Tyler, The Creator Announces US Tour Dates

Odd Future founder Tyler, The Creator has been relatively quiet on the music front since the release of his 2013 solo album. The one-time Goblin told press shortly after the record’s release that he was tired of rap and that he wanted to be known for doing other things as well because he knew he was capable of more. We respected that stance, but part of us always hoped Tyler would come around and want to rap again.

Today, those of us hoping for a return got a taste of what it must feel like when dreams come true after …

UTG PHOTOS: Governors Ball Music Festival

Under The Gun sent photographer, Nick Karp, to Randall’s Island in New York City to photograph the Governors Ball Music Festival.

Much has changed since I attended the first Governors Ball Music Festival, including (thankfully) a new location, more days added to the festival, and there no longer being the gimmick of “No Overlapping Set times.” The market to hold a quality festival in New York City has been in the search since the rise of other domestic festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo, and Governors Ball is the answer. 40,000+ people attended the festival in order to watch notable acts …

UTG PHOTOS: Sasquatch! Music Festival Takes The Gorge Amphitheater By Storm

Under the Gun Review sent photographer, Xander Deccio, to the Sasquatch! Festival in Quincy, WA on the weekend of May 23-25.

To quote my colleague, Morgen Schuler of Seattle Weekly, “Sasquatch! is like summer camp for music lovers. You don’t know what it’s like to experience a weekend at the Gorge in George until you’ve been there.” And this Sasquatch! Was no different. Oh, wait, yeah it was! You see, Sasquatch! was supposed to be two weekends this year. One weekend would be on the normal Memorial Day weekend as it’s been in previous years, and the other would follow …

WATCH: Tyler, the Creator – “I Just Bought a Bugatti (I’m Happy)”

Whether he is trolling literally everyone, getting thrown in jail for ensuing a riot or pissing off some minority, Tyler, the Creator is always getting attention. And it is very obvious that the rapper and his crew, Odd Future, love it.

With the new season of Odd Future’s television show, Loiter Squad, taking off recently, Tyler and the gang have come out with a video for the song that was written for the sketch show, “I Just Bought a Bugatti (I’m Happy).” The song also features a verse from IceJJFish.

Free MP3: Earl Sweatshirt – “Chum” (Left Brain Remix)

Nine months have passed since Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt released his long-awaited debut album, and in that time the young rapper has graced the front page or cover of every notable music magazine from here to Bangkok. The one thing he hasn’t done, however, is announce when fans can expect new material. Today we have a little something special to share, but those wanting truly new stuff will have to wait a bit longer to hear what Earl develops next.

A new remix of Earl’s “Chum” single found its way online this afternoon through Sweatshirt’s official Soundcloud. …

Trash Talk and Flatbush Zombies’ Drone-Shot “97.92″ Music Video Will Blow Your Mind

The way you view the world is about to get wonky. In the new video for their joint track “97.92,″ New York’s Flatbush Zombies and Trash Talk use a remote controlled drone to film some warped fish-eye shots from the air.

The video has quick movements with weird angles that make the singers look blown up, floating, and all in all pretty disproportionate. Get ready for the world to cave in and inverse itself. If that’s not your thing, grab a bag for air sickness and read a statement from the video’s creators, Aplusfilmz and Pier Pictures, to understand how …

Trash Talk Announce New Album ‘No Peace,’ Stream New Song

Trash Talk, everyone’s favorite Odd Future-crossover hardcore band, has announced a new record. The band will be releasing No Peace through Trash Talk Collective/Odd Future Records on May 27. The first single, “Cloudkicker,” can be streamed after the jump.

If the new song is any indication, the band has taken a more focused approach to their sound than that showcased 2012′s 119. The tracklist is notably devoid of Tyler, The Creator and his Odd Future pals, although King Krule and Wiki will feature on a bonus track and the record’s opener and closer were produced by Alchemist. While …

Tyler, The Creator Facing One Year In Prison Following SXSW “Riot”

It’s no secret that Tyler, the Creator is a bit of a wild card. Since bursting on to the scene back in 2009, the Los Angeles native has quickly become a household name throughout the music community, partly due to his rambunctious, sometimes questionable concert antics.

Last week, Tyler got himself into a bit of trouble while performing at SXSW, but today, it seems like his most recent frolics may come at a very steep price. The 23-year-old rapper is currently facing up to one year in prison and a $4,000 fine as a result of his performance in …

Watch Earl Sweatshirt Debut a New Song in New York

Odd Future’s youngest member, Earl Sweatshirt, is currently on his “wearld tour” in support of his debut LP, Doris, out last year. On Thursday in New York City, the rapper performed a new track, showing he’s already looking ahead to work on a new record.

Odd Future Denied Entry To New Zealand Due To “Potential Threat To Public Order”

Back in 2011 when Tyler, The Creator made his TV debut on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, it seemed like the music world was terrified of Odd Future. Think pieces and reviews popped up everywhere, labeling Tyler’s video for “Yonkers” as disturbing or hailing it as genius. Fast forward three years and several albums later, and people still seem to be unapologetically terrified of Tyler and company’s well-documented antics. The hip-hop collective has been denied access to New Zealand and have cancelled their appearance at Rapture Festival this weekend. Immigration New Zealand commented on the situation to 3

Amidst the festivities, which were broadcast, the Odd Future offshoot known as EarlWolf (Tyler, The Creator and Ear Sweatshirt) graced the stage to perform their Grand Theft Auto V contribution, “Garbage.” It was the first – and probably only – performance of the song to happen since the game hit shelves earlier this year.
