Odd Future just released an old gem from Earl Sweatshirt called “Dat Ass.” Personally, I like this song because it’s not terrifying. I know the dudes from Odd Future can rap, and it’s cool to see them all rap over more traditional hip-hop beats. I know it’s short, but Earl’s flow is super tight and he uses tons of internal rhymes while fitting in some real awesome punch lines. All I can say is: FREE EARL
Another rapper in Odd Future that should be almost as highly regarded as Tyler The Creator would be Hodgy Beats. “Make My Day” sounds like one of those classy 90’s hip-hop songs that people today listen to and remember for a long time. This would’ve been a great follow-up single for T.W.D.Y. This song came out last year as the first single off Hodgy Beats upcoming mixtape, BeatPads & NotePads.

This is a more common beat for many of the hip-hop members of Odd Future with Mike G in “Forest Green”. I think the rapping is solid, nothing outstanding the beat is chill and would be interesting is somebody sped up the song in some electronic-type remix. First single off Mike G’s upcoming album, GOLD.

Next we got R&B member of OFWGKTA, Frank Ocean. Here’s a new song he released since he released his mixtape, Nostalgia/Ultra, in February. Like the acoustic instrumentals with amazing vocals as many record labels are rumored to be looking to sign this future R&B/Soul star.
