Alright, can’t believe I’m about to defend Tyler of all people…
I agree with a lot of the sentiments being expressed here about how the WGKTA aspect of OF is getting old, but I gotta say that what was a “man Tyler does a lot of dumb shit” line of thinking has turned into to a sweeping (and VERY mean-spirited) indictment of Odd Future and their music. Tyler’s antics don’t make “Yonkers” or Wolf any less compelling, nor do they invalidate the music made by his friends. Channel Orange and Doris aren’t suddenly less artistically worthy just because Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt are in Odd Future.
And say what you will about Tyler but he has a keen ear for musical talent. Its no accident that a coterie of talented young people have coalesced around him, the guy is pretty damn charismatic. And yes the members of Odd Future ARE talented, amazingly so considering their ages ( I direct you to “Oldie”, though honestly if you’re this vehement about your dislike of OF one great posse cut isn’t going to change your mind). Also Tyler is only 23, were you a paragon of common sense and virtue at 23?
And for those who insist on continuing the ICP comparisons, just stop. It holds no water and you just sound like you’ve got an axe to grind. You don’t like the music? Cool, different strokes and such. But there’s a difference between disliking the music and the really nasty vibes and attacks on their artistic credibility that I’m seeing here.
Pretty sure SXSW has officially turned into an open casting call for the Mad Max remake
Funny, I ate one of those Doritos Locos tacos and also threw up bright colors. That is some fantastic marketing synergy.
You know who doesn’t bother with this shit? Lee, that’s who.
Simple and Clean as fuck
Looks like Hyden has joined our merry band of War On Drugs proselytizers.
He also took a dig at Arcade Fire, saying they’re “stuck in a deep dive of quasi-ironic rock-star posturing” Looks like the Reflektor backlash is in full swing.
