Leah LaBelle, Tyle The Creator (and his wandering eyes), Miley Cyrus, and Pharrell
Pharrell just posted this photo with the simple caption of "Having fun", which I interpret for musicians as making music. However, Tyler The Creator and Miley Cyrus are in this photo too, so "having fun" could mean a ton of different things. Whatever the case, this could make for an interesting collab. After all, didn't Tyler openly want to collab with Miley (and there was then Twitter communication? Aw shucks, it's hard to keep up sometimes!)
Haha @ this pic being a perfect representation for this track. J-Kwon responds to perceived disses from Pusha on "Only You Can Tell It" and Tyler & Odd Future on the "Rella" video with this new track "Pushing The Odds". Who knew?
Plus, 'Ye oddly named J-Kwon "Tipsy" as one of his favorite hip hop singles back in the day in the new NYT interview.
cause it was mine. he wanted to be on IFHY too! but i was like, nah hahaha. ye is soo awesome, i talk to him almost everyday it seems like. its cool to have someone you can level with about art and everything else.
Tyler also addressed a potential future Kanye West collab, on a track from a fake tracklist named "Hyper Critical". Turns out he's "actually not on it", so when will we see an actual 'Ye x Tyler collab?!
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).
