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.

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.

You’ll Never Guess How Tyler, The Creator Feels About U2’s Apple Stunt

It's pretty brave to come out against the new U2 album that was dropped onto everyone's computer last week, considering all the unanimous praise it's gotten. (Well...) Leave it to Tyler, The Creator to go against the grain: "GET OFF MY FUCKING PHONE. YOU COULDNT COME UP WITH AN ACTUAL… More »

In a new clip from Loiter Squad, Odd Future's sketch series for Adult Swim, Earl Sweatshirt plays a prisoner in a Scared Straight-style program.

Hear Tyler The Creator, Nick Cave, Katy Perry, And Others Cover “Daisy Bell”

Though it was a lovely little folk tune originating in 1892, "Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built For Two)" has been the subject of strange interpretations at least since Hal 9000 sang it in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
