What the F*&k is all the Hype about?

OFWGKTA has been billed as the next big thing. Ok they are next big thing. In our eyes anyway.

Wait, what the hell is OFWGKTA? Odd. Future. Wolf. Gang. Kill. Them. All is a rap group out of Hell A (L.A) and as the blogosphere would have it, the next Wu Tang Clan. This wolf pack (uhhm excuse the pun) is headed by the "hottest nigger right now" Tyler Okonma (or as you probably know him, Tyler the Creator, Wolf Haley, Ace the Creator and I'm sure he's got a few more alias' up his sleeve.) Tyler and his gang, including Domo Genisis, Earl Sweatshirt (on hiatus in military School) and Frank Ocean, self promote, write, produce and manage and have successfully taken over the world. Not really. But almost quiet. From a bunch of angsty 16 something to 20 year olds writting about what really keeps them awake at night, to touring the world - these kids are on fire. If you get a chance, go and watch the Goblin Launch somewhere on Youtube to see just how energetic their shows are. Harking back to the good old days of music.

They don't make music to keep your parents happy. They make real music. What eats them up inside. What bugs us all, but scares us too much to say. They just have the balls to do it.

Head over to their tumblr and site to see what the hell i'm talking about.
