Organizing Chaos with Christian Clancy Part 1

Odd Future is a mystery wrapped in an enigma. They’re buzzing more than a building lobby, with a girlfriend inside of it trying to find her cheating boyfriend (you know what I’m talking about).

  1. This is such a great interview. He’s real enough to admit that he lost the kick ass love for music when he was banking, and still learning every day. Always good to stay open minded.

  2. Odd Future is the definition of the future of hip hop, the only thing I can’t believe is that one day another group is going to out do them

  3. Not only do they goto many sites to find an answer, they will call people, other countries, you name it, look at how Complex found Earl, perfect example.
