Guys, seriously. Either post Odd Future news or don't. You now just pick random members to talk about.

I like OF but he is basically the outcast of OF. Aside from some guest spots and being included with them after he got dropped from his major label deal, he isn't REALLY associated like Tyler, Domo, Hodgy, Earl, etc.

It's all been Frank news hasn't it? His music avoids misogyny (barring a couple Tyler guest spots) and use of the word "f-ggot" the rest of the crew has been called out for.

BTW, it says a lot about this community that the homophobic lyrics are called out more than the rape stuff, because the misogyny is much more troubling. Outside of that one lyric in "Tron Cat" and maybe a couple other things I can't remember they're no more homophobic than your average rapper (DMX's "Where The Hood At" is far more homophobic than anything OF have rapped).

Well, he's certainly a member. One of which does have a song about killing women, one of the reasons why this site got so butthurt about them last year. I'm a huge OF fan, as evident by my avatar, but if you're gonna post this, i believe they all should get coverage. I'll excuse the Trash Talk post though, as they are not technically Odd Future haha

There was a Trash Talk post the other day, and a few months back there was even a Mellowhype post, but they usually try to avoid it.

And i agree. I don't find them to be any worse than any other rapper as far as that goes. I actually think they make very positive music.

Trash Talk's not IN OF, they're signed to their label. But OF's music DOES give me a release for my anger, and most of all I like the SOUND of their records, even if Goblin pretty much crapped out in the last 4 or so tracks.

I know that, i'm just saying. They're basically affiliates like Toro Y Moi and Bad Bad Not Good.

Hahaha yeah Goblin could've been a little better. Not their best release. Wolf will be the shit though
