2012 SXSW Recap: Real Rap Vacation

Tired as fuck, I walked out of the “Killer Mike R.A.P. Music Showcase“ Wednesday. After getting outside, I wondered why DJ Detox was bullshitting and not outside.  I walked back inside and he was making small talk with the GZA.

When I found the GZA and Detox, a small crowd had also found the GZA.

Odd Future’s MellowHype Sets July 12th Release on Fat Possum Records

Odd Future’s HodgyBeats & Left Brain aka MellowHype and Fat Possum Records are dropping the retail version of Blackenedwhite on July 12th.

The music that was originally released on OFWGKTA’s tumbler in late 2010 has been remastered, reworked. Songs have been added. Videos have been made. And look at the awesome cover.

MellowHype was on National television with Bass Drum of Death a few months ago.

And of course Hodgy is the kid on Sandwitches that says the evilest shit. Again look at that cover. Makes me want to get a fireplace and a red robe. I want a lady to crotchet that cover to hang over my fireplace and apply oils to my stomach. I might shave my head to look like Anton Levay or Boyd Rice.

I will prolly just cop it on wax and cross my legs while sipping tea in reality.

This will be the last Odd Future’s release on an imprint that isn’t Odd Future Records.

If you live in on the West Coast:

OFWGKTA’s MellowHype perform “64″ on Fuel TV’s show the Daily Habit. They are backed by Mississipi’s Bass Drum of Death. More heady and psychedelic than other Odd Future performances.

Bass Drum of Death will back Odd Future’s MellowHype tonight on Fuel TV at 11pm EST/10pm CST. This above video is of Bass Drum of Death’s performance on the same show last night. Bass Drum of Death is dropping GB City on Fat Possum Records, April 12th. They are Fat Possum’s first two-piece since the Black Keys.

Bass Drum of Death Tour Dates after the jump

MellowHype is Hodgy Beats and Left Brain and on Fat Possum as well. So I guess they would also be Fat Possum’s first two-piece since the Black Keys.

You prolly remember Hodgy from that infamous OFWGKTA Jimmy Fallon performance. MellowHype will be performing “64″ from BlackenedWhite, which will be remastered, remixed, and feature bonus material that wasn’t on the the original version released on Halloween 2010. Continue reading
