mean he called me a faggot/I was just calling his bluff/I mean how anal am I gon' be/When I’m aiming my gun/And why’s his mug all bloody, that was a three on one?/Standing ovation and Staples I got my Grammy’s and gold." For what it's worth, Ocean's fight with Brown happened on a Sunday night.

Earl, for his part, hasn't been shy about releasing Doris tracks, having put out "Chum," "Guild," "Whoa," "Hive" and "Burgundy," as well as performing new track "Molasses" live.  

Doris features production by the Neptunes, RZA, Tyler, the Creator and Alchemist and guest spots by Mac Miller, Vince Staples, Domo Genesis and Casey Veggies.
