Odd Future - "Sam (Is Dead)" Video

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.

  1. “Big Beast” was longer, better and didn’t fuck around with a minute of credits.

    However, this video is still great. Just don’t want rubberjohnny confusing anybody that this is the best video of the year.

  2. Pretty cool. Vid for “Rella” was more of a highlight for me, but Tyler’s direction is always legit.

  3. “Early Sweatshirt”

  4. I’m starting to think that Tyler is a better director than rapper. OF is one of the only musical acts I can think of in which the videos don’t completely suck.
