For the past week, basically all I've been listening to is Odd Future. Check my last.fm if you don't believe me. They're young skater dudes from Cali who can out-rap practically anyone in the game, and they do it with swag-vulgarity. You can download all their mixtapes, albums, and see what they're doing at http://oddfuture.tumblr.com
Odd Future AKA Wolf Gang AKA Golf Wang AKA OFWGKTADGAF is 11 members deep.
The leader/founder of OF is Tyler, The Creator, who is 19. He makes a good majority of the beats for Golf Wang, and they usually encompass bassy, droney beats with minimalistic melodies, perfect for their evil and offensive verses. He just released a new music video from his upcoming album Goblin called "Yonkers", and it's pretty shocking/slightly NWS, which is fucking awesome.
This is another awesome one from his well-received album, Bastard.
Tyler's younger brother, Earl Sweatshirt (16), is the 2nd out of 2 (must run in the family) god tier rappers in the group. Unfortunately, right after his album,Earl dropped, his mom sent him to boot camp, cause she's a bitch, i guess.
This is the crazy-awesome album art and the title track music video (the first thing I saw from anything OF)
Other guys from Wolf Gang (who unfortunately I haven't gotten into as much so I won't post music) include Hodgy Beats (rapper) and Left Brain (producer), who together form MellowHype, Domo Genesis, Jasper Loc aka Jasper Dolphin, The Jet Age of Tomorrow (producer of sick sci-fi beats), Mike G, Frank Ocean, Syd tha Kid, and Taco Bennett.
These dudes are also hilarious:
Oh and by the way, they'll be on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON on 2/16, so get with it.
