Details

The Odd Future look, at once sinister and surreal (ski masks, garden gnomes as onstage props), has also helped to propel the group to stardom over the past year and define it as the face of a larger American youth movement of black skate hip hop culture. The Odd Future crew is made up of ten kids, most of whom met in high school or hanging out at L.A.'s Supreme store.

Tyler the Creator is the oldest, the ringleader and producer; the other main members include Domo Genesis, Left Brain, Mike G., Hodgy Beats, DJ Syd tha kid, photographer Brick Stowell and the often absent Earl Sweatshirt. Odd Future's stellar ascent has been driven in part by its strong internet identity, and the group's blog, full of photos, free mixtapes, homemade videos and strange collage mixtape designs, is an integral component of its creativity.

Created entirely by Odd Future members, Golf Wang expresses this unique aesthetic. It features their photography, designs and writings, in a scrapbook of raw and immediate and fun that offers a glimpse into the crossover worlds of skating and hip hop and the compelling style of one of hip hop's most electrifying and controversial acts.
