Tyler Is Going to Have A Bright Odd Future
I just caught up with the Tyler The Creator and Hodgy Beats performance (after the jump) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon... I gotta say that I'm mega proud of these dudes. As sick or demented as you think they are, the music is good and they do their own work which is even better. This brings me back to when I first saw Tyler post on the HypeBeast Forums telling us to DL the first OF tape and to go fuck ourselves while calling everyone whatever derogatory name he can think of. He got a groups attention (including mine) in that forum and we saw Odd Future pretty much grow and make dope Hip-Hop while everyone just looked and shook their heads at them. I wonder what made people even care about them now when they are still making the same type of music they were a couple of years ago??
It's great that they have a cult of fans and all this media press, I just think some people are leeching onto them now and are the same people that dismissed them before. As of maybe half a year now there has been an incredible amount of attention on them out of nowhere which is surprising, it also makes me skeptical on who's behind most of it and why or when did the higher ups in music/media decided to throw em a bone. Is it really time to reveal this type of music to the popular media? I dunno... they are also the same one's that buy Drake and Lil Wayne, this is on a totally different level. I for one am totally supportive of Tyler and his Odd Future gang, just hope the world is finally ready for their vision.
Odd Future stay OFWGKTA, never mind these scenesters and "cool" hipsters by your side they eventually fall off anyways.
