Odd Future (short for Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), a ten-member cult rap collective from L.A., bring to mind a younger, crazier Wu-Tang Clan -- if the Clan had skateboarded and rhymed about drugs and gore instead of chess and kung-fu. Ranging from the age 16 to 20, core members Earl Sweatshirt, Mike G, Left Brain, Hodgy Beats, and Tyler, the Creator started making music along with collaborators Taco, Matt Martians, Domo Genesis, Syd, and Jasper Dolphin in 2007. The crewâ€™s crude sense of humor and confrontational subject matter earned them a huge underground following, and put them on â€œtop artists to watchâ€� lists. Throughout 2010 and 2011 Tyler, Earl, Mike G, and MellowHype (Hodgy and Left Brain) released mixtapes individually, but an official album didn't arrive until the 2012 release of The OF Tape, Vol. 2. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
