I was going to say Odd Future made headlines a couple months ago...but when aren't they making headlines for doing something? They were set to play at New Zealand's Big Day Out Festival,until someone started a petition to have them axed from the concert for supposedly being homophobic. As a result, they were banned from the festival for allegedly being homophobic, despite the one female in the collective, Syd the Kid, being lesbian. Odd Future still went to New Zealand, and instead of performing in the Big Day Out Festival, they're throwing their own concert Big Gay Out outside the festival walls, which I have to admit, made me chuckle (kind of like Tyler The Creator dressing up at Big Sean or Kanye). That news segment made it sound like Big Gay Out is moving more tickets than Big Day Out. Seen at HHU

I chanced upon Tyler, The Creator's previously unreleased track called "Fuck This Elections" from 2008 as I sipped my coffee this morning afternoon, and I was super surprised by what I heard. Most notably, we hear Tyler, The Creator rapping like a backpacker, with none of his trademark ghoulish, slowed down lines that he has become popular for. He literally sounds like a backpack rapper, like Will.i.am sounded before he made a conscious decision to go mainstream. While he is still in essence saying "fuck all the candidates," he is doing so amidst some keen observations. " he actually has some pretty keen observations. I was actually extremely impressed by what he rapped about. He talked about President Carter, Sarah Palin "but don't call me a motherfucker cause I'd rather fuck her daughter," McCain having AIDS (?), and of course, Obama. I thought it was cool how he addressed the nation's obsession with candidate Obama, telling them to put his face on a foodstamp, but also addressing the fact that he was expected to show affection because he's black. Plus, he also addressed things like Prop 8 and the economic climate, with gas being $4 a gallon (and 4 years later, it's still hovering near that price. More notable to me than how different his flow sounds, or that he isn't head over heels in love with Obama, is kind of his general indifference to the election. Sure, he obviously knows what he's talking about, which is more than most of audience, I'm sure, but the mood I'm feeling from the song is that he just kind of doesn't care. That might have to do with the fact that he wasn't of voting age for the 2008 election, ...
I use the term "hot mess" freely, and more oftentimes than not, endearingly, mostly because it's such an all encompassing term. In other words, I use it both positively and negatively. Plus, it works well with the whole name of my blog and all. Case in point, that hood Harry Potter post is a hot mess...in a good way. One of the funniest things I've seen this year. I love it...a lot. Anyway, here's my list of the 13 Hottest Hot Messes of 2011. See this increasing list size as I go? Yeah? 13. Lil B is falls under the affectionate definition of "hot mess." As positive, loving to his fans, and appreciative of his cat, as he is...he's still kind of a hot mess. But, he's the Based God. Arguably, Lil B's verse from "Grove St Party" on Weezy's Sorry 4 The Wait could have occupied this list spot. Or Sorry 4 The Wait could have. But, Lil B is not the Based God for nothing. Thank you, Based God. 12. Gucci Mane was sentenced to 6 months in prison in September for pushing a woman out of a moving vehicle, after he had mistaken her for a prostitute, and she wasn't. Of course, it's completely natural and normal to be picked up in the morning, asking if you want to go to breakfast. Um, no. She should get her own number in this Hot Mess list. 11. If you thought Gucci was bad, TI probably set the record in returning to prison. He was released from prison, and picked up by a luxury ...
2-Cent is a grassroots media collective that is a "collaborative effort of creative, frustrated, and comedic twenty-somethings" out of New Orleans, and you can read more about what they're doing on their website. Each year, they do a hilarious video like this as a gift to their supporters. In case you're wondering, the 2011>2010. I just watched it. I thought I posted the 2010 version last year, but I can't find it (I didn't look every hard, either). Anyway, this is pretty hilarious, and it's hard to pick my favorite feature, but I'm going to have to go with Lil B on this one."Matter fact call me baby Jesus 'cause I look like George Bush." So Based. The order of appearances are: Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Plies, Rick Ross, Beyonce, J.Cole, Jay-Z & Kanye West, Tyler the Creator, Kreayshawn, Lil B, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Birdman, Drake, Wyclef, Rihanna and LMFAO.
