Added namespaces.
Tyler's chiefly influenced by horror films and the slick electro funk of The Neptunes, and it shows. A sizable portion of Tyler's output is autobiographical, referencing his [[ParentalAbandonment missing father]], [[DidNotGetTheGirl being used in a rebound relationship]] and his confessional thoughts on his own life. The rest of his work incorporates elaborate storytelling scenarios involving tales of rape, murder and substance abuse. The latter part has gotten him in trouble with advocacy groups and the press, with no help from Tyler's tell-it-like-it-is demeanour and general wackiness. He famously told lesbian rock band TeganAndSara to [[YouNeedToGetLaid call him if they needed "some hard dick]]" after they called him out on his language. Tyler went on record early in 2012 to say that the latter elements of his style no longer interest him.

* {{Angrish}}/DiggingYourselfDeeper: Tyler's default mode in interviews and the like, when it comes to being called homophobic, racist and/or misogynist. In a few early interviews, he stated that he writes some of his songs in character. Instead of repeating these sentiments and stamping out any feelings of ill will when his lyrics comes under fire, Tyler lashes out further. He famously told TeganAndSara to [[YouNeedToGetLaid call him if they needed "some hard dick]]" after they complained about his lyrics and, during a June 2013 concert, called out a feminist protestor (who organized a campaign to have Tyler banned from Australia for his lyrics) at an Australian venue by shouting, "Fucking bitch, I wish she could hear me call her a bitch, too, fucking whore. Yeah, I got a sold-out show right now bitch. Hey this fucking song is dedicated to you, you fucking cunt."

* SesameStreetCred: Tyler provided raps for a one-off character in the ''RegularShow'' episode "Rap it Up." (Tyler named the character in question "Blitz Comet," a play on his alter ego Wolf Haley.)

moved trivia items
* PromotedFanboy: Tyler has met, worked, and performed with many of the artists he has mentioned as his favorites in songs and interviews. Most notably Music/WakaFlockaFlame and Pusha T as mentioned in his song Goblin.

* StreisandEffect: The main reason why anyone knows of brandUn [=DeShay=] is because Tyler fell out with him and mentioned beating him up in "Yonkers".

* OneOfUs: "Memorex [=CDs=]" samples a song from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''.

* CreatorBacklash: He's embarrassed by his old horrorcore output and has openly stated that he does not want to keep the fans who were only there for that material. To quote him, "I hope I lose you as a fan if you only fuck with me because I rapped about raping girls when I was fifteen."

* ExecutiveMeddling: His mother will not authorize any of his songs to be released so long as he is a minor.

* OldShame: His stay in Samoa helped him to look at the subject matter he previously rapped about [[HarsherInHindsight in a different light,]] having spent time working with surviving rape and trauma victims. That, and his lyrical abilities have grown tremendously since then, and one of the first things he made clear upon his return was that he cannot stand to hear anything he put out before ''Radicals''.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Everyone in the group raps about rape, misogyny and murder, no expections. Fact of the matter is, Tyler and Earl are the only ones who do so and even then, a lot of Tyler's songs have nothing to do with evil (see Horrorcore, below.) Odd Future are apparently all [[RockMeAsmodeus devil worshippers]], but several of them are [[{{Atheism}} atheist]] (or don't care about spirituality) and they only actively use anti-Christian imagery and lyrics to piss people off. --> '''Tyler, from "Goblin"''': "'Oh that's a triple three six, isn't he a devil worshipper 'cause I'm too fuckin' ignorant to do some research?"

not sure if they're fully 100% officially disbanded

The main members were Tyler, the Creator (the de facto leader), Hodgy Beats, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis, Mike G, Frank Ocean, Left Brain, Matt Martians, Syd tha Kyd, Jasper "Dolphin" Loc and Taco Bennett. The group itself consisted not only of hip hop and R&B artists but also skaters and other traditional artists; Tyler has given an estimate of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 60 members total]], all ranging in age from 17 to 25 at the group's formation. There were multiple groups inside the collective: [=MellowHype=] (rapper Hodgy Beats and producer Left Brain); [=EarlWolf=] (Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, the Creator); The Jet Age of Tomorrow (producers Matt Martians and Hal Williams); The Internet (Syd tha Kyd and Matt Martians); The Super 3 (Matt Martians and others, see below) and I Smell Panties (Jasper Dolphin and Tyler, the Creator). The group's net-based promotion has also produced a staggering amount of individual tracks, including an R&B parody song called "Love in Da Mall" by T.T.D.D. (Tyler, Taco, [=DeVon=] (Jasper) and Domo Genesis) and a parody of Lil B by Young Nigga ([[spoiler:aka Tyler in a wig]]) called "Come Threw Looking Clean".

Frank Ocean is an R&B singer-songwriter originally from Louisiana who began writing music professionally in 2005 under his birth name of Christopher Breaux (aka Lonny Breaux.) His records focus mainly on interpersonal relationships, personal reflection and social commentary. He met Odd Future and Tricky Stewart in 2009 through his business connections, the latter of which got him signed to Def Jam. When Def Jam would not release ''nostalgia, ULTRA.'', he released it as part of Odd Future's label online, generating considerable interest in Ocean's talents. Some of his clients include KanyeWest and Music/JayZ (who featured him on their collab album ''Watch the Throne''), {{Beyonce}} (whose song "I Miss You" was written by him), Music/JustinBieber, John Legend and Brandy. Ocean also is proficient in rapping and has done so on some Odd Future songs. Several fans didn't notice that the first verse on Tyler's "She" was him rapping, for instance.
