EDITORS’ NOTES

Since emerging from the Los Angeles sub-underground several years ago, Odd Future has become arguably the most-blogged-about rap group ever, riding an avalanche of online hype and building a dedicated (and obsessive) global fanbase. Ten members deep, Odd Future has been compared to Wu-Tang Clan, but its style is far less thugged-out and way more bugged-out. Led by Tyler, the Creator, the group is all about shattering preconceived notions of traditional hip-hop; its tracks are all over the place stylistically. On Vol. 2, Odd Future effortlessly shifts between straight-up R&B ("White"), hyperactive Dirty South parody ("We Got B*tches," "50"), experimental electro sputtering ("Rella"), and a righteously grimy, throwback posse cut ("Oldie," featuring the return of fan favorite Earl Sweatshirt). Lyrically, the members have toned down the omnipresent illicit talk of their earlier work, but they remain focused on references to pop culture, current events, and Wolf Gang pride. Check out "Sam (Is Dead)," "Real B*tch," and "NY (Ned Flanders)."

About Odd Future

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, a ten-member cult rap collective from L.A., bring to mind a younger, crazier Wu-Tang Clan -- if the Clan had skateboarded and rhymed about drugs and gore instead of chess and kung-fu. Ranging from the ages of 16 to 20, core members Tyler, the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Mike G, Left Brain, and Hodgy Beats started making music along with collaborators Taco, Matt Martians, Domo Genesis, Syd, and Jasper the Dolphin in 2007. The crew’s crude sense of humor and confrontational subject matter earned them a huge underground following, and put them on “top artists to watch” lists. Throughout 2010, Tyler, Earl, Mike G, and MellowHype (Hodgy and Left Brain) released mixtapes individually as free downloads. An official album, The OF Tape, Vol. 2, was released in 2012. ~ Jason Lymangrover
