Some savvy listeners may already have their hands on the leaked version of Tyler, The Creator's upcoming album Wolf, but for the legal-oriented folks out there the LP is up on SoundCloud to stream in full. Tyler has brought on a good amount of guest talent for this one, including Odd Future members Frank Ocean, Domo Genesis, Left Brain, Hodgy Beats and Earl Sweatshirt along with Erykah Badu, Pharrell and more. Check it out below (via Odd Future's Tumblr).
Never short of fucked up, weird ideas, Tyler, The Creator enters the body of a Ken doll in his video for "IFHY". His creepy plastic face and blank stare is enough to churn the toughest of stomachs. The final minute shifts focus to Hodgy Beats and Tyler driving around the suburbs, running over dolls and rapping to another Wolf cut titled "Jamba". Check out the two-part clip above.
Earl Sweatshirt goes back to the old Odd Future vibes in his video for "Whoa", a new track from his upcoming album Doris. Directed by and featuring Tyler, The Creator, the clip sees the OF crew skateboarding, causing trouble and just being the shitheads we came to know them as. Check it out above and grab a digital copy of "Whoa" on iTunes.
Almost exactly two years ago, Odd Future made their television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. This was back when OFWGKTA was blowing up, and it was one of the most memorable late-night performances in recent memory. Last night, Tyler, The Creator paid Jimmy a long overdue visit to promote his new album Wolf.
During his visit, Tyler debuted a brand new track titled "Treehome95", which saw him skillfully navigating a grand piano as Coco Maja Hastrup Karshøj of the Danish duo Quadron delivered some stunning vocals. This led quickly into Tyler's already released single "Domo 23", with Domo Genesis joining him on stage for an awesome, energetic performance. Apparently Tyler didn't think so. Check it out below.
Tyler, The Creator offered up a slew of goodies this week, all to do with his new solo album Wolf. First up is the video for the lead single "Domo 23", which enters the wrestling ring for an all-out brawl between Tyler and Domo Genesis. Earl Sweatshirt referees, Tyler gets his ass kicked by a fat luchador and Domo busts weed in the red corner. Apparently Tyler was nervous about how people would react, taking to Twitter in his all caps way:
I WANT BUSTA AND MISSY TO HEAR IT REALLY. I'M SO NERVOUS WHAT IF EVERYONE HATE IT AND I GO BROK FUCK AHHH... THE FAD IS OVER AND I GOTTA WORK AT SOMEWHERE LIKE THESE REGULAR NIGGAS AHHH NO IM SHAKING."
Continuing the Wolf promotion, Tyler posted three alternate covers for the album. All of them are awesome, but I'll let you decide on your favorite. Check them out after the jump, along with Tyler's recently announced tour dates.

Tyler, The Creator normally doesn't hype anyone up or show them any love on his infamous Twitter account, but he always has kind words for Toro Y Moi. It makes complete sense, then, that the two have teamed up for a collaborative track titled "Hey You". The song is apparently unfinished, but these days music leaks all the time, and Tyler and Toro don't mind; the two have shrugged off the leak and put out the song anyways on the Odd Future tumblr. Stream and download the song below.
Earlier this week Frank Ocean surprise dropped his major label debut, Channel Orange, much to the delight of his fans. Today, though, a track that doesn't appear on the iTunes version has hit the net, and it features Odd Future head honcho, Tyler, The Creator. Titled "Golden Girl," you can hear the track below via Hypetrak/hustleGRL. You can pick up a physical copy of Channel Orange next week on July 17th when it's released. If you want a digital copy, it's available on iTunes now.
If you missed it on Monday too, check out Frank's great performance of "Bad Religion" on Fallon here.
We've seen some pretty interesting videos from the Odd Future camp over the last year or so. "NY (Ned Flander)" and "Rella" were more that a little odd. Today comes the next visual project from Wolf Haley and the gang in the shape of a visual for the Tyler and Domo's track "Sam Is Dead" which featured on The Odd Future Mixtape Vol. 2. The video sees the usual suspects of Lucas, Tyler himself, Domo, Lee from Trash Talk makes an appearance along with a few others too. The pretty entertaining video can be seen at the top.
