I went and saw Odd Future last week in Columbus. The picture above has Odd Future performing with a 12 year-old kid onstage they brought up from the crowd. Now, I cannot say that I would advocate bringing a 12 year-old anywhere but he is pretty symbolic of Odd Future’s success. I do not buy underage people booze at the store when they stop me and and say, “hey will you buy me some booze?” I say “you should find Walmart edited versions of Boots Riley songs.”
But I will say 7th grade for me was Slayer & gangsta rap.
As much as Odd Future’s presence is everywhere via the internet and their Adult Swim show Loiter Squad alot of details aren’t told. BBC 1 Extra did a thorough broadcast program where they have Odd Future and their manager give interesting details and insight.
