Odd Future: Tyler The Creator and Hodgy Beats on Fallon

Since I actually sought this out on tv and stayed up to watch it, AND it turned out to be more than worth the time and effort, sharing seemed to be on order.  It’s Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats of OFWGKTA.

So check this out and enjoy it as I have.  Several times already.  A few highlights:  Their insane energy and enthusiasm.  Tyler getting away with wearing the upside-down cross ski mask.  The song itself, fucking great even when edited.  The J-horror girl standing there doing nothing.  The gnome.  Felicia Day warily shouting “WOLF!” And of course the perma-grin final few seconds in which Jimmy Fallon carries Tyler piggyback, and a (possibly inebriated?) Mos Def shouts “SWAG, SWAG, SWAG!”

About David James

I try to do good in life. I strive to help others. My drive is to open minds, and share art which aids in achieving that goal. Writing is what I do. Music is my passion.

  1. Thanks for this…I’ve been sleeping on current hip-hop for much too long. This and your Lil B post have slapped some sense back into me.

    • Well in that case, you are very welcome! I felt the same way about current hiphop last year and made it a point to rectify. If you’re not already aware, Tyler is releasing his album Goblin very soon, the lead single Yonkers has an incredible video you must see…

  2. Yes! Checked out their site shortly after seeing your Fallon post. Video is sick. Cool that they are in the skating scene as well. GOLF WANG

  3. keep up the nice work on the site. I love it. Could use some more frequent updates, but im quite sure that you got better things to do , hehe. =)
