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. Even though Doris is stacked with some impressive work, especially considering Earl only just turned 19, this new song packs quite a punch.

Watch the fan-filmed footage below, or try to catch him on one of his upcoming tour dates to hear it live.…

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


Watch Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt Perform “Garbage” From GTA V

It’s the first day back from the weekend, and like every Monday the highlights of the days past are slowly beginning to make the rounds online.

You may not have known it, but between Friday and now the 2013 Video Game Awards took place. 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. You can …

Pharrell Releases 24-Hour Music Video for “Happy”

Pharrell has released an ambitious music video for “Happy,” his contribution to the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. The video plays for 24 hours straight, looping the 4-minute song with different videos of people singing and dancing along to the song.

If you watch it for a while, you’ll notice cameos from Odd Future’s Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, Steve Carell, the Despicable Me 2 Minions, and Magic Johnson. Just like Bob Dylan’s recently released video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” “Happy” is interactive, allowing you to switch around between different scenes and manipulate it.

It’s easy to get …


MellowHigh Stream “Extinguisher,” Launch Album Preorder

What happens when you cross Odd Future‘s stoner deity Domo Genesis with fellow OFWGKTA members MellowHype (Left Brain and Hodgy Beats)? The answer is MellowHigh, the latest rap outfit aiming to conquer iTunes charts in the weeks ahead.

Given the number of collaborations Domo shared with Mellowhype, the birth of Mellowhigh was a long time in the making, but that does not make the resulting effort any less exciting. “Extinguisher,” the latest song to surface off the group’s upcoming mixtape, offers an off-the-cuff sound that harkens back to the early days of the Odd Future collective. All three …


Required Listening: Tyler, the Creator, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt, and Hodgy Beats – “Look”

I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again, but if there is a better way to start the day than with new music then I certainly haven’t found it.

Though the individual members seem to be permanent fixtures of pop culture, Odd Future as a crew has been largely quiet in 2013. Their last collaborative release hit in early 2012, which we think is too damn long, and based on the track that arrived online early this morning it seems safe to say they agree.

Debuting out of the blue well after the sun set, “Look” is a …

There is no confirmation on which dates the other acts will be performing at, but make sure to follow the jump for the dates and locations and see if Earl will be heading to your city. …

Tyler, The Creator Shares Trailer For New Film ‘Wolf’

Odd Future ringleader Tyler, The Creator has released a short trailer for an upcoming film he has created entitled, Wolf.

Released over the last day with little promotion in advance, the trailer for Wolf is about as vague as promotional trailers can be. Tyler is heard asking for a cigarette, which he then lights and proceeds to choke on, before informing his friends they can go ahead and kill someone. The scene cuts to a wide angle shot to reveal Tyler is on the side of an empty stretch of road watching two friends beat someone who is lying …


ALBUM STREAM: Earl Sweatshirt – ‘Doris’

It feels like Doris has been just around the corner forever now but today we finally get to experience Earl Sweatshirt’s debut studio album in full as he’s streaming it on Odd Future’s Tumblr almost a full week ahead of its actual release date.

Featuring 15 tracks with guest spots from many Odd Future affiliates and more, including Mac Miller and RZA, Doris has been one of the most anticipated releases in hip-hop this year. We’ve got tastes of the album in recent month on cuts like “WHOA,” “Sunday,” “Burgundy,” and “Hive,” …
