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 the… 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 an ElephantMore »

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 could conceivably… More »

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 »

Watch Tyler, The Creator’s Mountain Dew Commercial

Tyler, The Creator was tapped by Mountain Dew to create a series of commercials for the soft drink. This first clip features one of his pseudo-alter egos Felicia The Goat, voiced by the rapper, getting hostile with a waitress as Odd Future affiliate Errol Chatman gawks. The spot is very much in Tyler’s oddball vei… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Usually, especially during the weeks where I liked a K-pop video or two, I do my best to explain what, exactly, I enjoy about the videos I list here. This week, though, Scott and I are on our way out the door to Stereogum’s Range Life party, which is about to start. That means I… 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, he… 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 track… 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 »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I never expected to use the word “Lynchian” to describe a 2 Chainz video, but that happened this week. Yet again, we’ve got a complete avalanche of idiosyncratic visions and brainpan-expoding imagery from a whole lot of videos this week, both big-budget and no-budget. And in putting this list together, I had to make some… More »

Trash Talk – “F.E.B.N.” Video (Dir. Tyler, The Creator)

“F.E.B.N.,” the new song from feral Sacramento hardcore band and newly minted Odd Future affiliates Trash Talk, is a minute and a half of screams and juddering riffs, and it somehow still stands as a move toward accessibility for this band. Their buddy Tyler, The Creator directed the song’s new video in stoic black-and-white, but… More »

Tyler, The Creator & Earl Sweatshirt @ Best Buy Theater, NYC 7/26/12

When I entered the Best Buy Theater, I walked past the box office and immediately braced myself as a lanky guy with long shorts, a baggy T-shirt, and a basketball hat trudged toward me with two security guards following attentively. He thrust a leg outward as if stepping over a small fence and smacked a… More »

Watch Trash Talk & Odd Future Perform Together In Brooklyn

To cap off last night’s Odd Future Records bazaar, Trash Talk played a late night set at Williamsburg’s 285 Kent. Left Brain DJed before Trash Talk took the stage, so you know OF made their presence felt early and often; eventually, Tyler took the mic and led a version of “Radical” with Trash Talk a… More »

Tyler, The Creator & Toro Y Moi – “Hey You”

Tyler, The Creator shows a lot of love for Toro Y Moi on Twitter, so you had to figure a collaboration between the two was only a matter of time. Apparently, the track, “Hey You,” got out there before they were finished, but OF is rolling with it. Via their Tumblr:… More »

Frank Ocean – “Golden Girl” (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

Here’s a Channel Orange bonus cut called “Golden Girl,” a breezy, loverlorn number featuring Tyler, The Creator doing a verse in his pitched-down devil voice. “Let’s toast and listen to Michael Bolton,” Tyler says. It’s a physical-release exclusive, something you won’t be able to get at your local Target (more on that below). More »

Frank Ocean Comes Out

In a post on his Tumblr, Frank Ocean, the buttery-genius R&B singer from the Odd Future crew, has essentially come out of the closet. He never says anything as plain as “I’m gay,” but he does open up, telling a story about falling in love with a man:… More »

Odd Future – “Sam (Is Dead)” Video

Tyler, The Creator is not done with his directing career! Tyler did the video for “Sam (Is Dead),” a Tyler/Domo Genesis track from The O.F. Tape Vol. 2, under his Wolf Haley alias, and it’s a trip through Deer Hunter-type war-movie iconography. The seven-minute clip has some extra film-score music from Tyler, and it ha… More »
