For the first time it seems, the Odd Future gang's music videos have caught up with their lyrical content, judging by their brand-new video for "Rella," off upcoming release The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 (due March 20). The album, minus former member Earl Sweatshirt, is the group's studio debut.
The embattled group, already no stranger to controversy -- like Left Brain hitting photographers at the Voodoo Festival and Tyler, The Creator getting arrested at an L.A. show after jumping onto a soundboard at the venue -- may have reached a turning point with Vol. 2. At least in terms of creating something all their own.
The video for "Rella" is one of the most manic and fucking-off things we've seen in some time, though it's only a matter of time before that girl-slap at 1:17 stirs up some ire. OK, a lot of ire. Total anger coming soon. Group member Domo Genesis slaps the "black" off a woman and somehow turns her Asian. Let's just get that into the blog for maximum Google search opportunities.
"lol this my 31st time watchin this shit.... #Classic"
I guess I have watched it about, five or six times myself. The Tyler centaur is entrancing, I hate centaurs as a rule. Also, hash tags in YouTube comments? #really?
"i find this easy to masterbate to."
Welp, I once rubbed one out to a Fiona Apple video, so who am I to
tug, I judge...
"i can't stop watching this... how many times is too many times?"
At the point when you make the image of Tyler's penis-less crotch the background on your phone, is a good time to stop watching.
"fart in the homies mouth."
I feel very old now.
"this shit is mad funny i laughed so hard milk came out that fat bitch is ugly...."
Whole milk or skim?
"This is shit. Our generations music sucks mad hard"
It could be worse?
"I cant stop watchin this video haha. That Asian is sexy as hellll"
For a woman who was just slapped, I guess...
"tyler is overly attractive in that wig"
Getting a total Lancelot vibe.
"Thumbs up if you think Tyler makes an ugly horse!"
There are pretty horse people?
"COME SEE MY MUSIC VIDEO BAD STRIPPERS ASS SHAKING!"
"I would love to see the analytics of this video and how many people stopped watching at 0:12"
Less than you think.
"omg im so high"
"Ahaha He picked on the ginger Its funny cause no one likes gingers"
At least no one slapped the ginger out of him.
"I just came here for the centaur"
"This is fucking horrible.
2pac AND Biggie would come back to life just to slap Odd Future"
Or ask them to tone it down a little, since they would be boring sitcom stars now.
