Odd Future has won the hearts of their rap peers including Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and Diddy, but they also have one unlikely fan in Adele.
“They’re refreshing,” the U.K. songbird tells Rolling Stone. But her fans don’t seem to agree. After posting the controversial video for frontman Tyler, the Creator’s “Yonkers” on her blog, they spoke out. “My fans weren’t happy.”
Adele, whose voice Beyoncé likened to the Almighty, also shared Lil’ Kim’s reaction when she heard the “Rolling in the Deep” singer bust a rap. “She said I was nasty!” exclaimed the thrilled Brit.
Adele’s endorsement of OFWGKTA is the latest feather in the hip-hop collective’s cap. They recently performed with Pharrell at Coachella and Tyler is prepping the release of his solo album Goblin for May 10.
