Tyler, The Creator Reappropriates White Power Symbol For Gay Pride T-Shirt

Back before they got famous, the members of Odd Future sometimes referred to themselves as “black Nazis” and used swastikas in their imagery.

Premature Evaluation: Tyler, The Creator Cherry Bomb

Tyler, The Creator released Cherry Bomb, his fourth album if we’re counting Bastard as an album, in the closing hours of this year’s Coachella, a festival where he’s been a major presence for years.

Tyler, The Creator Pisses His Pants On Alternate Cherry Bomb Cover

Watch Tyler, The Creator And Kendall Jenner Exchange “Fuck You”s At Coachella

The VIP section is often the worst place to be during a music festival, packed with rich kids and celebrities who are too jaded to care about the actual music that’s going on in front of them.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Tom’s out in California surrounded by floral headbands and bros with GoPros over at Coachella this weekend, so I’m helping him out with this week’s roundup.

Tyler, The Creator – “Deathcamp” + “Fucking Young/Perfect”

Tyler, The Creator used his newly launched Golf Media app to announce a new album, Cherry Bomb, and share two new songs, “Deathcamp” and “Fucking Young/Perfect.” Both bear the distinct influence of Tyler’s hero-turned-friend Pharrell.

Mike G – “Highlights”

I’ve referred to Mike G as “Odd Future’s secret weapon” so many times that it’s basically a personal cliche. Where the other member of that crew get over on growling theatrics or head-spinning lyrical density, Mike is the one who lays back in the cut, oozing style and technical proficiency all over his tracks, never… More »

Tyler, The Creator & Erykah Badu To Guest In Black Dynamite‘s Police Brutality Musical

The 2009 movie Black Dynamite was a pretty great blaxploitation parody/homage, and since then, it’s become the basis for an Adult Swim cartoon that, I’m told, is also pretty great. Next month, the show will air a special hour-long musical episode about police brutality. The episode titled “The Wizard Of Watts” concerns what happens whe… More »

Watch Tyler, The Creator Do “Look At Wrist” With Father In Atlanta

Odd Future and Awful Records are two big, insular, tight-knit rap crews. They both built up reputations by throwing a ton of free music up on the internet.
