Are you one of Tyler's "new f****t ass followers" on Twitter? We suggest you take his advice and download Bastard if you don't already have a copy. In addition to being one of last year's best mixtapes, the album should also help you make sense of the fuck-you-this-is-art approach to hip-hop prominence. After all, Tyler's Odd Future collective could write the best-selling how-to book on the subject.
Just yesterday, the blogosphere's favorite rap ruffians finalized a deal with RED Distribution/Sony, and gave birth to an independent baby label, Odd Future Records. Chris Clancy, the group's manager, explained the situation in an interview with MTV News.
"The way it's working is Odd Future Records is an entity that will live on RED Distribution," he said, "which will be run and operated by Odd Future. That means in regards to releases, art, music, schedule, we're not bound to quarters and that type of stuff... it's not just the creative control, it's the business control. It's both."
We can't help but wonder what crazy shit Odd Future Records has in store, so naturally we came up with a list of hypotheticals--everything from odd collaborations, whacky album titles, and fucked-up lyrics. Check our Crossfade's Odd Future Wish List (of sorts) after the jump.
