The Wolf Gang got taken down by the pigs last night. And not for the first time (what’s so wrong about a roof chase and a riot?). The fine gentlemen of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All were rapping to a packed venue in Boston when the club owner forced them off the stage; an Odd crew member got arrested for something outside and the po’lice stomped the dirty foot of the law down on the rest of the show. To intense booing from the angsty audience, Tyler, The Creator eased the situation, “So you guys don’t think we’re dicks, I was ’bout to finish this song ’cause y’all paid money, but the promoter cut us off… The police are right there.” Meanwhile, the cops can’t shut down the OFWGKTA sweatshop in NYC.

The Odd Future popped up shop on the LES on 3/20 to launch their new album The OF Tape. But Tyler, The Creator wants you to know he does more than rap. He makes really shitty shirts. “Reality: this shirt is stupid as fuck. It’s ugly. It’s tacky. People like this shit. I’m excited.” Cats, donuts, hot air balloons – he’s got a point. Yet he managed to make that ugly pretty fucking cool. See for yourself:
Are you a part of the Odd Future? Join the sweatshop (not the Alexander Wang kind) at the Reed Space on Orchard St. Open till 3/30.
