I've been meaning to check out Tyler The Creator & Odd Future's Loiter Squad series for awhile now. I've never been the biggest fan of Odd Future, but have always respected their originality and continued actions of staying true to themselves. I've also been coming around on Tyler's music especially (Wolf has some jams on it).
Now last night, I was watching late night cartoons with my dad (yup, Papa Tibs is pretty awesome) on the Adult Swim. One episode of Cleveland Show, then two of Family Guy, then to my surprise: Loiter Squad (I didn't know when it airs). By this point, Papa Tibs had nodded off and went to bed while I was about ready to shut off the disracting TV to get back to work. Sure enough, I couldn't press the power button before realizing that it was Tyler posing as Mo'Nique. Hah!
Now fully reeled in, I enjoyed fast-pace sketches spoofing Survivor with rappers (the Drake and DMX impersonations were on point), Kiss (the heavy metal band), and just an overall, eclectic, and straight up odd mix of different types of skits that were broken up throughout the 10 or 11 minute episode. The audience loves things (and has the attention for) small doses so I thought the structure of the show was great. Same with the length. Because while I throughouly and surprisingly enjoyed all of the humor in the 10-11 minutes, I don't think I couldn't watched a full 30. And I definitely think Papa Tibs would have drawn the line there (weird humor like Odd Future is well past the line he draws to Will Ferrell movies, unfortunately. The Simpsons and Family Guy is about the extent he'll go, hah.)
In summary, I haven't watched Loiter Squad before last night. It was odd and hilarious and I enjoyed it. The episode is also ripped to the interwebs so you can enjoy it yourself above (*tips hat*Yardie).
Well, if you were one of those many unfortunate people like myself who can’t attend Jay-Z’sMade In America Festival your in luck. Hov has teamed up with Hollywood producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer to produce the documentary style film. The file will show every aspect of the festival through the eyes of Jay-Z.
"The festival showcases 20 pre-eminent artists that speak to the new generation,” Basker tells the NY Post. “I am producing the film with Steve Stoute and Jay. Ron is directing. It is going to be born through Jay-Z’s perspective . . . how he puts the event together.” He added, “Jay stayed the king for a very long time . . . I can’t even begin to explain how he is capable of remaining relevant. He is a phenom, like a musical Michael Jordan".
I really can’t wait for this! Seeing Jay-Z myself live 3 times he puts on a great show. Plus the festival will feature performance sets from Drake, Odd Future, MayBach Music Group, and Run DMC to name a few.
While in New York, Tyler, Earl,Domo, Hodgy, and Jasper hit up Hot97 with Peter Rosenberg to do a playful rendition of "H.A.M.". Tyler brings the heaters while Earl teaches us all how to make a sandwich. Lulz for days.
