Tyler, The Creator — more from Thurnis Haley

5 May

I already showed you guys his first installment as Thurnis…well now Tyler has a couple more videos of the beloved ‘golf wang.’

I like these because they coincide with the whole Odd Future formula of making their own stuff (in this case, advertisements and promotions for his new LP,Goblin) very simply but with their own goofy spin.

Take a look at part 2 and 3

Childish Gambino’s take on Odd Future, The Weeknd, and whats to come

5 May

Hip Hop Update held an interview with Renaissance man Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino after a show he held in Los Angeles on April 27th to promote his upcoming IAMDONALD LP.

After getting a snippet of his stirring, energetic performance style, Gambino goes on to discuss a rap group at a similar stage in their musical development as himself, OFWGKTA, and up-and-coming R&B soloist The Weeknd, among other things. Despite having just finished a show, Gambino still conducts himself with the same cheer and wit that is reflected in his music. Check it out:

New video for Frank Ocean’s “Songs For Women”

22 Apr

The R&B mastermind of Odd Future now has a stylish new video to go along with arguably his most popular song to date.

Note that this video is fan-made, so it’s not officially Frank’s video, but at least it’s something with a fitting mood for the song.

Earl Sweatshirt — found! [UPDATED, Tyler’s input]

14 Apr

[According to Tyler, The Creator’s twitter, this is not accurate information. He said:

“Sick As Fuck, But I Just Came On This To Say That Complex Shit Is False Info. Sucks Waking Up To Some Shit Like That…Fuck Complex.”

This could be Tyler trying to stir up drama due to his dislike of Complex (about a month or so ago, Complex wrote a story on a tweet Tyler made regarding his disappointment in the Pusha T mixtape, and he was not too happy), but I guess Tyler would know better than anyone else where his close friend is.

So the enigmatic Earl lives on in mystery. (read the article below to see what kinds of info Complex put out earlier this morning).]

This is big news for any fans of the Odd Future crew. If you’ve heard any of their songs, seen any of their videos, read any of their twitter accounts (etc), then you know that Earl Sweatshirt is missing. The lack of details however kept fans in the dark and perpetuated rumors and guessing (he’s dead, he’s in prison, he’s across the country, and so on).

Well, just a few hours ago, Complex announced that they have found him! If you look at the picture above, it shows Earl with the group of boys that all go to Coral Reef Academy in Samoa (this place). It’s a place for teenagers who are headed down a dangerous path, and it is there to set them straight. So this corrective academy is where Earl has been for the past many months.

Well at least we now have some sort of conclusion to this loose end…now we just need to get him back here to record some more records.

Also here’s a pic taken by Tyler, The Creator and put up on his twitter of the actual article.

Just for fun, here’s one of my favorite Frank Ocean tracks (this one is off of Nostalgia, Ultra)

Unreleased track by Earl Sweatshirt AKA Sly Tendencies

9 Apr

Wherever this mysterious 17 year-old rap prodigy is, he should be patting himself on the back. Now referred to as Earl Sweatshirt, “Dat Ass” was produced when this infamous, dicey lyricist was still the independent skater/rapper known as Sly Tendencies, and Wolf Gang meant nothing to him.

In the recent explosion of OFWGKTA, Earl’s strange absence from the group, combined with his raw talent as a rapper and musician as a whole have labeled him as the most intriguing rap enigma to come from Odd Future in my opinion. He has a unique ability to combine his rebellious, bad-egg personality with pure craft and wit in his words. This track features Earl spitting over a funky sitar, and, like his public image, embodies the phrase “short and sweet.” Check it:
