GOdd Quotations: Odd Future

GOdd Quotations: Odd Future

So, I was going to write a little blurb in defense of those Wolf Gang kids — one that properly explained how any of the highly controversial, misogynistic, homophobic, and hateful verses could possibly be construed as Good. But then I realized, chances are you’ve already come to your own conclusions about these most divisive, pop culture-phenomehoodlums. You’ve probably already decided that there’s either no excuse for what they spit or that they’re just sitting back and laughing at the reactions to their purposeful and reactionary provocations. I guess it’s obvious where we stand.

“This is for the niggas in the suburbs.
And the white kids with nigger friends who say the n-word.
And the ones that got called weird, fag, bitch, nerd,
Cause you was into jazz, kitty cats, and Steven Spielberg.
They say we ain’t actin’ right,
Always try to turn our fucking color into black and white.
But they’ll never change ’em, never understand ’em,
Radical’s my anthem, turn my fuckin’ amps up!
So instead of critiquing and bitching, being mad as fuck,
Just admit, not only are we talented, we’re rad as fuck.”

Tyler, The Creator, “Oldie
