Tyler The Creator And Earl Sweatshirt!

What could possibly be hotter than smart black teenage skate rats from good homes in LA, rapping about hyper violence and murder over the dumbest Garageband/Playstation beats since forever? I’ve been trying all morning to think of something and all I can really think of is if I got home and found that somehow Rosario Dawson had broken into my room, tied up the older sister from 8 Simple Rules and was gently fucking her with a stiletto heel on my bed, then saw me and said, ‘oh hi Bob, I brought you a present’… That would be hot.

The kids from the Odd Future are a group of LA weirdos who almost match that sweaty, panting adolescent fantasy in hotness, but they’re real! All I can really gather about them is that they’re a group of school age kids who can wear the shit out of Supreme caps, can skate OK and smoke blunts on YouTube loads. They release stuff for free over their Tumblr (oddfuture.com) and make the greatest rap videos I’ve ever seen. There’s a few of them in the crew but the best ones are Tyler The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, great names for skate (b)rats with weird Doom-ish flows. They make me feel the way I did when I first heard this.

Here’s Tyler, he’s 18:


Here’s Earl, he’s fucking 15!:

Look at the fun looking drink they’re making in this video.

Here’s Earl getting a birthday present at school:

Now go to oddfuture.com and download their records!
