Song of The Day #177

"Bastard" by Tyler, The Creator

There are a couple reasons Tyler and his Odd Future crew have been getting a lot of hype lately. The first reason is presumably because they're really, really batshit crazy. Their beats are fuzzy, their lyrics are bizarre and random and unlike any other hip-hop lyrics, and they themselves are wild and strung out seemingly all the time. But these dudes are also getting hype because their music, crazy as it may be, is very good. This cut, the title track from Tyler's album, is a slow-moving banger, full of hatred and humor and more non sequiturs than you can shake a stick at. We'll see what happens to Odd Future in the future, but, for now, they're ruling underground hip-hop.
