The Odd Future is Now

www.enliten.me

After electrifying Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, the future is officially here:

For those unfamiliar, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA) is a Los Angeles based hip-hop collective headlined by Tyler the Creator – but they’re better described as a legitimate movement in the music industry. Odd Future’s 11-man team of independent artists reminds me of the also Cali-based group¬†Living Legends last decade.¬†But Odd Future’s musical style is no comparison; this article describes their sound the best:

They curse, they shout and they’re definitely NSFW. But those who can stomach the sometimes-repellent, but always captivating, lyrics will find one of the most daring, in-your-face, and unpredictable musical acts to come along in a long time.

With the current state of the genre in question, Odd Future’s authentic, not-watered-down approach is eye-opening and much appreciated. True fans of rap have become disenchanted with overproduced, overplayed pop – Odd Future is a breath of fresh air and a peak at the ‘odd future’ of the game.

Here’s a sample of music videos:

I would also like to highlight Tyler’s verse from “Seven” because it embodies OFWGKTA in multiple ways and is just dope – one of my favorite tracks:

I guess I gotta be a fuckin’ hand-me-down rapper

From Los Angee area anytime I’m fuckin’ landing

Fuck 2DopeBoyz and NahRight, shout out to Hype Track

Them motherfuckers could never get rid of me

Guess I gotta do a fucking song with Dom Kennedy

Get these fuckin’ hip hop bloggers to start feelin’ me

Because I’m 17, compose my own beats

Lyrically I’m dope enough to ass-fuck the dude who made nicotine

Maybe I should buy some Hundreds, wear some fuckin’ skinny jeans

And follow in your footsteps like a motherfuckin’ millipede

Centipede, make songs about Gucci and cigaweed

Jerk with my friends like it’s some motherfuckin’ little league

No I ain’t no fucking hipster, mister

No I’m not no fucking Kid Cudi, all my fucking fans love me

Collaboration hits for fans screaming fuck buddies, yo, yo

Free Earl!
