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


Tyler, The Creator does some simple promotion for ‘Goblin’ on youtube

22 Apr

Here it is, a short video of what I’d guess is going to become a recurring character of his. Thurnis Haley, the older gentleman who just enjoys a nice afternoon at the driving range.

Get Goblin this coming May 10th.

Definitely one of the most buzzed about projects in the past few years of hip-hop, Tyler, The Creator’s major label debut LP is now just around the corner. This is a huge release since this record label, XL Recordings, has worked with some of the world’s most prominent musicians such as Radiohead, The White Stripes, and Gil Scott-Heron just to name a few.

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.

Behind the scenes video of the Odd Future photoshoot with Terry Richardson for Vice Mag

13 Apr

Here’s just a funny montage of the chaos that is OFWGKTA doing a photoshoot. Put the quirky Odd Future crew in a room with the legendary photographer, Terry Richardson, and you’re bound to come up with something interesting.

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

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:

Pharrell remixes a Tron Legacy instrumental and collaborates with Odd Future

1 Apr


Pharrell has added a little personality and finesse to the robotic theme of Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy soundtrack in this new remix entitled “The Game has Changed”. I’ve always thought of Pharrell as a very fickle, fluid rapper, but this track displays his versatility as a producer, as well as some classically nice Pharrell flows. I really recommend this one:


Speaking of Pharrell’s production, it was revealed earlier in March that Pharrell and Chad Hugo’s DJ combo, The Neptunes, would join forces with Odd Future…needless to say I’m excited. Apparently, after having worked with Tyler on two tracks from his upcoming Goblin, album, the rest of Wolf Gang wanted in. Written by Tyler himself, his description of the studio time expresses a lot of respect for Pharrell (read it with a Tyler voice in your head and its way better than it looks):

“so, im at diddys house today, and you know, i ask him about the neptune tracks that didnt make the fucking Press Play or LTTP shit. this nigga played me like 8 fucking beats. and got damn, were they fucking tight. its was some that sounded like hell hath no fury type shit, and then some shit that sound like young girl/the beat goes on then some shit that sound like the Yummy type shit the beats were realllllllly goood. i asked him if they would see the light of day, he said ” yeah, one day”

“yeah, and chad. i asked him a bunch of shit, im trying to get the sooner or later instrumentak and the cassie hide track. i might even get to hear some In Search Of Sessions!!! ( i played chad locked away and he was like WTF? that was suppse to be on insearchof.)” “right now as i type im in the studio with P and Chad. this shit is fucking crazy. we’re making a beat. o my fucking atheist god. my fucking Hero, the nigga that shaped my life ( no homo) is a Fan of me, like, is a legit fan.”

Look for more from both of these groups in the near future.
