Download MellowHype’s INSA Mixtape

Odd Future members Hodgy Beats and Left Brain have been releasing music under the name MellowHype for a few years now, the best of which is probably 2010’s mixtape-turned-studio-debut BlackenedHype. They followed that up with 2012’s Numbers and last year added Domo Genesis to the equation for MellowHigh. They’re back to being just a duo… More »

Hodgy Beats – “Nowadays” (Feat. Left Brain) Video

The Odd Future crew made their collective name on free mixtapes, but at this point, Hodgy Beats might be the only member who still cranks them out every once in a while. Hodgy’s last tape, the Untitled 2 EP, is about a year old, and he’ll follow it up this Friday with a new one… 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 »

Hodgy Beats – “Alone” Video

A month ago, Hodgy Beats, an Odd Future rapper and one half of the duo MellowHype, released his Untitled 2 EP. And now he’s made a video, one that he co-directed with Ian Flanagan, for “Alone,” the EP’s opening track. It’s a hallucinatory affair, with Hodgy trapped in a room where everything appears to be… More »

Download Hodgy Beats’ Untitled 2 EP

In the past year or so, Odd Future members Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt, and (to a lesser extent) Tyler, The Creator have all stepped into the spotlight, coming across more as individual artists than as pieces of a vast, unified movement. Hodgy Beats, the firebreathing rapping half of MellowHype, has been a bit left behind… More »

Hodgy Beats – “Years”

When debating the merits of each member of Odd Future, Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, and Frank Ocean are the easy touchstones for Best Member. But when you swim through the depth of their catalogue, a lot of the underdogs’ talent is tantamount to the Big Three’s. OF’s “other” R&B act the Internet make innovative… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “IFHY” Video

“IFHY” is one of a couple of romantic-obsession songs from Tyler, The Creator’s depressing trudge of a new album Wolf, and the subject matter is not exactly new material for that guy. But the new video, which Tyler directed under his Wolf Haley alias, is something different, and creepy, and disturbing. Tyler, wearing an ElephantMore »

Hodgy Beats – “Break Ya Neck”

OF crew member Hodgy Beats stopped by Ruby Hornet’s Closed Session series over the summer and today the fruit of that work — a jazzy single called “Break Ya Neck” — popped up online. It’s produced by beatmaker Thelonious Martin and you can nab it below. More »

Toro Y Moi – “So Many Details (Remix)” (Feat. Hodgy Beats)

Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator has been a vocal fan of Toro Y Moi for as long as he’s been in the public eye, and he worked with Toro on the new song “Hey You” a couple of months ago. And now Tyler’s Odd Future buddy Hodgy Beats contributes a verse to a remix… More »

MellowHype – “Grill”

MellowHype, the Odd Future rap duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain, will release their new album Numbers next week, and they’ve been releasing a steady stream of tracks online for months. And now here’s another one: The queasy, lurching “Grill,” on which the group pulls the delightfully old-school move of spelling out their ow… 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 »

MellowHype – “Decoy”

In celebration of the release of next months’s Numbers, the new record from Odd Future’s Hodgy Beats and Left Brain’s MellowHype subgroup, they’re posting a new track every day and calling it MellowHype Week.

MellowHype – “La Bonita” Video

MellowHype, the Odd Future duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain, will release their new album Numbers this fall. Their single “La Bonita” is all about Spanish women, so the new video goes way over-the-top on Latino imagery: Hodgy in Day Of The Dead skeleton facepaint, Left Brain dressed like a matador, a mariachi band… More »

MellowHype – “La Bonita”

Today Odd Future subset MellowHype — the duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain — announced that they will be putting out their LP Numbers this October, also dropping the lead single “La Bonita.” It’s a quick-hitting, steel-drum-sampling, sex-obsessed burst of color. Stream it below. More »

MellowHype – “Fakuoy”

You’d expect the champagne to still be flowing at Odd Future headquarters after the seismic success of Frank Ocean, but the other members of the crew seem to be hard at work today. We’ve already heard the Domo Genesis posse cut “Elimination Chamber,” and now there’s a new track from MellowHype, the duo of Hodgy… 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 »
