Young N*gga – “Come Threw Looking Clean”

Yesterday, Cali Hip-Hop collective Odd Future announced that they had signed a new artist to their Odd Future Records imprint by the name of Young N*gga.

News of the signing surprised many OFWGKTA fans, due to previous reports that the group would not look to sign any new acts, after landing a label deal with Sony’s RED Distribution in April.

“While our original intent was not to sign anyone to the label we simply could not pass up the opportunity to sign somebody this talented,” Odd Future said in a statement released through their publicist on Friday.

Also on Friday the group released Young N*gga’s official first single, “Come Threw Looking Clean,” and stated his debut album EXPENSIVE PASTA is coming soon.

After listening to the single and viewing the artwork, it doesn’t take the smartest man in the world to see that Tyler, The Creator and Odd Future are having a little fun with this Young N*gga character.

If you look and listen, you’ll see that Young N*gga is actually Odd Future front man Tyler, The Creator.

Here’s what Tyler tweeted after releasing the song on Friday:

And he’s right. We can’t fault Tyler and OF for being kids, pranking the media and fans, and just having fun.
