Odd Future Tear It Up on Jimmy Fallon
Say the name.
Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All is a name that we will all have memorized pretty soon. Last night, they beamed into the homes of people whose curiosities have been piqued by the buzz, and those who find Jimmy Fallon entertaining and stick around for the musical act. Shock and awe all around.
The duo from Odd Future had Fallon’s house band The Roots playing the grimiest beat they’ve ever played as group leader Tyler the Creator and Hodgy Beats bounded around the smoky stage amongst lawn gnomes and a zombied out girl they likely brought from home. Tyler ender the show with a forced piggy back ride from Fallon.
The crew of 11 underage Angelenos are the next big thing in hip hop of the informed lyrical kind. The flows are evil and cynical, the beats are undeniably LA (think of the regulars at Low End Theory), and the content channels Gravediggaz and the the darkest personas of Kool Keith. Their debut is due out on XL later this year.
As far as the Fallon performance, the question is not “Is Odd Future ready for TV?” Rather it’s “Is TV rea…” you know the rest.
