Yesterday, we reported on the vague tweets from Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator that seemed to suggest the rowdy Los Angeles crew has split apart. Adding to the dogpile of speculation is Wolf Gang standout Earl Sweatshirt, and it looks like the young rhyme slinger might have thrown a dart or two.
Earl Sweatshirt’s tweets were obviously aimed at the rabid Odd Future fanbase, and the outspoken wordsmith didn’t mince any words.
“[N]o sympathy for male virgins who’re in their feelings about tyler pointing out and solidifying the obvious,” tweeted Earl Thursday night (May 28).
He added, “TO ALL ODD FUTURE RUNOFF: SAVE YOURSELF YEARS OF EMBARRASSMENT AND STOP DRESSING LIKE AN EASTER BASKET, GO TALK TO SOME B*TCHES! TRUSMEDADY.”
Since Earl returned home from a remote boarding school, OFWGKTA appeared poised to continue its meteoric rise to stardom. Earl and Tyler, both prodigies in their own right, took different sonic directions with their respective solo outings which added to whispers of a breakup.
However, the pair maintained they were friends and even continued collaborating with one another but a divide of sorts seemed apparent. Adding to the fact that OF colleague Frank Ocean had become a breakout star, it didn’t appear that the crew was going away anytime soon.
Tyler’s tweets from earlier in the week seemed to be the ventings of a young man who missed his friends and musical compatriots, although the “no more” tweet didn’t have anything following it up at the time. Earlier Thursday, Tyler seemed to clear up his tweets but went with the mysterious once more.
“ALL I WAS DOING WAS LOOKING AT OLD PHOTOS WITH FRIENDS AND THINKING ABOUT HOW TIME FLIES, CRAZY HOW ONE TWEET CAN STIR SO MUCH,” said Tyler. He went on to add that there was an “elephant” that was “big as f*ck” in the room.
So if Odd Future over or nah? What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
