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. It’s a huge, happy, dance-y, smile-y adventure of a thing with cameos from Jamie Fox, Steve Carrell,… More »

At last year’s inaugural Odd Future Carnival, Lil Wayne showed up as a surprise guest performer. At this year’s event, which went down Saturday in L.A., Yeezus was in the building.

Watch Tyler, The Creator On Arsenio

We now live in a society where Arsenio Hall and Tyler, The Creator will sit across from each other, on television, and Arsenio will tell Tyler “you’re very free with your tweets.” Even six months ago, this would be unthinkable. Tyler was a guest on last night’s episode of the revitalized Arsenio show, and he… More »

The 10 Best Moments From The 2013 YouTube Music Awards

After an ambitious and awkward 90-minute production, the inaugural YouTube Music Awards have disappeared into a cloud of blue chalk dust. The ceremony, streamed live from a warehouse in New York, attempted to capture the madcap spirit of early MTV and only occasionally succeeded — and if success means a lot of eyeballs on the… More »

Watch Odd Future’s Horror Movie The Ghost Of The Hotel

Cleary, Tyler, The Creator is the Orson Welles of this rap shit. Last night, the Odd Future figurehead posted a cinematic masterpiece of a six-minute horror movie called The Ghost Of The Hotel. It stars Tyler, Earl Sweatshirt, Jasper Dolphin, and Taco, all of them using silly gravelly voices and one of them running around… More »

Tyler, The Creator Goes Off On Will.I.Am

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned Tyler, The Creator Twitter rant to start your day off right. Tyler, Odd Future’s ringleader, met Black Eyed Peas ringleader will.i.am (both groups are their own sort of circus, no?) at an unnamed star-studded event recently. Will.i.am offered some career advice along the lines of, “You make a decisio… More »

Tyler, The Creator & Flying Lotus: No Fans Of The YouTube Music Awards

For a second there, it looked like the YouTube Music Awards could be some kind of game-changer: Creative direction from Spike Jonze, performances from Arcade Fire and M.I.A. and Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, The Creator, the entire idea of an A-list awards show that exists entirely on the internet. This could’ve flipped the entire awards-show… More »

Pusha T – “Trouble On My Mind (Rustie Remix)” (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

Rustie uploaded a new remix today with an interesting story. Apparently there was going to be a Pusha T remix EP titled Lucky T, but it never surfaced. It would’ve had remixes by Machinedrum (who also is in Sepalcure), Lunice, Hudson Mohawk, and more. It’s a good thing that Rustie decided to put this “Trouble… 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 it’s got… 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 »

Watch Tyler, The Creator’s Wolf Movie Trailer

Tyler, The Creator has released a trailer for an upcoming film called Wolf. Based on the minute-long clip, it’s difficult to tell whether it’s based on the album or not, but dude does have a propensity for lupine-naming, so neither would be surprising. I don’t want to spoil it, so just watch below. More »

Tyler, The Creator – “Garbage”

Here’s how Tyler, The Creator, on Twitter, explains why he threw a new non-album track called “Garbage” up online last night: “IDK I WAS BEING CREATIVE ONE NIGHT. I WANTED TO MAKE A BEAT THAT REMINDED ME OF DRUG DEALING OLD FAMLAY CLIPSE TRASHCAN SOUNDING SHIT SO YUH.” This is maybe the best reason anyone… More »

Pepsi Pulls Tyler, The Creator’s Mountain Dew Commercial

Someone at Mountain Dew thought it would be a good idea to let Tyler, The Creator direct some online commercials for them, and amazingly, that decision somehow blew up in their faces. Tyler’s series of ads revolves around a nefarious goat named Felicia who talks in Tyler’s voice and who wreaks annoying havoc on anyone… More »

Watch Earl Sweatshirt’s Coachella Set

We saw Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt at SXSW back in March, and he made his Coachella debut on Friday night sporting tie-dye and a bucket hat. Flying Lotus (aka Captain Murphy) DJ’d, and the set included cameos from Earl’s collaborators Domo Genesis, Vince Staples, and Tyler, The Creator. Now, you can hear Earl shout, “WHAT… More »

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 the… 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 an ElephantMore »
