Aaron McCann is an aspiring stand-up comedian from Ireland who flew all the way to Los Angeles for Odd Future’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival last weekend.

Tyler, The Creator is always an interesting watch when he’s on television, whether he’s goofing around on Loiter Squad or having a fascinating talk with Larry King.

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 MARKETING IDEA? FUCK @U2 I… More »

Watch Odd Future’s Scared Straight Parody

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. The results are bizarre — for example, he brags to kids that he was already running a Fortune 500 company at 12 years old. Tyler, The Creator plays one of the… More »

Watch Tyler, The Creator & IceJJFish’s “I Just Bought A Bugatti (I’m Happy)” Video For Loiter Squad

A few years ago Tyler, The Creator punked the music press by announcing the signing of a new Odd Future rapper named Young Nigga. When the anticipated new signee’s song appeared online, he turned out to be a character Tyler invented for his own amusement. That character popped up on Odd Future’s Adult Swim serie… More »

ATTN: Jennifer Lawrence, Watch Larry King Interview Tyler, The Creator

Today Larry King Now (a web show on Hulu, apparently) featured an interview with Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator. It’s an extremely interesting video where Tyler talks openly and honestly about where he came from and his ambitions for the future.

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. Now artist Mark Ryden (whose influential album artwork includes Tyler, The Creator’s Wolf cover) has put together a compilatio… More »

Tyler, The Creator, Katy Perry, Weird Al Cover “Daisy Bell” For Mark Ryden’s The Gay Nineties

I don’t know if any actual music-industry figures could’ve made this happen, but Mark Ryden, a pop-art painter who’s done a ton of album covers over the years, has lined up an impressive and all-over-the-place lineup of musicians to cover the same song on one album. This past weekend, Ryden opened a show called The… More »

Watch Pharrell’s Star-Studded Coachella Performance

While the most famous thing by far on the Coachella stage was Pharrell’s hat, the man himself managed to wrangle up enough star power to compete. Last night’s performance was a revolving door of celebrities including guest appearances from Nelly (“Hot In Herre”), Snoop Dogg (Lion, whatever) (“Drop It Like It’s Hot” & “Beautiful”), Busta… More »

Tyler, The Creator SXSW Statement: That Wasn’t A Riot

Last week, during a SXSW day show at the Scoot Inn, Tyler, The Creator told the fans lined up outside the venue — and there were a lot of them — to push their way in. They did. And when Tyler was leaving Austin, Austin police arrested him and charged him with inciting a riot,… More »

Tyler, The Creator Almost Started A Riot At SXSW

One contender for the most thrilling performance I’ve ever witnessed at SXSW was Odd Future’s show at the Scoot Inn in 2011, the year the chaotic skate-rat rap crew was all anybody could talk about in Austin. It was total madness in a good way — the kind of anarchy you want out of a… More »

Future – “Move That Dope” (Feat. Pharrell Williams & Pusha T) Video

Future’s trap-spaceship banger “Move That Dope” is easily my favorite rap song of 2014 thus far, and it’s probably my favorite song period. For a music video, it deserves nothing less than, like, a Paul Thomas Anderson film, and that’s more than director Benny Boom is capable of. But Boom has still put together a… More »

Hear Hudson Mohawke Reveal The Original Version Of Kanye’s “Bound” Feat. Tyler, The Creator

Producer Hudson Mohawke played what is believed to be the original version of Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ during his DJ set in Leeds on Saturday. Different from the released anthem that listeners will always remember for its Kim-on-a-motorcycle video, this version — circulating under the name “Bound 1″ — is more piano-driven and features a… More »

Watch Tyler, The Creator & Earl Sweatshirt Perform “Garbage” At The 2013 VGX Awards

Tyler, The Creator had a song called “Garbage” in Grand Theft Auto V, and he showed up at the video-game-honoring VGX Awards to perform the track with Earl Sweatshirt in tow. It’s a typically grimy and foreboding Tyler production but with some excellent brass parts that make the song sound appropriately ceremonious for the occasio… More »

Pharrell – “Happy” 24-Hour Music Video

The year of Pharrell is coming to an end, but not without this pretty huge finish. “Happy,” a song from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, has been made into what’s billed as the world’s first 24-hour music video.
