L.E.P. Bogus Boys x Mobb Deep – Gangstaz Only

| July 18, 2011 | 8 Comments

Produced by Frank Dukes

I’m happy to present to you the world premiere of the long awaited and highly anticipated collaboration from the Bogus Boys and Mobb Deep. These two factions have been compared ad nauseam lately, so it’s only right that they hooked up for “Gangtaz Only.” Lames need not apply. Video on the way.

Now or Neva coming soon. I heard a few records last night, and all I can say is expect big things from this project.

Video: Odd Future Live @ Pitchfork Music Fest

With the live footage beginning to pour in, here we have an injured Tyler hobbling to the stage on crutches with a broken foot to kick off Odd Future’s performance at the 2011 Pitchfork Music Fest. Out of all acts I watched over the weekend, Odd Future was by far the biggest draw. Free Earl shirts? Check. Kids in Supreme snapbacks? Check. Upside down crosses on the forehead? Of course. It was truly a site to see.

I had no idea Tyler was injured, but apparently he broke his foot a few weeks ago. It didn’t seem to matter to the OFWGKTA frontman, as he performed on a stool and hobbled around on one leg throughout the set. And before the group finished up, they destroyed the stool and other objects onstage.

Pic: Odd Future Delivers Cupcakes To Protesters

| July 17, 2011 | 3 Comments

As I mentioned earlier today, Odd Future had their share of controversy over the weekend as a handful of Chicago advocacy groups didn’t appreciate their music and message coming to the Pitchfork Music Festival. Being the upstanding citizens that they are, OFWGKTA surprised their protesters with a box of cupcakes. What a nice treat on Chicago’s hottest day of the year. All’s well that ends well.
