Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats of Odd Future may have changed the game last night.
Tyler rocked an inverted cross on a ski mask, while screaming his lyrics at a female mental patient, Fallon, some ginger, and a lame from Big Momma’s House.
All this was backed by the Roots with Mos Def lurking in the background yelling “swag”.
Is this the Swag generation’s Fear on SNL?
Time will tell.
In the least they are making everyone else in rap look timid like cowards. My guess is the one-off deal with XL is just the start.
According to the LA Times, L.A. rap malcontents, Odd Future are currently in the middle of label bidding wars. So what’s a better way to raise the stakes then play some key markets, hop on National TV with the Roots, and rock Coachella?
Who is Odd Future?
High School kids that can actually skate, and can actually rap who are also very anti-social towards the current hypebeast blog rapper.
Throw a little Wu, shock value and Dada in with the Cool Kids to make them not Jurassic 5. Or throw a lot Sean Price in with Das Racist. Or listen to rap and skateboard and don’t be a fucking poser. Insert the real title for License to Ill instead of poser. Or don’t.
That description too vague?
