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:
MP3: Cocaine (Little Dragon Kåkejn remix)
The Internet’s song Cocaine got remixed by Sweden’s Little Dragon. The Internet aka Syd The Kyd & Matt Martians will release their debut album Purple Naked Ladies on Odd Future Records digitally on December 20th. The physical version featuring 3 bonus tracks and exclusive art and packaging will be in stores Jan 17th. Tracklisting after the jump as well as an unrelated Tyler, Pusha-T, Liva Don, Hodgy Beats song.
The new issue of Spin Magazine’s cover story is the New Underground in Hip Hop. Above is a humorous diagram that at some parts is a little off. I don’t think Jay Electronica sold his soul or that Nas is out of touch, but whatever, it’s still something to look at and think about.
In an article on Odd Future in the same issue, Tyler,the Creator says his next album will be out in May, and will be rape-humor free.
Masta Ace- Slaughtahouse
Last Friday, Odd Future Records “signed” a new artist Young N*gga. It seems like it might be Tyler, the Creator having fun. Listen for yourself..
It reminded me of Masta Ace’s song Slaughterhouse(video posted above) which is probably the reason the Westside Connection started. I don’t think Tyler detests rappers like Young N*gga quite like Masta Ace did Early 90’s CB4 types.
I think he is in between parody, and role playing on that one.
After the jump some more joke raps.

MP3:Tyler The Creator Ft. Domo Genesis – Odd & Twisted (Got It Twisted Freestyle)
Odd Future’s Domo & Tyler rip Mobb Deep’s classic Got It Twisted beat while Peter Rosenberg makes jokes in a low voice.
MP3:The Game feat Tyler, the Creator + Lil Wayne -Martians vs. Goblins
Has Game out trolled Lil B the Based God ? I love the Game’s music. However, between his meta-reference rhyme content, Mike Tyson-esque face tattoo and constant love poems to Dr. Dre he is one of the most absurd, grotesque individuals in Hip Hop.
Game’s newest adventure has him dissing Lil B the Based God in an interview with VLAD TV and on this collab with Tyler, the Creator and Lil Wayne, “Martians vs. Goblins”.
Game also lies about having sex with Lebron James mom and Erykah Badu on “Martian vs. Goblins”.
This is probably one of the funniest rap songs made this week. Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator clowns Game’s name-dropping after slandering Bruno Mars.
Game then references Nas’s “Eminem murdered you on your own shit” line from the Jay-z diss “Ether” but points it at himself.
So much fun for rap nerds on this song is which is on Game’s new album The R.E.D. Album which comes out next Tuesday.
MP3: Kathleen Hanna vs Tyler The Creator – Cock Out
Longtime Hip Hop internet mainstay John Book mixed vocal samples of Riot Grrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna and Tyler the Creator in an effort to as, Book said on twitter , ” a way to mix one’s perspective of shock value with another, to show commonality.”
Book was inspired to create this mp3 after reading Kathleen Hanna’s opinion of OF on Pitchfork. Book posted this on his website earlier today.

Above is a new Frank Ocean video for “Acura Intergurl”. It debuted yesterday on Frank Ocean’s tumblr and Onsmash were gully enough to put it on vimeo. Def Jam will package new material along with tracks from nostalgia, ULTRA for release this summer that you can have sex to. You cannot have sex to “Goblin”.
Frank Ocean did a few surprise appearances on some East Coast dates with Tyler, the Creator cause he is on that “She” song on “Goblin” where dude gets stabbed slashed for a fucking a ninja’s lady, and Tyler sounds more like a crushing skater kid than a poser rapist. Shit’s tight. Good summer jam, And whenever you might think Tyler is super-simpin’ he adds a “cunt” addlib for strength of humor’s nuance.
Tyler, The Creator had the number 5 album in country last week. Kvlt marketing at it best. Leave the attempts for hit radio songs to the R+B crooners, Ocean, and Syd.
Chances are good Ocean will pop-up on more OFWGKTA shows from time to time.
Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All will be performing at Primavera Sound in Spain this weekend 5/28 and will be in Australia for Vivid Live Festival at the Sydney Opera House alongside The Avalanches, The Cure, Spiritualized, and more. Look out for dates on the west coast and Chicago for the Pitchfork Music Festival this summer.
Tyler and Domo were also spotted hanging out at a Smith Westerns/Yeasayer show in L.A, last night.
OFWGKTA’s Tyler goofballing as a golf-pro to promote Tyler’s upcoming album Goblin.
