The Wolf Gang is taking their brand of insanity to television viewers with a new Adult Swim series for 2012.

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All may be one of the most critically divisive Hip Hop acts of the past decade, but that hasn’t stopped them from finding an audience. Now, fresh off Tyler, the Creator’s recent VMA win, Adult Swim has announced that they have picked up a new TV series starring the Wolf Gang set to debut next year.

According to a recent press release, OFWGKTA’s “Loiter Squad” has been picked up by the late night cartoon network. Although details on what will actually appear on the 15 minute program are slim, previous reports indicate that the show will resemble “…a mixture of ‘Jackass’ and ‘Chappelle’s Show,'” featuring sketches, man-on-the street segments and pranks.

The “Jackass” connections don’t stop with the show’s description, however. Dickhouse Entertainment, the “Jackass”-founded production company comprised of Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and “Otis” director Spike Jonze, will produce “Loiter Squad.” Tremaine and Adult Swim Nick Widenfield will also act as executive producers for the show.

Anytime a big-named artist plays in Europe, its likely they’ll end up on this man’s show. A legend in his own right, Tim Westwood shares the radio airwaves this week with none other than Odd Future. It appears the whole crew was on hand and shared some of their recent happenings with Tim, including their thoughts on the whole B.o.B. debacle. It’s 9 minutes long, check it out!

 

Pusha T waxes about Tyler The Creator and co., as well as his upcoming mixtape.

As fans continue to debate what Pusha T’s solo work means for the future of Clipse, Pusha T gears up for a G.O.O.D. Music label release of Fear of God 2.

In an interview with thebvx.com, the Virginia native explained that the release would expound on the original Fear of God mixtape, with more in store for fans. “I’m keeping a couple of those joints from the first mixtape but added other joints and other features. We got some surprises. Ye is there. Odd Future’s there. That’s a couple gems. The beat just sounds so demonic. But I actually have to give it an [official] title. I tweeted the news the other day, when I finished it. I think we got one. It’s the three of us — Tyler, Hodgy Beats and me.”

On the topic of Odd Future, Pusha described meeting the ringleader of the group, Tyler the Creator. “Tyler’s such a fan, came to our video and said, ‘Yo, I have three beats that I made for you … and just know they’re for you. Please … hear it.’ He sends them over … I was like this is aight, this is aight, but the third one. He said, ‘I put a verse on it and Hodgy put a verse on it.’ [You’re] gonna be so amazed at the marriage, some things don’t always mesh man. But these guys are super-super talented. I can’t wait for the world to see each of our talents collide.”

Pusha added that he’s enjoying his solo work, and the opportunity to show his introspective side. “[N]ow I get to showcase a bit of that side of me.”

 

During a press conference in France, the OF clan also discussed Tyler, The Creator’s “Goblin” and “Yonkers.”

Odd Future has some dicey words for a journalist who went off-topic. During a press conference in Paris for Tyler, The Creator’s upcoming sophomore album  Goblin, OF member Left Brain lashed out at a journalist for veering from focusing on the group and asking a question about Lil B.

“Fuck Based God, this is an Odd Future press conference. Y’all be talking about other shit. Stay on topic, girl,” he scolded. “It’s Goblin, Tyler, The Creator right here. Fuck Lil B, don’t talk about him.”

The rest of the press conference was more cordial, with group leader Tyler speaking on how he conceptualized the controversial video for his single “Yonkers.” “That wasn’t going to be the first single. And the old ass white dude right there who goes around with us, he was like, ‘You should do this as the first single.’ I was like um, OK. He was like, ‘Think of a video,’” he said. “I was like, how ‘bout I kill myself at the end of the fucking video and I eat a fucking cockroach, how ‘bout that? And we did it. There wasn’t that much thought into it.”

As for his pending sophomore album, he didn’t want to ruin any surprises. “You’ll just have to hear it, because I don’t want to give you any idea of what it’s like,” he continued. “So then when I give you an idea of what it’s like, you go in there expecting something and then when it doesn’t become what you’re expecting, you give a biased opinion of it because you had high hopes for it or low hopes or some shit. So I’d rather you just go in there and listen to it flat, straight out, so you can have an honest opinion.”

Goblin is scheduled to hit stores on May 10th.

  

Bobby Ray logs another diss track to the 10-person crew out of Cali.

The war of words rages on between B.o.B and Odd Future. Bobby Ray, who released his Tyler, The Creator diss on “No Future,” revives the beef on a track included on Tech N9ne’s “Am I a Pyscho?” off his upcoming album All 6’s and 7’s

The track, produced by B.o.B and also featuring Hopsin, touts the Atlanta, Georgia native on the chorus. His verse at the end of the tune is packed with subliminals directed towards the West Coast crew, using a similar flow that Eminem used in diss tracks to Benzino.

Complex.com previewed the album, which also features a skit titled “Call From Richie” that makes mention of an old HHDX interview. The LP, which features guest appearances from Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Busta Rymes, T-Pain, Yelawolf and more, is slated to hit stores on June 7th.

 

After months of major labels trying to sign OFWGKTA, the group sign themselves and may start Odd Future Records.

While rumors have been buzzing about different major labels fighting for OFWGKTA (a/k/a Odd Future) to sign on the dotted line, it seems the group has decided to “sign themselves.” Reports indicate that Odd Future Records will sign with RED Distribution/Sony. 

OFWGKTA’s manager, Chris Clancy replied to Rap Radar when pressed for comment about the group’s deal.  

“It’s based on getting the distribution deal we’ve always envisioned that allows the group to ‘sign themselves’ to their own company and keep their masters. They will have 100% creative control of all aspects of their music, art, and release schedule with no 3rd party participation in outside business. Freedom and ownership was the whole point. Red and Sony know that its in everyone’s best interest to maintain the group’s authenticity and control. They built it, they deserve it. There’s no cheesy hooks or fluorescent liquor product placements in the works..  It’s about to be fun.. and different.. “

Tyler, the Creator spoke on this also. Through his Twitter page, Tyler gave more details on the matter noting that Odd Future will have a label but that they will remain in-house.

Lyrically, the album is often obscene, typical of the works created by OFWGKTA and its members, which is particularly notable because Earl Sweatshirt himself was 16 years old at the time of this release.[4]

Upon its release the album was met with much interest and general acclaim on the web. Pitchfork Media called the album “mesmerizing”.[5] Underground music blog Altered Zones listed Earl as one of their top 20 albums of 2010, praising the album for its ferocity and for making “some of the most vile verses sound eloquent”.[6] Music site Gorilla vs. Bear listed it at number 12 in its list of the 30 best albums of 2010.[7]

The music video for the title song was released on YouTube on July 26, 2010. As of April 20, 2011, the video has more than 2.5 million views.
