Band of the Day (4.1.11) Goblin
Seriously this is no April Fool’s joke. Tyler, the Creator, is amazing, he is a founding member of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA), the 10-person hip hop collective that are roaming around your inbox. Tyler, the Creator, has made a splash of his own. On December 25, 2009, Tyler self-released his first album, Bastard. The album, quickly buzzed for its dark energy and punishing beats and eventually ranked 32nd on Pitchfork Media’s list of the Top Albums of 2010. In early March Tyler released his new single “Yonkers” and since that time, Kayne obsessively called it the video of 2011, and Diddy has called him the future of the music industry. Now it’s your turn to be the judge, watch the video of “Yonkers”, listen to a few tracks and grab his new vinyl here.
