Odd Future was on Jimmy Fallon last week. Ill performance. Im sure somebody shit themselves in the studio while watching them.

These kids (all under 21) are bringing a much needed violent energy to a younger hiphop audience.  Murdery, rapey, dark and angry.  Its nothing that hasnt been done before, but theyre doing it their way.  No pansy, soft core shit here. To me, Odd Future is what Nirvana was to hair metal.  All of this spandex jeans and spaceboots pussy shit has got to fucking stop.  You look like you got jizzed on in a skittle orgy.  Youre as tough as spaghetti.
Wolf Gang is here.

Whats crazy is that theyre doing it 1000% on their own.  Independent as fuuuuuuuuck!
Crazy that after that performance and sold out shows,  theyre still trekking on a bus.
How did Tyler feel about the bus bullshit?
“…I’d rather do a fuckin song with Drake” – Tyler


Combat Jack from The Source has been supporting them heavily for months.
*I first heard about them on his radio show*
I asked him why he supported them so much and here’s what he had to say…

Tyler the Creator – “Yonkers”

over 1 MILLION VIEWS in less than 2 weeks!?!?!!!
thats fucking unheard of!

James Yancey/JayDee was an incredible musician/artist/genius.  I feel like I took his music for granted,  I always knew he was great but it felt like maybe it never sunk in.  I do remember knowing that I could listen to his tracks on loop forever and not get tired of it.  Take a look at his catalog and I guarantee you’ll find a bunch of songs that you didnt know he produced, and are your favorite.
This documentary is really moving, it definitely gets a bit emotional.  Im infinitely grateful for being a part of this culture.  Many important people have literally given their lives to hip hop and their efforts need to be respected.  Its wack that so many people like Dilla because its “cool”.
Respect the culture. Real recognize real.
