Odd Future affiliate Hodgy Beats has shared his latest release DENATAPE2, a sequel to 2009's Dena Tape and his first solo release since his 2013 untitled EP.

Download Domo Genesis Under The Influence 2 Mixtape

The Odd Future rapper Domo Genesis may be way less famous than crewmates like Frank Ocean or Tyler, The Creator, but he's improved by leaps and bounds as a rapper in the last few years. He's also got his own stoned, drifting boom-bap aesthetic that's distinct within the crew. Today, Domo shares Under The InfluenceMore »

Domo Genesis – “STRICTLY4MYNIGGAZ”

With the ascendance of Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, fellow Odd Future members like Hodgy Beats and Mike G and Domo Genesis have gotten a bit lost in the shuffle. Domo, for one, is not ready to let that happen. Last night, he shared "STRICTLY4MYNIGGAZ," the first taste of his forthcoming Under The InfluenceMore »

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – “Robes” (Feat. Earl Sweatshirt & Domo Genesis)

The head-busting Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs and the brain-expanding California producer Madlib have already teamed up for a series of great songs ("Thuggin'," "Shame," "City," "Deeper, "Harold's"), and their collaborative album Piñata is scheduled to arrive in a couple of months. BBC radio just debuted "Robes," which has Gibbs alongside Odd Future members Earl Sweatshirt… More »

MellowHigh – “Yu” Video

MellowHigh is the Odd Future duo of resident crew stoners Hodgy Beats and Domo Genesis, and we've posted a few of their tracks. Their new video for the new track "Yu," which the group directed themselves, is a bizarre spilt-screen affair that never comes together. Domo dances with some girls, Hodgy goofs around with a… More »

Tyler, The Creator, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, & Earl Sweatshirt – “Look”

We don't have any context on it, but four Odd Future rappers just showed up on one song, and it's a banger. The new track "Look" showed up online last night, and it's got Tyler, The Creator, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, and prodigal little brother Earl Sweatshirt all going in on a quietly vicious, synth-streaked… More »

Prodigy – “YNT” (Feat. Domo Genesis) Video

A few years ago, the veteran Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy linked with the producer Alchemist to release Return Of The Mac, a deeply excellent album of wizened soul-sampling New York tough talk. Prodigy and Alchemist have once again linked for a new collaborative album called Albert Einstein, and on the prettily slow-rolling track "YNT," they… More »

Watch Earl Sweatshirt’s Coachella Set

We saw Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt at SXSW back in March, and he made his Coachella debut on Friday night sporting tie-dye and a bucket hat. Flying Lotus (aka Captain Murphy) DJ'd, and the set included cameos from Earl's collaborators Domo Genesis, Vince Staples, and Tyler, The Creator. Now, you can hear Earl shout, "WHAT… More »

Watch Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, And Domo Genesis Play Letterman

Last night, Tyler, The Creator served as the musical guest on the Late Show With David Letterman, and he brought Odd Future compadres Earl Sweatshirt and Domo Genesis with him to do the RZA-channeling Wolf track "Rusty." In an incredibly strange bit of stagecraft, these three guys (minus Domo, who actually seemed pretty into the… More »

MellowHype – “Greezy” (Feat. Domo Genesis)

MellowHype's new album Numbers is imminent, and the Odd Future duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain are building anticipation by giving a bunch of new songs away in what they're calling MellowHype Week. Yesterday, we heard "Decoy." Today, they recruit Odd Future comrade Domo Genesis on the sinister synth jam "Greezy." Hear it below. More »

Download Domo Genesis & The Alchemist No Idols

For the first full-length Odd Future project since Channel Orange, Domo Genesis, the crew's resident sleepy-eyed stoner, has teamed up with the Alchemist, the veteran rap producer who has become something of a psych-rap visionary in recent years. Over the last couple of years, Domo has vastly improved as a rapper, and Alchemist is quietly… More »

Domo Genesis – “Elimination Chamber” (Feat. Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples & Action Bronson)

Do you ever get the feeling that someone is niche marketing directly to you? So: Four rappers I like, all going in hard over a chorus-free spaced-out Alchemist beat, and then naming the result after one of my favorite annual WWE events: How am I not going to like this? It's over. I'm helpless. So,… More »

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 ha… More »

Smoke DZA – “Ashtray” (Feat. Domo Genesis, Schoolboy Q)

Harlem's Smoke DZA will drop Rugby Thompson later this summer, a record that will be produced entirely by Harry Fraud and from which we've already heard the wrestler-referencing lead single "New Jack." Now, here's another cut from that release featuring like-minded rappers from a pair of distinctly different L.A. crews, Odd Future's Domo Genesis and… More »

MellowHigh – “Go”

A few days ago, MellowHigh, the Odd Future duo of Hodgy Beats and Domo Genesis, hit us with their Lex Luger-produced track "Timbs." Today, they've got another one called "Go," a prettily zoned-out track with production from Thelonius Martin. It sounds nice, and it's a welcome indication that MellowHigh are really becoming a thing. Download… More »

Hodgy Beats & Domo Genesis – “Timbs” (Produced By Lex Luger)

Last year, I interviewed Odd Future livewire Hodgy Beats and asked him about Odd Future's since-relaxed policy about refusing to work with most outside collaborators. Hodgy said, "I'm not hating or anything, but I don't want to be rapping over a Lex Luger beat. Why would I do that? I have my own beats." Whe… More »

Odd Future – “Rella” Video (NSFW)

Outside of a new track from Earl Sweatshirt, the Odd Future collective, as a group, has been relatively quiet lately (though rapper Mike G and Syd Tha Kid sideproject the Internet put out releases). As promised, the crew has come through with a new video, "Rella," which will be a track on their upcoming posse… More »

Domo Genesis & Wiz Khalifa – “Ground Up”

Some collaborations just make too much sense. Odd Future member Domo Genesis and actual rap star Wiz Khalifa are both such stoners that they both released albums called Rolling Papers at roughly the same time. For a minute, there was even a rumor that Odd Future was furious about Wiz for the transgression, but no,… More »

Hodgy Beats – “BKLYN” & MellowHigh – “Lift” (Feat. Juicy J)

Their stock may be falling, but the well-adjusted young people in the Odd Future rap collective are staying productive. The generally unhinged Hodgy Beats, for one, posted a couple of new songs on his Tumblr. One, "BKLYN," is a drifty solo track with production from one Thelonious Martin. The other, "Lift," is credited to MellowHigh,… More »

Download Domo Genesis Under The Influence Mixtape

Domo Genesis is the most weed-addled and probably the most pedestrian rapper in the much-feted Odd Future collective. But he's made big strides as a pure MC, and his new Under The Influence mixtape is the work of a solid, confident rapper. On the tape, Domo raps over time-honored soul-rap beats like Scarface's "Guess Who'… More »
