Check this jam from Tyler, the Creator, from his summer camp mixtape, which consists of what he considers to be summer-y songs. Really cool beat, and calmed down, but still very typical Tyler lyrics. Check it, it’s pretty solid for something that was probably thrown together pretty quickly.
I love the iTunes top ten right now. Adele’s ’21’ is still in the Top spot, dominating, plus ’19’, her debut album, is at number 9. Lonely Island is at number two. I don’t listen to comedy music really, but, they have some funny songs. There’s other albums that deserve that spot, but still they’re probably more talented then a lot of artists who have been in that spot. American Idol sucks but whatever. Christina Perri?
Okay so the top Five has some scattered good albums but the 10-5 is absolutely genius. Every single album is not only good, but very good. It’s pure quality, and that’s rare and amazing. It’s a good day.
Love how the Beastie Boys did a reggae track with Santigold.
One of the best songs off of ‘Goblin’ by far. Helps that Frank Ocean makes a guest appearence.
Who’s not happy Fleetwood Mac is there. It just feels good to have some older, more solid talent up there with all those newer artists.
‘Goblin’ comes out in the US tomorrow, and it’s already out in Europe. Tyler, the Creator and MellowHype both have albums on the way, probably in 2012, despite very recent releases. Earl Sweatshirt is bound to be released from Samoan boarding school within the next couple of years, he’s gotta be 18 very soon right? How long has it been since he released ‘Earl’? Two years? Obviously Odd Future’s mainstream takeover is still in its early stages.
With the ‘Goblin’ release looming, and due to suggestions for an Earl vs. Tyler kinds of poll, I decided to make a poll asking, who is your favorite OF member. And hopefully the next poll won’t be Odd Future-centric. Two in a row is cool, time to move on after this, but for now, drop a vote.
Tyler and his therapist are back. ‘Goblin’ has leaked. It leaked a few days ago I’m pretty sure, but I haven’t gotten around to it until today. The first song seems like an intense presentation of Tyler slowly slipping away from the last bit of his own sanity due to his own anger and personal problems. I’m about to spend the next hour checking out ‘Goblin’. Yes.
I love OFWGKTA and I love Neutral Milk Hotel. I never imagined in a million years I would come across a mashup of Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt’s ‘Assmilk’ and Neutral Milk Hotel’s ‘King of Carrot Flowers, Pt. 1’. When combining two names like that, the end result is bound to turn out weird, ‘King of Assmilk Flowers’, but nevertheless the track is a great and upbeat track that brings a whole new feel to Tyler and Earl’s raps.
Here’s another pretty cool track, Toro y Moi’s remix of Tyler, the Creator’s ‘French’
UPDATE: “his mom sent him to boot camp after hearing his lyrics … some kid from la told me on xbox live i was telling ant about em and hes like you know odd future and i said ya then he asked if i was from la then i said no then hes like wow theyre gettting popular blah blah then i said what happened to earl and he told me cause he used to hang out with earl”
My brother sent me this on Facebook, could this be the answer…
Speaking of OFWGKTA, Earl Sweatshirt. People have been saying that this kid, who’s 17 right now, and released his debut at 16, has more talent then Nas at this age. Tyler, the Creator himself said that Earl’s debut was better then the holy grail, Nas’ debut, Illmatic.
While I don’t think Earl’s debut was that good, still, the kid is a beast. His rhymes are complex, filled to the brim with multiple rhymes within the same lines, and velvety smooth flows.
Tyler is the leader of OFWGTKA and dude is a master of all things marketing his brand, and making people pay attention. From the violent and surreal drug addled music, to the persona who puts forth, and the fact that him and his friends basically fuck around and mess with the journalists in nearly every interview I’ve seen or read, this guy knows how to make people focus on him, and his clique.
You have to respect their intelligence. OFWGTKA is bringing a fresh feel to nearly every aspect of music and music industry. Even if their music isn’t quite on the same level as Nas’ debut, they know exactly how to get where they wanna be, and they’re going there fast.
From Nas comparisons and Kanye call outs, to interviews from nearly everyone and insanely fresh music, OFWGKTA has got it all.
My biggest question is where is Earl? Tyler himself has told interviewers he is dead, but I don’t know how believable that actually is. Wikipedia says he’s at boarding school, more believable. Part of the appeal of Earl, is the mystery of Earl. Most of the world has no idea who he actually is besides a member of Odd Future and Tyler’s brother, they just know him as Earl, a really good young rapper. No one knows where he actually is besides his friends and family. WHERE IS EARL. That’s all I ask. Cause this kid is fucking nasty.
