What goes together better than old British folks and Odd Future? Well it look’s like just about everything. OF just wrapped up their international tour yesterday, but first took time to sit down with the Brits over at BBC’s Newsnight for a quick look into their stay in London. The special focuses primarily on their pop up shop strategy, with a slew of poor jokes peppered in (“are there any washing instructions in here,” anyone?).
It’s not terribly difficult to pick up BBC’s stance on the collective, as they make an effort to include interviews with some seemingly pretty unintelligent kids waiting to get into the pop up shop. In some regards, the OF members only help contribute to this image BBC is trying to portray, as Left Brain’s dumb ass goes as far as saying on camera that they don’t pay taxes on the merchandise they sell (which Clancy so happily has to clear up after that).
A definite highlight from the interview comes at the 3:25 mark when Tyler is asked, “what about your lyrics, what are you saying in your lyrics?” and replies so eloquently with, “nothing, shit to piss old white people off like you.” I’ve seen a fair share of Tyler interviews, and I’ve realized that if there is one thing he hates, its when reporters ask the same old interview questions; seeing that a conservative 9 out of every 10 interviewers ask him to speak on his lyrics, which he has explained countless times, I can understand the frustration. Throwing out an answer like that on BBC is still hilarious though.
Oh and 100 pounds for one of those OF tie dye shirts? Hellll nawwww
What’s good errrrybody, in case you forgot, today marked the drop of The OF Tape, Vol 2. and as a quick little promo, the OF group threw together a video for their 10 minute posse cut from the album, “Oldie.” To begin with, I’m a sucker for posse cuts; no hook, no chorus, just everyone getting in their two cents. Adding a video to it is dope. Things like this are what keep me interested in OF, I don’t understand how people can watch things like this and not be a fan. They’re just a bunch of kids doing whatever they want and having fun in the process…. if that’s not what you strive for as a college kid, I guess you’re not like me.
The Odd Future crew has came a ways since releasing free tapes, so this one is going to cost you 15 bills, but it’s 18 tracks and you get a bit of everything as everyone from Tyler to Earl to Syd’s The Internet to Frankie Ocean shows up. I spent the money and if you want to also hit the link…………………………… here. Golf Wang.
The good people at Odd Future Talk decided to put out the third volume of the Unreleased OFWGKTA tapes and this one includes a few gems, including 3 tracks from Earl Sweatshirt from back in the day when we was known as Sly (if you didn’t already know that, you need to step up for OF knowledge). There’s also new material from Tyler, Hodgy, Syd, Domo, Left Brain and Mike G among others. Definitely going to want to add this to your library if you mess with OF like I do.

Mellowhype released the video for their track “64″ just about 20 minutes ago. Mellowhype is the duo consisting of two Odd Future members, Hodgy Beats and Left Brain, in case you weren’t aware. In typical OFWGKTA style, this video is made to offend some people and shock more of them. Snakes, white out contacts (the Hopsin look, if you will), rolling joints out of bible papers, and that chick from the Grudge are all used to achieve the “shock effect” for this one. It makes for an interesting video and definitely worth a watch, so be sure to hit play and see what you think.
