The grass still hasn’t grown back around the stages where Odd Future used to play. Among that wild gang one voice stood out from the rest: Tyler, The Creator was the most menacing, the most magnetic and the most promising of the OFWGKTA collective.

In these times in which hyper-connection ends up condemning us to non-communication, fury, angst, indignation and the truth will be rapped by Tyler, The Creator or it won’t be.