I saw this picture over at the BBC blog, and it is really funny to me. As beautiful as Pharrell is, he sometimes looks a little awkward in his pictures (hey, it happens to the best of us). Lupe is looking all awkward trying doing the Startrak hand sign, and Tyler, The Creator is like trying to mean mug Lupe but he looks like he's laughing, and he's wearing a shirt with a cross-eyed cat. In other words, just another day in the studio. My, how I would like to be a fly on the wall for that! Also, please note that the cat's eyes on Tyler's shirt match my site colors almost flawlessly. Last night, I went to the Dom Kennedy show at Neumos. I walked in around 9:30ish during Royce the Choice's set, and I have never been to a concert that was that packed, that early, with that much smoke in the air. People obviously smoke at hiphop concerts, but it was like a smoke machine had been on all day. What's even more impressive is that it was in a fairly large sized venue, at least in comparison to like, say, a tour bus. While I was upstairs, probably getting high from just breathing, I thought I saw Pharrell through the smoky haze. Like, legitimately did a double take. But, it wasn't him. BBC
The Game's R.E.D. Album is actually coming out next week, and no unicorns were hurt, seen, or involved in this process, so far as I can tell. No longer is it at Detox status. As such, he's been acting like a loon this past week or so, because he has an album to promote. He tweeted the LA County Sheriff's phone number, and for some reason they decided not to prosecute him after he went on CNN. He is trying to start some beef with Lil B, declaring him the "wackest rapper" (Lil Zane, Vanilla Ice, Memphis Bleek and Ras Kas also made the top 5). No, he did not rule out collaborations with them, in case you're wondering. Game also made a Jay-Z diss song called "Uncle Otis," but perhaps the worst of his schemes was releasing "Daytona 500 Bars," which, as the title suggests, is 500 bars of him rapping over Jayne's (Jay-Z and Kanye, get hip) "Otis" beat. AKA too much for me to handle. I rather enjoy this "Martians Vs Goblins" track, though. The whole premise is pretty cutesy, featuring Tyler, The Creator who released his album Goblin a while back, and Weezy, the self-proclaimed "Martian." See, it's pretty clever! I just don't get where Game fits into it, though. He doesn't claim to be any type of non-human, science fictional being thing (what exactly are goblins?). Coincidentally, or not coincidentally, Game sounds exactly like Tyler, The Creator. Did Tyler ghostwrite that verse? I'm including Tyler's verse for kicks because it is funny as hell. I'm really starting to like this kid, and the fact that he's rapping about Detox being nonexistent (paraphrased, of course) and The Game namedropping everyone. By the way, that line about Christopher's new hair is the highlight of the verse. Pun intended? You decide. A year ...
Last night, I was perusing the internet when I saw that Kanye tweeted something! Like God himself had stepped off his throne to hit a retweet! Now, we all remember what happened in 2009 after Taylor Swift upset Beyonce--at least in Kanye's mind--to win that Best Female Video VMA. Earlier this year, Kanye tweeted that Tyler, The Creator's video for "Yonkers" was the video of the year. Tyler is up against Big Sean and Sisqo Chris Brown for "My Last," Kreayshawn's "Gucci Gucci," Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," and Foster the People's "Pumped Up The Kicks" (yeah, I don't know either). If it isn't on MTV Jams, then it doesn't exist. I'm partial to Tyler's video. Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa are not new to me, and, well, it's Kreayshawn. I'm only throwing minimal shade when I saw this, but if Kreayshawn wins, I hope that someone throws a temper tantrum on stage. Hell, I don't even know if Kanye is going to be in the building. Or if he's invited. So I guess I have no other option but to leave y'all with what is known at the #KanyeShrug.
This video has got to be one of my favorites of the year, besides "HiiiPower," "6 Foot 7 Foot" and "Look At Me Now." First came dope music, and then came the visuals for "Trouble on my Mind." Although I haven't spent much time listening to Tyler or Odd Future in general, this video makes me want to see what they're about, if they're deserving of this Pusha T collabo with Neptunes production.
Howdy Partna. First, it was Big Sean. Now, Tyler, The Creator Tyler dresses up as Kanye. I wonder what who he will dress up as for Halloween. I got a good chortle out of Tyler, The Creator's tweet: I don't know about y'all, but I personally hope that he dresses up as Drake next.
People are acting a fool on Twitter this week. Sheesh. Cassidy and Swizzy. Rhymefest and Lil B. Now, Chris Breezy and Tyler, The Creator. Rap-Up screencapped their at-times subliminal messages to each other, and you can read everything here, my dear reader, if you're feeling so inclined. To summarize it, Chris Brown said demonic music is wack, and then Tyler, The Creator wondered why he was talking about Metallica. Chris Breezy says he promotes positivity but isn't a saint (um...ya think?), Tyler makes fun of his bleached hair, Chris comments about people tweeting him to start beef, Tyler says how much he loves "Look At Me Now," Breezy thanks his fans for making that song double platinum, Chris points out that he never mentioned anyone in the OF camp, Tyler asks Chris if he likes soup, Breezy tells everyone to go follow Hodgy Beats...and Tyler ends it with this gem: This isn't the first time that Chris Breezy has gotten into a tiff over twitter. Remember when he and Raz B got into it? Yeah, Breezy, people @ you on twitter to start beef because you seem to respond. I wonder if he noticed that correlation.
