Odd future this. Odd future that. Are you sick of hearing about these guys yet?

I’m gettin there. the crazy part is that most people haven’t really dug into the catalog of all the different arms of OFWGKTA, and are really basing their opinion on a song or two, or what everyone else is saying.

Polarizing would be an understatement.. it seems you either think tyler and earl are the next jay and nas, or you think they are attention seeking, shock rapping children who listened to too much Marshall Mathers and don’t deserve the shine they are getting over the last few months.

I suppose i’m one of the few who is somewhere in between. I don’t really care for them, personally, but i have to admit that when i put their ridiculous antics aside and just listen to the music, there are some gems. Imagine if you had never heard of Tyler and his gang of raping skateboarders and this song came on the radio. Tell me you wouldn’t wanna know who is that spittin’ or who produced this?

.. you would. Because this is good hip-hop.  and if i stop and really think about it, i can almost justify their sometimes ridiculous behavior. I mean, they are all under 20, and based god knows, when i was a teenager, i was wild as fuck, and i’m sure i said some crazy shit on the regular. Not to mention that i wasn’t dealing with new found celebrity and loads of cash and bitches who wanna throw it at me on GP.

moral of the story, you probably shouldn’t take OFWGKTA too seriously, but you might really miss out on some good shit if you don’t take the time to listen to the music.

    Well said.

    These kids make fun music that has a fresh energy. They haven’t reinvented the wheel or pioneered anything new, but they’re still making some good Hip-Hop music, and as far as I’m concerned, for right now, that’s good enough.

    BTW – Tyler’s gonna need to put in a little more work if he really wants that Grammy.


  2. they’re not bad, just not my cup of whiskey.

  3. Well said. The recent deluge of articles about them have been infuriating. Bloggers will discuss anything to avoid critically analyzing their actual music.

    I’ve only heard a few song myself mostly from Earl and Tyler, after i realize i well never bother w/ another song of there’s in the immediate future not because its terrible it because it not…

    The talent is obviously there, but the type subject matter they rap about isn’t anything I’m interested in listening to…

    their only teenagers so they haven’t lived much of a life to bring any variety of topics to the table that will hold my attention.

    Earl being 17 and being able to rap as well as he does is remarkable to me. Tyler is really dope with the prod.

    So in closing I don’t care for these kids now but maybe in 5 years (if i still remember who they are) will give them another listen.
