There’s a new revolution in rap music
and it’s called Odd Future, or as their full
name, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All
(OFWGKTA). The group from Los Angeles
is comprised of 11 rappers and producers
all between the ages of 16 and 23. One
of their members, Earl, is missing, too.
Sounds insane, right? Well, it is.
So far, they have eight albums all for free
download on their website. Their tracks are
the rawest cuts out there, blasting anything
or anyone that is not cool enough to them.
They have this dark humor where
they enjoy causing scenes and pushing
boundaries to freak people out. They
rap about extreme violence, explicit sex,
Satan, not having a father figure, hurting
mainstream pop artists, how they hate
Steve Harvey, etc. You get it.
The group is led by Tyler the Creator.
He has this menacing dark growl. His first
studio-produced album, Goblin, will be out
In one of Tyler’s first songs, “Sarah,”
he raps about murdering a girl he likes
because she won’t go to prom with him. It’s
interesting to get inside OFWKTA’s head
(or at least try to). Kanye West called his video “Yonkers” one of the best in 2011.
Their concerts have been compared to
a punk show filled with blood, spit, stage
diving, crowd surfing and moshing. They
have become labeled as “horrorcore,”
which they find as an insult.
Their music really cannot be put into a
category now; nothing compares to them.
They are extremely dark with secrets
scattered around all of their songs—you
just need to piece it all together.
When listening, you may have no idea
what you are getting yourself into, but
you’ll think, how did you enjoy music
