Odd Future.... Records ????




After months of being courted by the music industry’s biggest bosses, word on the street is Odd Future are staying independent with major backing. I hear the ink ain’t dry but Odd Future Records will sign withRED Distribution/Sony. All acts under one umbrella with the same creative freedom they have now. When pressed for confirmation, manager Chris Clancy sent this statement below.
“It’s based on getting the distribution deal we’ve always envisioned that allows the group to “sign  themselves” to their own company and keep their masters. They will have 100% creative control of all aspects of their music, art, and release schedule with no 3rd party participation in outside business. Freedom and ownership was the whole point. Red and Sony know that its in everyone’s best interest to maintain the group’s authenticity and control. They built it, they deserve it. There’s no cheesy hooks or fluorescent liquor product placements in the works..  It’s about to be fun.. and different.. “

UPDATE: We started working on this blog post awhile ago. Since then the deal is now official and It was rumored to be worth about 2.5 million dollars. Congrats to Odd Future ! Here's some recent footage of the crew on Big Boy's Neighborhood Radio show

Jay-Z's Roc Nation, Diddy's Bad Boy, & Steve Rifkin's SRC Records in bidding war for Odd Future



SHOUTOUT TO KEVIN S. GARY OF HIP HOP DX for this story !

Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator makes wild demands of execs looking to sign the Cali trouble makers.

With the hype surrounding the OFWGKTA (a/k/a Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) collective gaining momentum every day, MTV News is reporting that music executives are scrambling to sign the California emcees and begin monetizing their building buzz. While some of the individual members of the group have signed deals with labels, Odd Future itself remains unsigned. But that might not be the case much longer with people as high profile as Bad Boy Records founder and CEO Diddy and Roc Nation's Jay-Z getting involved in the bidding.

Diddy might have the inside track for now, having appeared at the South By Southwest festival with Odd Future. But Jay-Z shouldn’t count himself out just yet. Hodgy Beats was quoted by MTV News relating his admiration for the Brooklyn legend: "It was hard for me to look at Jay-Z for 10 minutes. Like, real shit, this is the godfather of music. I just shook his hand in his house. Honestly, it made me want to work harder. Jay-Z is amazing."

Another player who got involved in the Odd Future sweepstakes was SRC Records president Steve Rifkind. But in order to get a sit-down Rifkind was forced to meet a few of Tyler’s rather unique demands, which included “Randy’s Donuts, swivel chairs, and a megaphone.”

We've been staying on top of Odd Future since our very first post, delivering you good info and up to date news on the collective. We will continue to do so until we find out what label is the victor in this bidding war for ODD FUTURE !!!
