Odd Future’s 10 Steps to Selling Out

Tyler, the Creator

Want to become a sell-out? Just ask Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator. The group’s eccentric frontman told Paper magazine his tips on how to properly capitalize on one’s musical success by selling out, outlining the 10 steps to shredding all credibility. While his suggestions may seem like self-sabotage, there’s an art to making sure you make all the wrong decisions.

See how Tyler recommends flushing your hard work down the drain, and it doesn’t include signing a major label deal with Bad Boy or Roc Nation.

1. Buy a mink made out of an ostrich’s ass.
2. Do a song with some artist who sounds stupid.
3. Get a photo with Justin Bieber wearing a green jacket.
4. Get some ice gold. It has to be gold.
5. Have a sex tape with a Disney star.
6. Make a gospel album.
7. Do a commercial for fucking Kia.
8. Get a fucked up haircut like will.i.am.
9. Make shit that sounds different from your first album.
10. Make a dance record with Lil’ Zane.

    @Lolsmileyface, HOW about these God believing rappers talking about sexing women, killing people, violence, and blink-blink? STFU

    ughreally Reply:

    @Devin,

    Saying they believe in God doesn’t mean they do and believing and following God are not aligned. Speaking of metaphorically getting rid of someone or being violent on paper is not worse then disrespecting God.

    Even if you’re agnostic or atheist it’s tactful to understand that to some God is everything, above anything and person on earth. Odd Future, specifically Tyler disgusts me with his whole act. It’s an act to be different and out there and rebellious. Then he talks about crying because Kanye tweeted him.

    He’s not really that amazing. Frank Ocean is seriously talented though.

    @ughreally, Just because one believes in a god does not equal a good person. I do not care about someone personal beliefs, THEIR ACTION WILL REVEAL THE TRUTH

    @me, Don’t pay them any mind. Tyler and his type of act is appealing to ppl who try hard to be a nonconformist and “different,” like “me,” when in actually, you don’t try hard or try at all to be different. You just be it.

    me Reply:

    @Face, ^^^Bingo, Frank Ocean is the only one with any talent in the bunch.

    [Reply]

    SWEETS Reply:

    The fact that you guys know of frank ocean is a sign from GOD to make me not tall you about yourselves so ill leave everything at what it is. Hopefully you two bafoons learn how to be openminded individuals and respect artistic genius & allow people to have their own opinion, because right now you look like two leaches living off of my opinion. (BURNING YOU OFF) hahahahaha!

    if you dont like tylers music or him then you have no taste in music and are afraid of the truth.

    [Reply]

  12. Um.Well.Sure.

    Talk about “paying homage” lmao. These dudes are stepping on alot of toes and I say “these dudes” because your leader represents you as a whole so if he’s talking reckless like this the whole groups going to feel it. Whoever signs them to they’re label is going to need a great damage control team…

    this guys sound dumb, dont come into the game all negative. the few things ive heard and read about odd future is that they keep dissing people and talking nonsense, nothings about their music. i personally think their music is different and kinda cool, they should chill and let their songs speak for themselves.

  15. stephenc

    this guy doesn’t even deserve an article on this site… The guy calls himself “Tyler the Creator”. What the hell has he created? I haven’t heard a single song from this guy…

    until then he should stop criticizing artists who’ve actually made it.

    fail

    This music is doing exactly what it was intended to do! It’s pissing whiney little pussies like you faggot bloggers off… Odd Future was a fucking success whether you dipshits wanna believe it or not. OFWGKTA.

    If Mos Def is backing it up, he obviously sees raw talent.

    It’s a lot of hate in hear. Guess that’s good for Odd Future. You better listen to “Yonkers” and “Bastard”, cause they got talent. There’s no stoppin this train. Yeah they may say some awful shyt, but this is the most original music out right now. People always hate on something different. If you don’t like it, don’t pay it any attention. Why even post a negative comment? Pussies!!!

    *Fail* a mink is an actual animal (kind of small and rodent-like). It is literally impossible to buy a ‘mink made from an ostrich’s ass’.
    Tyler should have thought this one through just a bit, not because of the risk of offending people, but because of the risk of sounding foolish :/

    Why are u ppl so fuckin’ opinionated these days!? Nobody really gives a fuck what you think is hot or not, besides, half of you bitches are so damn radio and t.v. conditioned it’s pathetic! What pisses me off about you simp ass, simple minded “RAP” fans is that u won’t yank ur heads out’cha asses for a second to see and hear that not every group wants to be New Money, Waka Flaka Lame, Weebie, or Boosie! Some ppl wanna be who and what THEY are! Make a fuckin’ mix tape, get a couple thousand hits on YouTube, sell out a show in less than 48 hrs. over seas and then talk shit you fairy ass rap fans! Go look in a mirror and shoot the first person u see!

    Fail from the moment of conception. Try establishing yourself before trash-talking and then you’ll have ground to stand on. They’ll be selling out like all the rest should they get enough fame. TRUST. It’s funny how I can accept atheists’ right to freedom of choice not to believe, but they don’t give me the same respect. Given that, I really don’t want to hear what they have to say, nor do I care. They’re far more close-minded than they accuse others of being and they don’t even see the irony.

    I am 34 years old. I have been listening to and making hiphop for 25+ years. OFWGKTA are fantastic. I remember the early 90s when people like Dre/Snoop and Wu-Tang saved hiphop from the ridiculous ultra-commercial path it was on. Now, 20 years later some kids from California are doing the same thing. Watching Gucci Mane talj about how rich he is, and listening to the same ridiculous, recycled beats is embarrassing. Kids like Tyler are important because the for HipHop to take a look at themselves. How many ridiculous Pitbull verses do I need to hear? How many awful songs about jewellery do I need to hear? Yeah, the kid is cocky as hell but at least he doesn’t use autotune. In their words, I’d rather stand out than fit in.
