Adult Swim on Cartoon Network is where you want to be if you’re into juvenile male ratchetness. It’s no wonder Odd Future’s sketch show “Loiter Squad” has found a home on the channel which brings teen boys, and men suffering from a case of Peter Pan syndrome (PPS) shows including “The Venture Bros.,” “Robot Chicken,” and  Aqua Teen Hunger Force.”  (more…)

 

Odd Future is back with one “Rella” crazy video!  (more…)

OFWGKTA’s Syd The Kyd’s side project with collaborator Matt Martian, The Internet is taking off.  The duo’s first album “Purple Naked Ladies” is on iTunes now. In the video for the single “Fastlane”, Syd and her partner in crime and love commit theft and murder a la Bonnie and Clyde.

So, hot or not?

OFWGKTA  producer and sometimes rapper Syd the Kyd graced the cover of this week’s edition of LA Weekly. Since Syd is a member of a controversial  and outspoken group you never know what is going to come out of her mouth. Well, her latest statement about lesbians in urban music may put a few panties in a bunch.

 

Syd the Kyd called out Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys and Missy Elliott as lesbians!

 

“There’s Alicia Keys, who’s married to Swizz Beatz – we know that shit ain’t real. You got Queen Latifah kissing Common in movies. Missy Elliott saying she don’t wanna hang with bitches. You know she loves her some bitches.”

 

Oddly enough, although Syd identifies as gay, she is not entirely fond of the word “lesbian.”

 

To date none of the artists she called out have issued any statements.

 

Stay tuned.

Tyler, The Creator took to his Formspring to answer questions about his arrest for vandalism two nights ago. It turns out he was just trying to help a few female fans who were in trouble as a result of the crowd getting out of control.

 

duding RADICALS, i was on the piano playing the breakdown, only to notice that the music and sound was low, lights went off and that shit wasnt right, i get up, look, and notice that it was two girls hurt from the mosh pits behind them. i grab my mic to tell the crowd to come calm down and inform security because it was none around in the front, but i then find out the sound dude turned everything off. so im on stage while its mosh pits and chaos on stage ( i played live with Trash Talk, and it was a home show so everyone from OF was there wildn) pointing at my mic tell sound dude to turn it up turn it up, hes shaking his head no.i keep doing this for at least 70 seconds until i get fed up and run over to him threw the crowd. i jump on his sound board and say’ n**ga turn my fucking mic up its bitches hurt, let me tell the crowd to calm down, they listen to me’ this n**ga goes on saying he doesnt have control his manager said this and that. i keep asking, we go back and forth. i kick the plexi glass and stomp on the cheap ass soundboard, then throw my mike on the floor. go back on stage just in time to throw a couple gifts out to the crowd ( it was the xmas show). someone states ‘ lets get you outta here’. i walk outside to like 20 cops, helicopters, shotguns and some other shit. jail is really cold dude, i had no socks on. im fine tho, bail was alot even tho i didnt hurt anyone, i damaged some shit. and idk why rappers talk about jail like its cool, omg i would go crazy. all i could think about was skating the bowl like 8 hours before haha. i havent looked but the media prolly made it seem more epic than it actually is.

but overall, i finally feel black.

 

Tyler’s take on jail is somewhat refreshing; he admits it wasn’t cool. While his assertion that he “finally feel[s]s Black” may be taken out of context we get it. Ah, never a dull moment with OFWGKTA.
