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 goof… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Tamale” Video

Last night, Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator posted what's become the latest in a long string of antic, colorful, juvenile-as-fuck music videos, videos that couldn't be further removed from the cold and mesmerizing simplicity of his career-making "Yonkers" video. This one is for "Tamale," the goofiest song on his album Wolf, and… 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 »

The Internet – “Lincoln” (Feat. Left Brain & Mike G) Video

Way back in 2011, the Internet, the Odd Future duo of Syd The Kid and Matt Martians, released their Purple Naked Ladies, and they're just now getting around to releasing a video for the breezy album track "Lincoln." The song features contributions from two other Odd Future members, rapper Mike G and producer Left Brain,… More »

Earl Sweatshirt – “Hive” (Feat. Vince Staples & Casey Veggies) Video

The Odd Future rapper Earl Sweatshirt is finally getting ready to release Doris, his feverishly anticipated new album, and he's already shared videos for the early singles "Chum" and "Whoa." And now there's another one, for the album track "Hive," and it's further evidence that this kid is no fucking joke. The… More »

Earl Sweatshirt Doris Details

One of the year's most anticipated albums is Doris, the first album that the ridiculously talented Odd Future rapper Earl Sweatshirt has recorded since EARL, his head-spinning 2010 debut mixtape, and since he returned home from a Samoan reform school. Earl's been working on the album for months, and we've posted the tracks "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… 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 »

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 »

Coachella 2013 Saturday: The Postal Service, Phoenix, The Make-Up, & More

Before we get into Saturday, let's not bury the day's big lede: R. Kelly joined Phoenix on stage to perform his biggest crossover that isn't from the Space Jam soundtrack, "Ignition (Remix)." Not quite the Daft Punk cameo folks rumored, definitely worthy of its own post. Which is here. 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… More »

Stream Tyler, The Creator Wolf

On the heels of dropping the video for "IFHY," Tyler, The Creator has now offered a stream of his sophomore full-length Wolf in full. You already how Tom feels about it, but if you haven't taken a listen yet, you can see if your opinion lines up with his. Check it out below. 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 a… More »

Premature Evaluation: Tyler, The Creator Wolf

Is Tyler, The Creator really all that famous? I'm not sure that he is. He's internet-famous, certainly, and underground-popular, but he's not Jennifer Aniston. To hear Tyler himself tell it on Wolf, though, he can't walk through an amusement park or a Target without being mobbed by fans who want to take pictures with him. More »

Tyler, The Creator Wolf Tracklist: Laetitia Sadier, Frank Ocean, Not Dave Matthews

For a while now, a rumored, unconfirmed tracklist for Tyler, The Creator's forthcoming album Wolf has been floating around the internet, and the most surprising thing about it was that Dave Matthews was supposedly featured on one song. This seemed unlikely, but it also seemed like the sort of contrarian stunt-move that Tyler couldMore »

Tyler, The Creator @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg, Brooklyn 3/23/13

Tyler, The Creator played a small show this Saturday at Brooklyn's Music Hall Of Williamsburg. In typical Odd Future fashion, there was no opener, although Taco Bennet -- younger brother of Syd Tha Kyd of the Internet and OF's main tour DJ -- spun a small set before Tyler's performance. The rapper performed a range… More »

Earl Sweatshirt – “Whoa” Video (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

Late last year, the recently returned and ferociously talented young Odd Future rapper Earl Sweatshirt -- who, let the record show, is still a teenager -- gave us the introspective, endlessly compelling "Chum" and its stark, creeped-out video. But as Earl gleefully shows on "Whoa," his new collab with old buddy Tyler, The Creator,… More »

Watch Tyler, The Creator Return To Fallon

Perhaps the biggest moment in Odd Future's sudden rise to dominance came two years ago, when Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats bulldozed their way through Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, giving a thrillingly unstable performance of "Sandwitches." Last night, an older and more seasoned Tyler returned to the show, performing a couple of… More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Domo 23″ Video

I've given Odd Future a lot of leeway in the past. The blood-gargling sexual violence of their early records felt like intentional transgression and felt like a slap in the face, so even though it was wildly disturbing, it didn't turn me off from their music. Likewise the homophobia and the bad design decisions and… More »
