A bit of an open secret: MellowHype, the duo of rapper Hodgy Beats and producer Left Brain, are probably the most consistent musical unit within the noisy and notoriously scattershot Odd Future crew, and their forthcoming album Numbers could well turn out to be great. One track that won’t appear on Numbers is “45,” a dizzy and stoned rap track that Hodgy posted on his Tumblr recently. Click over here to hear it (via Pitchfork).

  1. yes. after all the hype, the backlash, the backlash against the backlash, and c., blackenedwhite (the original version, mind you. can’t believe they cut that song with the amazing frank ocean hook about anime!) remains my most frequqently listened-to OF release. neither of these guys gets enough credit. left is easily tyler’s equal behind the boards, and while nobody’s mistaking hodgy for rakim anytime soon, he remains entertaining as fuck. can’t get enough of his lovably goofy one minute, menacing the next schtick.

    can’t wait for the record to drop
