Critically writing about Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All is akin to taking an aluminum baseball bat to a dangling hornet's nest. You know the impending fallout of your actions, and yet despite that, here you are with an Easton in hand. The greatest hiphop ensemble since the Wu-Tang Clan is also the rapey-est, so your take on Tyler, the Creator & Co. likely hinges on how much you can stomach lines like: "I'ma change my name to Uncle Phil/'Cause every girl I deal and fuck it's always against her will." As Tegan and Sara are now well aware, OFWGKTA is unapologetically misogynistic and homophobic, an outfit unwilling to lyrically waver (or whatever their "hugging Elton John" equivalent is) despite outside pressure that will likely include some protesters lingering about the Roseland tonight. Their talent has never been in question—my OFWGKTA power rankings: 1. Earl Sweatshirt; 2. Frank Ocean; 3. Tyler, the Creator; 4. Tie, everyone else—the only real question left is how you justify (or don't) lyrics that take such pleasure in crossing the line. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
