Odd Future are getting by on the fact that there is a large demographic of hipsters polluting rap music at the moment. They won't get 10 years out of their careers. Pusha must be doing something right.

haha right because it wasn't the collective effort of the pitchfork hipster base that revitalized pusha's career. A career that really only has pharells production to show for it.

Dude gets by because he looks cool, he's extremely limited

You act like that's a bad thing though. His flow works for him and he has the lyrical prowess to pull it off.

no doubt and i like pusha a lot, numbers on the boards bangs.

I just took offence to showcasing pusha over earl. Pusha, "you hear the egchk and you know its me" lol. He says egchk in like every verse.

pusha t taught me everythin there is to know about coke slang lol

like him way more than early


actully thought early was gonna separate himself talent wise from odd future when i first heard him a few yrs back. i know there was that thing where he was livin in somalio or some place weird like samoa or whatever cause his mom mad ehim i think. but my point is that as of today i dont think he is gonna separate much from the other guys

Yeah, he's got a spark about him. No doubt. But he needs to separate himself from Tyler the Creator who's just holding him back.
EARL needs to break away and write his own stuff, none of this raping, or setting things on fire or golfwang bullshit. He's got a good flow and understands rhyme structure, he just needs someone behind him that'll let him grow as an artist than someone as immature as Tyler who restricts him and is a negative influence on him.

Aside from Tyler, who I'll give him his props is a decent producer, and Frank Ocean everyone other than EARL in OF is completely useless so EARL associating himself with them is giving him no dividends. I reckon if he cuts ties with the lot of them, moves away from being Tyler the Creator's wingman and gets a production team/co-writers of decent level behind him, he can be a pretty good MC.

Earl's outright said that he's not going to include the old rape & pillage lyrics in his tracks any more and everything he's released from Doris so far doesn't include it so I guess your wish is granted.

I'm glad for that, I actually really enjoyed his song "Chum", enough so to edit my "Best of 2012" mix to include it, so I'm glad he's growing up as an artist.

I mean his record EARL showed glimpses of potential, but the contrived content and the constant interference of Tyler dampened it for me.
I don't wanna hear all that bullshit about fictitious rapes from someone who was like 16 at the time, that's clearly Tyler's influence. But you can hear this nigga can actually rap he just needs to figure out what he's gonna rap about. All of Odd Future do.

Dont get it twisted i do like Earl but there is something about him that dosnt let me like him as much as i could. And i do think its the affiliation with OF. I do feel it holds him back in a sense. I mean now with Dorris he seems to have steered away, but there is still something about it.
