Get On The Bandwagon Now

Tyler, The Creator is known for his work as part of OFWGKTA aka Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All aka Odd Future. Tyler, The Creator has estimated that his sophomore solo album Goblin, being published through a deal with label XL Recordings, might be released in April. This is a random comment from the youtube clip that must be shared.

“I’m freakin speechless. I’m a 50 year old negro man and this shit is beautiful. Damn man, this reminds me of the first time I heard parliaments mothership connection. Makes me want to go out and get a bag of weed and listen to every verse over and over and over and over again and again. Awesome young man, just freakin awesome.”

You don't know shit!

I’m not sure how to feel about Tyler, The Creator (and, by extension Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), apart from the fact that I really like the comma in his name. Then again, I’m probably not meant to be able to. From ‘Yonkers’ first line, “I’m a fucking walking paradox. No I’m not/Threesomes with a fucking triceratops” it becomes clear this isn’t your run of the mill hip-hop fare. Equally chanelling the calculatedly insane violence of early Eminem and the surreality of Captain Beefheart, Tyler’s lyrics are immediately recognisable and immediately different from what we’ve become accustomed to from this particular music scene recently by warrant of balancing the essentially morally reprehensible and the oddly contemplative (“Fuck the fame and all the hype G/I just wanna know if my father would ever like me“). It’s no coincedence then that the wonderfully sparse production puts all the focus on Tyler’s deep, relentless vocals, even cutting out completely at the point where he goes truly over the top, before continuing, just as calm as he suddenly becomes. This is measured, intelligent hip-hop made by a seemingly unhinged man. It could be the (odd) future, it could just be a postmodern prank, it could even be an odd flash in the pan for a stagnant scene. Whatever it is, I think I like it (even if he is “stabbing any blogging faggot hipster with a Pitchfork“).

I've known Petunia for many years and I can assure you he's schooled me on Hip-Hop many times
