Odd Future came out guns blazing a few years ago. It started with Earl, then shifted to Tyler the creator and a few months later they were doing sold out shows in Dusseldorf. Regardless of how you may feel about them, at the least, it’s been an impressive rise.
Now, at this point, I feel like the Odd future backlash is upon us. Earls album was simply okay, a lot of people (myself included) are feeling like some of the less central members (domo and vince staples) are actually sounding like the most solid of the bunch. I’m in no way signing this crew off as , for one, they are very young and talented and , secondly, they have made their share of good music. It just feels like the edge has faded. But this isn’t about the crew as a whole…
This is about one man. The head of the whole operation. Tyler.
To be honest, I’ve never loved him as a rapper or as a producer. He’s certainly made some good joints but the growly voice, second rate eminem raps thing just doesn’t have much sticking power to me. But, hey, that’s me and that’s why I have this poll. I’m curious where you stand on Tyler the Creator as the year 2013 is coming to an end (kind of).He recently dropped a new video
Song aside, he does make pretty good videos. That’s been the most consistent thing about him.
So, taking what you already know and this new song, what do you think of Tyler the Creator right now?
