I don’t think I’ve ever made this completely publicly known but I love Odd Future, Golf Wang, Tyler, Earl, Hodgy, Left Brain, MikeG, Domo, Jasper, Taco, Syd, Frank Ocean, and the whole rag tag bunch.
My reasoning isn’t just the music they put out (which I’m sure alot of people hate), it’s because of their creativity as a whole. They are essentially a “self sustaining” production company. They write, produce, and record, music, make videos, screw around, got picked up by Adult Swim for a TV show, create art, etc etc. I just think it’s really cool because they managed to do all this more or less themselves. And most of them are younger than I am.
Yesterday Tyler, as Young Nigga, OF’s “newest” (fake) member put out his first single, “Come Threw Looking Clean”, which is essentially him hilariously impersonating Lil B‘s free flowing based style of rapping. Apparently he is putting out a whole album entitled “Expensive Pasta” in the near future.
Now, just tonight another update was posted on the group’s tumblr stating, “Here at Odd Future, we Have Mellowhype, We Have EarlWolf, And Now, The Internet. Sunday At Midnight.”
I’m curious to see what the new project is all about (who knows it might be another joke) but we’ll see soon enough.
Normally I’d like to include some tunes but instead, just go to their Tumblr and download everything they have. Then go out and grab Tyler’s “Goblin” album and MelloHype’s “BlackendWhite”
Also they are currently on tour. Philly is sold out !!! (if somebody can get me a ticket?!? I’d like that)
