I still kinda liked them whenever we talked. But let's just say I tend to try and argue against people that I think are over-hyping any artist.
The hype is only getting going - it's getting bigger every day, and now they've been photographed with the Biebs, and shouted out by Kanye and Pharrell on Twitter, among others. Get used to it.
I don't know much about them but I just read that many people in rap are into them. Here's from a site I found:
Who the fk is talking about Odd Future?
The Roots' drummer and ringleader Questlove supposedly helped get them booked for Fallon after hearing about them from Mos Def, who was in the house at both of their two shows in New York City. Everyone in rap is excited about them right now. Questlove even had Jay-Z watching last night. And after Kanye West, Rhianna, Drake, and a handful of other acts made all the more powerful by Jay-Z's anointment of status, they very well could be causing you to lock away your loved ones shortly (while you listen to them in secret).

Honestly OFWGKTA is probably the biggest realistic add I could possibly hope for. That name alone would honestly make this already incredible lineup so much better. Would be within my top 3 most anticipated sets of the weekend for sure, if not #1.
Where would they even play though? Tent closer on Thurs? Jay Elec type spot on one of the weekdays?

Two of the guy were just recently signed to Fat Possum records....sorry if that's been posted in here......i'm a noob with OFWGKTA. I just noticed they got signed because I like Fat Possum and was happy to see The Felice Brothers sign to that label......then out of nowhere I read that two guys from OFWGKTA got signed as well. that's awesome.

MellowHype (OFWGKTA) sign to Fat Possum for a hard release of BlackenedWhite. It was originally featured on Odd Future's website back on Halloween and has since been remixed and remastered with bonus content for a physical release on CD and Vinyl this summer.
