Odd Future Announce 1st National Tour + Tyler, The Creator VMA Nominations
There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said about Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. The press either love them or love to hate them and keep an eye on their movement as the group continues to surprise the public at every turn along the way.
Nearly a dozen members deep, the Los Angeles collective has been releasing music, videos, art, and has established a presence over the past couple years that most charting artists will never fulfill in their entire careers. Everyone from Beyonce to Jay Z to Pharrell have been supportive or even collaborated with members of the group and shared their praise. Tyler, The Creator was recently featured on a single / video with his rap favorite “Pusha T” while the group’s singing member “Frank Ocean” has contributed to the new Beyonce album and Kanye West / Jay Z’s “Watch The Throne” album. The rap / production duo of Hodgy Beats & Left Brain aka MellowHype have hit the charts with their “Blackenedwhite” release on Fat Possum while Tyler, The Creator’s “Goblin” LP is on it’s way to breaking 100k in record sales in only a few short months of its release on XL Recordings. His video’s climb to the million mark on you tube almost the moment they hit the web.
As quickly as Tyler, The Creator’s self-directed video for “Yonkers” climbed into the millions and moved kids around the world, he has earned two MTV VMA nominations for “VIDEO OF THE YEAR” AND “BEST NEW ARTIST”. Tyler is a 20 year old kid with a DIY spirit, who wrote + directed his own video (Yonkers) and now finds himself face to face against major label performers such as Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Beastie Boys.
VOTE FOR TYLER:
