    I don't think they are trying to be progressive lyrically, they are just kids who get a kick out of saying dirty words (Tyler's favorite rapper is Waka Flocka Flame...). They are really just making the music that they want to hear, and what is the most fun for them. Not to mention that they are talented as balls. But understandably, it's not everyone's plate of bacon.

    I don't know. I'm not in their head. But it's clearly anger issues with at least Tyler. And even then it's not ALL. It's a part. If you don't let that part distract you can get a lot out of his work. But if you have deep issues with it then I could see how it could turn you off. And I have no problem with that, rape is a sensitive issue. It almost turned me off completely to OFWGKTA until I heard Bastard

    You shouldn't need to have deep, personal issues with rape to feel uncomfortable about the fact that a group is growing widely popular because of the fact that they rap about rape. (Or, despite the fact that they rap about rape).

    I get that they are young. And yes, talented. I just hope that they use their talent in a progressive way as they get older, rather than continuing to rely on the shock value of dirtiness. Because you have to admit, the shtick will get old.

    I've just became a fan the past 2 weeks or so but my friends have been fans for months and it's not even about the rape to them. They like Domo's Rolling Papers album the best.

    And maybe if I was a parent with a kid maybe I understand. But when they talk about putting Taylor Swift in a basement and raping her I can go in my head like "hey they're not really gonna do that".

    Best tweets I saw tonight were from @stopbeingfamous

    odd future will be the soundtrack 4 the formlessness to come, a responding fist to Orange alerts, mass hypnosis, & millenium void

    And for older people who don't like the negative in odd future, realize that they learned it from you.

    This makes me sad. It's not about the rape these days. It's all about fame and fortune and what's "in."

    I weep for the future.

    They've said repeatedly that they want to sell out as soon as possible. I'm guessing that means a different direction for the better or the worse (if they even get that far).

    FTR I also find the rape content to be the most unsettling thing about Odd Future, I still cringe every time I hear certain parts of Assmilk. I just think that there is so much more than that.

    This is a dangerous statement, dude. I don't want to be a total wet blanket here, because I do not mean to insult this group's fans or talent based on the fact that rape is a subject matter of their "art," but to dismiss it something that wouldn't actually happen justifies the concept that rape can be viewed, digested, and consumed as an abstract non-reality. When in fact, it is an unfortunate reality.

    Well I don't know what to say. I hate the rape (even let it known in the 1st few pages of this thread) but outside of that they make music I like. So I can't just say they rapped about rape in a few songs that I don't play so I can't enjoy their other songs. Probably just desensitization I suppose. But not one rape lyric have I enjoyed especially from Earl cause that guy goes in detail. I just don't put that stigma on their whole discography.

    This is the type of abstracted insensitivity I'm talking about. Seriously? I never, ever, claimed that rape happens as a direct result of this group rapping about rape. That would be a ridiculous claim. But your response suggests that you willingly choose not to acknowledge the reality of rape or its potential link between performative, violently encouraged utterances by rap groups such as these guys. Fuck you, dude. A 15 year old girl was gang raped at her highschool here in the Bay Area during a homecoming dance while at least 10 people watched and did nothing to stop it. Again, to clarify, I am not suggesting that Odd Future & Co had or has anything to do with any actual rapes anywhere. All I am saying is that if it doesn't make you cringe or stop to think when they DO encouragingly rap about rape, maybe you need to take a step back and think about why that is.

    Now get back to your unabashed swaggage, fans.

    i recently realized just how misogynistic all of the franz kafka's characters were. it made me feel odd. should i look into my beloved author's biography and see if those protagonists reflected their creator's beliefs? should i think about it "just being the times," and that he was merely writing into a patriarchal culture? should i reflect on my own beliefs and see if i'm not shocked enough by these stories?

    all valid reactions that lead to fruitful criticism. the same things you guys are doing with ofwgkta.

    oh fuck it, nevermind....i'll just keep watching tyler eat gregor samsa
