(You probably could watch this at work, but you might get some looks)
LA's teenage horror-rap crew OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) absolutely DESTROYED it on Fallon last night. Only two of their MCs were there - sadly, not including my favorite, Earl Sweatshirt. I think he got sent to boarding school. No, seriously.
OFWGKTA is obsessed with murder, rape, bodily functions - basically pushing beyond shock into legit creepiness. There is nothing redeeming about the content. NOTHING. On the other hand, the beats and the rhyming are so on point that the hipster critical mass is ballooning at an exponential rate. Check out Mos Def (who was not on the show, but just there hanging out) run up to the camera at the end and start screaming "Swaaaaaag!"
Tyler, The Creator - he's the one in the Supreme hoodie - has now signed to XL, home of Radiohead, MIA, Vampire Weekend, etc. He tweeted last night "My 19 Year Old Life Is Fucking Great."
Ya been warned.
