I love TV Music Moments. If Tyler & Hodgy Beats on Jimmy Fallon were Odd Future’s Fear on SNL moment. Then tonight’s Frank Ocean LNWJF appearance after publicly admitting to having been in love with a man is kinda like Elton John and Eminem at the Grammys.
Yessir, All eyes on Frank Ocean tonight as he will be backed by the legendary Roots Crew on National TV. His anticipated album Channel Orange drops July 17th.
Check your local listenings.
Frank Ocean of Odd Future posted the following letter on his tumblr that spoke openly about homosexual feelings he has. This makes him the second openly gay member of Odd Future.
Tyler, the Creator who has been banned from playing festivals in the past for allegedly being a homophobe tweeted in support of Frank taking this step:
It’s too bad Tedd Koppel’s Nightline TV Show wasn’t around to talk with Tyler, the Creator after Odd Future’s historic appearance on Jimmy Fallon, or the debut of the Yonkers video like he did with Madonna or Public Enemy when they dropped controversial videos.
At Midnight est Odd Future will premiere a short film that us directed by Wolf Haley and features himself, Domo Genesis and Lee Spielman of Trash Talk, Manface, Lionel “L-Boy” Boyce, Brick Stowell and Lucas Vercetti, the film will feature an original score composed by Tyler, The Creator.
While, Odd Future doesn’t have the element of surprise on their side anymore; I am eager to watch this.
UPDATED: Below is the video for Sam Is Dead which is a war story built around Tyler’s & Domo’s song off OF VOL 2. The video is not shocking but slick in a manner that speaks with confidence of the staying power of Odd Future.
Watch after the jump.
“Oldie” off Odd Future’s recently released OF Vol. 2 is 10 minutes long with no hook and has 8 emcees . Who else in Hip Hop is doing this and selling out 1000+ venues? Granted moshpits, being funny and promoting anti-social behavior help. Tour dates after the jump.
Odd Future sold-out the Hammerstein Ballroom last night in NYC. But before they did that Odd Future WolfGang Kill Them All also opened up a Pop-Up shop in the L.E.S. In the video above, Vice’s Noisey channel catches up with the Wolfgang at OF’s Pop-Up Shop.
Tyler, the Creator breaks down his feelings of being a clothing designer. Also kinda funny is Tyler’s bff explaining his reaction to being the goofy white kid on the cover of the newest Odd Future Release, The OF TAPE Vol 2 which came out Tuesday.
Opposite day meets Lane Bryant on Odd Future’s Hodgy Beats and Tyler, the Creator new video (NY/Ned Flanders).

Odd Future drops Rella. The first song and video off of OF Tape Vol 2 which will be in stores 3/20. It has Hodgy having fun with virtual reality. Domo acts bad which leads to a meth sniffing centaur Tyler. They are rapping over a bonkers Left Brain beat. So this is basically a Mellowhigh song featuring Tyler, the Creator. National tour begins in Tempe, AZ on 3/9 and will include a pop up store and an exclusive showing of their new TV show, Loiter Squad, which debuts on Adult Swim on 3/25.
You can pre-order Odd Future Vol 2. here.

People tried to speculate there was beef between Odd Future & Wiz after straight edge Tyler, the Creator said ‘fuck Rollin’ Papers, I’m own a rebel flag rape whistle and some moonshine. i’m gonna cook meth and beat my children’ or whatever. Here we are with OF’s Domo and Wiz making music together. So there.
