OFWGTKA(odd future wolf gang kill them all), is a rap collective out of LA. They are leaded by their frontman Tyler, The Creator. Odd Future is supposedly revolutionizing modern day hip hop. Instead of pop/dance beats with autotune, they use rawer beats, rap with rawer lyrics, hell OFWGKTA is just straight up raw. They have many members and even a subgroup known as Mellowhype which consists of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain (song below).
Tyler, the Creator's approach to the rap game was to be as obscene, rude, and vulgar as possible. His track VCR is about rape. He also touches on personal matters such as his dad and his upbringing in his songs. His track Bastard is all about that. Tyler's main hit is labled Yonkers and it's music video consists of him eating a cockroach, throwing it up, and then his eyes get really dilated, and then he hangs himself.
