Odd Future – “NY (Ned Flander)” Video

Billed as a sequel to their "Rella" video, Odd Future's latest clip for "NY (Ned Flander)" is awash with similar bizarre imagery, where Tyler plays a rapping baby and Hodgy Beats plays a deadbeat. Tyler (Wolf Haley) directs, obviously. Watch it below. More »

Download Hodgy Beats Untitled EP

Running contra to their usual M.O., Odd Future's Hodgy Beats quietly dropped an EP over the weekend, a collection of laid-back, relatively pensive jams from one of Odd Future's most promising members. It's probably the best set of tracks the camp has squeezed out since, like, Goblin, so I'd say it's worth a flyer. It'… 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 o… 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… More »

Pusha T – “Oooh” (Feat. Hodgy Beats, Liva Don & Tyler, The Creator)

A few years ago, Clipse launched a clothing line called Play Cloths, and I'm not sure I've ever seen any non-Clipse human beings wearing their clothes. Nonetheless, Clipse rapper and recent Kanye beneficiary Pusha T recently cranked out a mixtape to go along with the Play Cloths holiday collection. It's creatively titled Play Cloths HolidayMore »

Hodgy Beats – “Crap” (Feat. Left Brain)

Hodgy Beats took to his Tumblr to drop "Crap," a track featuring Left Brain that might technically mean it's a MellowHype track, but unlike most of MellowHype's stuff it features Left Brain (crudely) rapping. After Left Brain's verse comes a somewhat atypical laid-back, stoned out meditation from Hodgy. Download the track down get up to… More »

Hodgy Beats & Jonti – “Nayoga”

Hodgy Beats is the rapping half of MellowHype and probably the most demonic onstage presence in the Odd Future crew, so it's something of a surprise to hear him kicking a googly-eyed love-rap over a squelching computer-funk beat on the new track "Nayoga." The track is a collaboration with the new Stones Throw addition More »

Hodgy Beats – “April 27″

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All's most shirtless member/frequent Tyler sideman/half of Fat Possum-signed duo MellowHype, Hodgy Beats, recently uploaded a quick new song titled "April 27," which is the date corresponding with fasting and mourning to commemorate Jews of Cologne massacred during the Second Crusade, and also with the birth of Fall… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Analog” (Live, Featuring Hodgy Beats & Syd Tha Kid)

It's unclear if the version of "Tron Cat" that leaked last week is the final mix from Tyler's forthcoming ">Goblin, and it is certain that this live version of "Analog" is not exactly how the song will sound on the Odd Future capo's XL debut. Imperfect though they may be for the task, sketche… More »

The Best Odd Future Interview

First of all give propers to Nardwuar The Human Serviette for wrangling the Odd Future crew into one place at one time during SXSW 2011. (Portraiture artist Ryan Muir can tell you how difficult this is.) And also give Narduwuar respect for choosing his location wisely: some sort of isolated rooftop, making their wandering… More »

Odd Future Make A Clip For Funny Or Die

So this month Tyler and his cabal crossed some sort of a divide from internet/forum phenoms to bona fide YouTube (and boobtube) stars, rapidly checking off apparent life goals of meeting Bieber and Diddy and being big upped from Kanye and filing tweets popping on @humblebrag's radar. And so… More »

Odd Future’s Performance On Fallon Is A Thing You Absolutely Should Watch

NBC found its must-see TV last night, thanks to an intense four-minute appearance from a shock-tricked hip hop troupe of teenagers from Los Angeles. Honors to Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats, with the help of Questlove (in black hoodie for necessary, bonus hardness) and Mos Def's Kool Aid swilled "SWAAAG"s delivered straight into camera… More »
