Odd Future

Hip-hop's wildest band of punk outsiders – led by twisted mastermind Tyler the Creator, fan favorite Earl Sweatshirt and crooner Frank Ocean, among others – broke out to the mainstream in 2011 with a slew of anarchic performances at SXSW and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. They're bigger than ever in 2012 with the release of Ocean's critically acclaimed major-label debut, Channel Orange, and a new album on the way from Tyler.
