Odd Future – “Sam (Is Dead)” Video

By Tom Breihan / June 29, 2012

Tyler, The Creator is not done with his directing career! Tyler did the video for “Sam (Is Dead),” a Tyler/Domo Genesis track from The O.F. Tape Vol. 2, under his Wolf Haley alias, and it’s a trip through Deer Hunter-type war-movie iconography. The seven-minute clip has some extra film-score music from Tyler, and it has cameos from O.F. associates like Early Sweatshirt and Trash Talk frontman Lee Spielman, whose band recently signed to Odd Future Records. There’s not much in the way of story or anything, and Tyler might think those closing shots are more mind-blowing than they are, but this is still easily the best Tyler-directed video since “Yonkers.” Watch it below.

The O.F. Tape Vol. 2 is out now on Odd Future Records.
