As of lately , the internet and indy music channels have been overrun by OF ( or more elaborately known as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All ). They rap about every thing from rape , murder to dancing with the devil and killing cops. I knew about them before they got popular because I skate, just wanted to know if yall cared ....
"He isn't off beat, "
That's what I meant, his lyrics land where a text book rappers lyrics would land.
Often rhyming at the end of the bar, of course his lyrics aren't always like that Earl is actually pretty dope with how he strings his multi's along and writes his punchlines. Actually I'd go as far as saying that the way he writes and delivers his raps aren't exactly "Text Book", either way he's a sound rapper.
On topic though they aren't the first Horrorcore rappers I mean there are plenty.
Brotha Lynch Hung
ICP ( unfortunately they're pretty wack.....)
And more if you're willing to look, with that said being "New" doesn't equate to being dope and they actually are pretty dope at least in my opinion, despite rapping about things that aren't exactly new to the Sub genre.
Domo = Does Not Do Horrorcore
MellowHype,Tyler The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt = Horrocore
Also Frank Ocean,The Internets, Future Jet Age Of Tomorrow = Not Rappers and Do Not Make Hip Hop. So if people are confused on the collective educate yourself.
What does "his stuff rhymes where it should" mean? All the lines are supposed to rhyme. It's one thing to take poetic license it's another when your vocabulary and skill are so limited you can't come up with a rhyme.
A "B-Boy" is basically a break dancer.
Or if you're an old head a catch all phrase for someone that's "Down for The Culture".
*Everything after these two sentences is not aimed at the person I quoted*
Anyways OF is dope.
They write their own stuff, they produce their own stuff, they film their own stuff.
Tyler ? ill rapper, nice concepts, shoots his videos (or writes the treatments) kid is ill.
Earl ? DOPE RAPPER, you don't have to like him but he's factually sound in the skill of rapping.
He isn't off beat, all of his stuff rhymes where it should (heavy eminem inspiration), plus he's clever.
That's just two people out of the entire collective. They aren't ALL RAPPERS.
Frank Ocean is an ill singer/song writer that's pretty damn dope.
Future Jet Age of Tomorrow does instrumental Albums that seem to be influenced that whole techno sound.
The Internets has a big Pop sound to them.
And there are more people in the collective I could bring up but it's best to educate yourself so you don't come off as a hater when you say "I get bored of them like all rap herp derp".

my nigga. You always have some funny shit.
sorta off topic, but some of yall (Darknesses) need to lay off the steroids. Calm down. Its just music.
I doubt ICP take themselves that seriously.
Nas and Pusha T deal with them cats because their careers are over and they are trying to regain relevance. I'm gonna take it way back. Those Odd Future cats are Sucker Emcees!! All swag and no talent means I'll be banging Tyler, Frank, and Earl's moms in 18 months for a knock off Coach bags when them cat's are broke and have faded into the crowd dipshits they came from.
Hmm I don't particularly listen to them regularly.
See, I don't understand the appeal of Earl Sweatshirt at all!!!
