Odd Future destroys 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'

Tyler the Creator, of the sprawling and self-mythologizing L.A. crew Odd Future, just inked an enviable deal with the indie-vanguard label XL, and this feral performance on Wednesday night's episode of "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" shows what teenage rap fans in town have insisted on for months. Namely, that Odd Future is absolutely insane and the unchallenged heirs to SoCal's mantle of menacing wierdo rap. This take on "Sandwitches," the B-side to Tyler the Creator's new single "Yonkers," gets a full band assist from Odd Future cohort Hodgy Beats as well as the Roots. Tyler mounts Fallon at the credits and leaves a dumbstruck Mos Def screaming, "Swag!" into the camera for no reason other than total joy. This video pushes Odd Future to the top of any Coachella-goer's must-see list.
