Tyler, The Creator plans to release his album Wolf tomorrow, and both the critics and fans are giving the Odd Future general his props on this one. The Sony distributed album is a proper follow up to his previous efforts Bastard and Goblin as we find Tyler in a more elevated creative space in terms of production and lyrical delivery.
While Odd Future videos have always been entertaining, Tyler also stepped up his game in the visual department. Watch below as he brings a Mattel themed nightmare to life in the visuals to the Pharrell featured "IFHY."
To hear how the rest of Wolf sounds before it hits stores tomorrow, stream the album in full after the jump!

I've been playing Toro y Moi at a lot of my gigs lately, and I'm glad that Tyler, The Creator who repeatedly confessed that he was a fan, finally got in the studio with the South Carolina singer and producer. Check out the smooth yet unfinished "Hey You" below, and be sure to hit the comments with your thoughts on the collab.

I guess I was hit with the itis too long this week and I let this Frank Ocean slip past me. He dropped off this short new track "4 Tears" on his Tumblr right after Christmas:

Looks like Lupe Fiasco, Pharrell & Tyler The Creator are cooking up something real nice for us! Last night, this photo surfaced on Lupe's blog and Tyler The Creator couldn't hide his enthusiasm about working with artists he's looked up to for years. Can't wait to hear the end product, and you know G.U.E. will have it as soon as it drops!

Atlanta had a busy night yesterday. Jay-Z and Kanye debuted their Watch The Throne tour, Wale was in town, and Odd Future had a big show. To make things crazier, OFWGKTA brought out Waka Flocka Flame who brought a ton of energy to the show. Check it out below as they performed Waka's "Karma!"
I have no clue what they were saying, so I just pretended every syllable was "BOW!"

OFWGKTA rapper Domo Genesis's got some new tracks for us to add to the collection with his new mixtape Under The Influence. I was really feeling "Benediction" so I have high hopes for this mixtape.
For those of you who are a little wary to listen to Odd Future artists-- don't discriminate on the whole clique just because you're not feeling one person. Odd Future seems to have something for everyone so try Domo out for size.

"Swim Good" was one of my late favorites from Nostalgia, Ultra. It got me through some really tough times. I'm glad to see that "Swim Good" has a video. Watch the Nabil directed video below:

Domo Genesis and some more of his Odd Future homies stopped by Shade 45 and dropped off his new track called "Benediction." I see all the time on the Internet that people think OFWGKTA can't really rap and that all they rely on is shock value. "Benediction" completely disproves this theory as he rhymes over Mobb Deep's "Hell On Earth."

New music from OFWGKTA crooner Frank Ocean. In my eyes, he can do no wrong after Nostalgia/ultra, which I haven't stopped listening to for months. Nice to hear Frank's range on this track, and I hope some more music leaks.
Rumor has it, Frank Ocean will be opening for the Watch the Throne tour this fall. I'm crossing my fingers.
Listen to/DL "Thinkin' Bout You" below:
Hit the jump to download his Nostalgia/ultra and to see his music video for his hit single "Novacane."
