Late last year I sat down with Tyler, the Creator for a feature that ran in the Feb/March issue of Malibu Mag. Just a few weeks after the Odd Future Carnival, we met on his lunch break during shooting for the third season of “Loiter Squad.” I’d been told I would have an hour, but […]
Jonah Bromwich is the write game Telemachus. Tyler the Creator’s new video is wildly entertaining in the style of the old Eminem spots for songs like “Without Me,” and “Real Slim Shady.”   It would be worth posting simply for that reason: to see Tyler poking fun at himself, running through a rainbow montage of absurd […]
Son Raw isn’t sure how he feels about this one. Despite Kanye’s best attempts, Doris will probably go down as the year’s most contrarian rap album. Those expectations you have for Earl Sweatshirt, rap’s golden child anointed in absentia? Get rid of them – he wants nothing to do with this shit. No crowns, no […]
Son Raw is bringing back Eek-a-Mouse Good rap music, no more no less from the Early Man and friends, complete with a video with far more loitering than anything on Loiter Squad. I know the music press never really got over Tyler punking them with Goblin, but No Idols, Channel Orange, Wolf and now Doris […]
I like everything about this. The old man goofball glee that Letterman gets from saying “Earl Sweatshirt.” The Temptations back-up dancing provided by Tyler and Earl during Domo’s verse. Tyler’s air guitar solo. The St. Louis Cardinal’s Starter jacket. Earl’s return to become everything rap fans had hoped. Tyler’s purposefully corny tucked in shirt and […]
After the fiasco that is Wale, Deen had to throw his allegiance to some other rapper of Nigerian descent. Some of the more perceptive among you may have noticed that I don’t sleep much. I spend a lotta late hours deciding what pron to fap to and listening to music like some sorta creep. The […]

Colin Small is the Google Boss. The weirdest thing about internet shitstorms is that we all know they’re shitstorms and yet we actively involve ourselves, either as righteous participants or entranced observers. No matter how much we want to forget about the “Harlem Shake” meme or the whiney backlash of two weeks ago, we don’t […]
In which Odd Future reaches that bizarre nexus where the Internet is completely over them but they can rack up a quarter million YouTube hits before you can say “Fookie Bookie.” Shades of Eminem’s “Real Slim Shady” in the pro wrestler/superheroish conceit and rapid-fire rappity raps. The question raised: Are we getting to the point […]
“Was mobbin deep as 96 Havoc and Prodigy did/We were the pottymouth posse crash the party and dip/With all belongings then toss em out to the audience/Nothing was fucking awesome, trying to make it from the bottom/His sins feeling as hard as Vince Carter’s knee cartilage is/Supreme garment and weed gardeners garnishing spliffs/With Keef particles […]
Mellowhype launch decoys September 14, 2012
Son Raw’s teeth grind like a skater do Could Odd Future make a comeback in the second half? After a mediocre compilation album complete with the worst videos since D12 and The Internet’s soporific Chillwave reheat, the once shocking group seemed in danger of becoming a permanent asterix in rap – the kind of entity […]
