OFWGKTA’s Tyler The Creator: Yonkers

Happy Friday Earthlings:

Odd Future (OFWGKTA) is one of the most promising and hyped new skewl acts changing the game right now.  Although the content is kinda “sketchy”, the Cali collective is light years ahead of the so-called “creativity” out at the moment.  Their leader, Tyler the Creator, has dropped the first “proper” label album “Goblin”  as a solo artist, but believe this…it’s a total representation of the “Wolf Gang“.  Oh yeah, did we mention these cats are between the ages of 17-21?!?  Odd Future Wolf Gang….watch for them.  More posts and news to come about this collective.  To us here at  TheSwitchFlip…it’s like a new Wu-Tang-meets-The Pharcyde.

Kanye West: MTV VMA 2010 Performance of “Runaway”

Kanye West Live at MTV "Runaway" (click)

WhatitdoWorld,

Shout out to the MTV Video Awards this year, it actually wasn’t that bad surprisingly.  Eminem opened and killed it, before whisking off on a private jet to meet Jiggaman in NYC (home and home tour/concert).  The highlight of the night was Kanye West’s closing performance of “Runaway“. This is as brand new song he introduced to the world featuring Pusha T of Clipse. Ye’s “cherry” suit and those licorice kicks were kinda too much, but the contrast against white background and the ballet singers set it off tight!  You make the call…click the image and peep the performance. the buzz over at MTV is that this may be one of Kanye’s best singles ever. I’m not sure, but it is damn catchy.  The performance seemed to be a response to last year’s “nightmare” via Taylor Swift acceptance speech.  But if you really listen to the lyrics a few times, it’s not a shot at her at all. It’s just a play on the lyrics.  Anyhow, the stark contrast of the White backdrop and the single column holding the MPC symbolized West’s situation “me against the world”.  I could’ve done w/o the autotune harmony at the end, but the cool samples he was doing on stage added some spice to the song.  Note: the real single has no autotune, nor the cool samples.  Let us know what you think…..our crew is very excited for the full length album to drop. It’s hard to knock his talent.  Let’s toast to the douchebags and assholes!
