Odd Future: ‘We’re Doing Something That No One’s Ever Done Before’

Kanye West may have branded the visuals for Tyler, the Creator’s “Yonkers” as the best video of 2011, but the rapper’s group Odd Future has already been steady on the rise. The Cali collective, also known as OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), has burned up the Internet with do-it-yourself releases touting aggressive and uncompromising lyrics over dank beats.

The 10-member crew most recently made its television debut when Tyler and Hodgy performed “Sandwitches” on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” speaking with MTV News about how they want to throw the hip-hop curve.

“Rap is really just too conventional. It’s like everybody does the same thing, uses the same styles,” explains Domo. “No one ever pushes the box, and then when you get people that do push the line too far, everybody at first is like, ‘What the fuck is this?’ and then it’s like, ‘This shit is tight.’ It’s new, so there’s nothing really bad you can say about it because we’re doing something that no one’s ever done before.”

Get acquainted with the eccentric outfit and watch the video for “Yonkers” below.

    ILLUMINATI DOES EXIST. THEY DON’T USE THE NAME PUBLICLY ANY, BUT THE BAVSRIAN ORDER OF THE ILLUMINATI WAS FOUNDED IN 1776 BY ADAM WEISHAUPT AT THE BEHEST OF THE NEWLY FORMED HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD. THE OTHSCHILE FAMILY HAS SINCE INSERTED THEIR CENTRAL BANKS IN ALMOST EVERY COUNTRY AROUND THEY WORLD EXCEPT SWITZERLAND AND A SELECT FEW OTHERS. THEY RUN THE FEDERAL RESERVE, BILDERBERG, WALL STREET, MADISON AVENUE, HOLLYWOOD, MAINSTREAM MEDIA, THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, ETC…

    THIS IS NOT A JOKE. WATCH “JAY-Z DECEPTION” IN FULL ON YOUTUBE TO START.

    [Reply]

    Halso Reply:

    @roro, First off, I highly doubt that all of the groups lyrics are meant to be taken literally. Like a lotta rappers these days they’re a pretty ironic bunch. Second, rap artists take random shots at people all the time, regardless of genre. Lastly, b.o.b ain’t shit. He’s really not that successful (selling 84,000 copies of your debut album first week is hardly anything to get all giddy about) and only reason he is were he is now is because of said guest appearances.

    The comments on this site really give me no hope for the future. “He’s an asshole” “He believes in the devil, I don’t like him”. Stop bitching. This isn’t your regular song you listen to when your drunk with your girlfriends and their bleedy tampons. This is that raw, uncut, unfiltered, unadulterated hip hop shit. If you don’t like it, turn your radio on and shut the fuck up because hip hop aint for you.

    OK a few things,OFWGKTM is dope,tyler is dope and earl is the best of them.hodgy is wack and the others sound alot like everyone else,domo who is quoted saying :they are doing something noone else has ever done” is pretty garbage.all and all they are dope however.
    Hiphop has plenty of room for these ids and too be honest they are the freshest thing to come out of hiphop in a long long time.
    second,thier is no illuminati it has nothing to do with the music industry,stop letting rich white men like glenn beck make you look stupid.

    Im a christian and i understand what theyre doing. Their trying to break the mold and draw a reaction from the people. Which theyre are succeeding in doing. However i dont like how theyre doing it. I like the music itself and their style of rap. I just dont appreciate some of their lyrics and the symbols they put all over the place. But they dont care because they want to offend people. Sooo i may continue to listen to earl but as far as wolf haley i think its tome to stop. Still an excellent producer. Not diggin the lyrics.

    This is disgustng. They put together dope beats and integrate satanic symbols and verses to infect the minds of the young. I’m not falling for this shit anymore. How can they say they’re “athiests” when they clearly worship the devil? Upside down crosses, 666, eating the beatle and vomitting, bloody nose, his hand says kill, talking about murdering other artists, and committing suicide!? And its not just him, its other artists too who are just more subtle. Don’t fall for the hype. Peace and Love.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. In other words, if these people openly display satanic symbols, imagery, and promote suicide, rape, murder, etc, then they themselves internally approve of all of those things. Think about it. If you don’t approve of Satanic imagery, would you tattoo yourself with it and sing about it? Don’t be fooled guys. The truth is staring at you in the face.

  44. HisChildren

    Wow this just amazes me how crazy you people are(no offense). The bible clearly states that Jesus said “whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.” How can he not be against Jesus?? He openly denies Jesus, the only difference is that he doesn’t care about being denied at heavens gate because he doesnt want to go to heaven. We as children of god shall not bash his name though,, by that we are only committing sin as well. The Bible says love thy neighbor. We might not love the thing he do nor say but down talking him is no better. If he really is the “devil” then we shall pray that god has mercy on his soul. I myself believes that he is a satanist or might be satan him self in disguise but i will not wish to do harm upon him because my father, will rise against him but if they aren’t, i wish that they would stop because they’re giving the youth bad ideas. Music is a universal language, its the way ton get anything across if you wanted to. All I Have to say is Pray for this young man because he music is going to make this world so chaotic. The world is coming to an end as we know it.

    It’s not fair to call them uneducated. Partly because most of the artists we have listen to this day have dropped out of college or university to produce music we all listen to. They are making money if we like it or not. The fact that no one can put a finger on their genre is what makes them so unique. Even if they do not blow up to the magnitude that kanye or jay-z or lil wayne, or anyone for that matter. In my opinion just enjoy the music for how ever long they last.
