Artist of the Month : Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All ( OFWGKTA )

Peeling the veneer of depravity and iniquity

"   This is what the devil plays before he goes to sleep
Some food for thought some food for death,
go 'head and fuckin' eat...
Odd Future is children that's fucked up on they mental
Simple but probably not, fuck em'  " 
Odd Future - Sandwitches
When a lyrical focal point is based upon rape, murder and a deep hatred towards religion, your bound to ostracize a few listeners. However, if you can get over the offensive on a personal level, and analyze the music  subjectively, as a pure art form - brilliance.  Despite the depravity of the lyrics it is flawlessly swag. 

Odd future is led and created by 'Tyler, the Creator' but accompanied many others : Hodgy beats, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, Mellowhype, The Jet Age of Tomorrow and Mike G ( the rappers of the group ); singer : Frank Ocean, and producers : Left Brain, The Super 3,  and Syd the Kyd. 

When the medium age of the group is under 20, you know that the potential, and longevity of this group is infinite. The production talent this group process is phenomenal, their ability to parallel the emotion of the song into the music is fantastic.  Don't judge the music based on the lyrical context but the art conveyed. Tyler has said it best...
"And we don't fuckin' make horrorcore, you fuckin' idiots
Listen deeper than the music before you put it in a box"
