Tyler The Creator, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis & Earl Sweatshirt - "Look" (Nottz Raw)

When Odd Future first came out (2007), it seemed like they were pretty against working with an outside producers. But they've since slightly broadened their horizons, working with a handful of various producers: Kanye, Flying Lotus, Pharrell, James Pants, The Alchemist, RZA, BADBADNOTGOOD, Samiyam, and supposedly even MF DOOM. Late Tuesday night, without any prior notice, rhyme or reason, OFWGKTA uploaded "Look" to Soundcloud; It's produced by Nottz Raw, a Virginia-based beatsmith who's worked with everyone from Asher Roth to [The] Game. Tyler The Creator, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis & Earl Sweatshirt manage to utterly RIP apart Nottz's hard-hitting beat over the course of nearly 5 minutes. While it's chock-full of righteous-minded bars-on-bars, some of my personal favourite lines include: "Barnacles, now I gotta brag / [Beamer] drive right by you nig*as like I was kinda fat / with a paint job that's flatter than Miley Cyrus' ass" (Tyler) ... "Wolf pack back up out the shed, foaming at the mouth / Got these bitches lip-locking, britches soggy on the couch / Talking shit, bringing profit in and bodies in to count" (Earl). It's unclear where exactly "Look" will eventually end up re-appearing; But Nottz on the other hand, has produced a 6-track EP with enigmatic rapper Blu, Gods In The Spirit, which is slated for an Oct. 15th release on Coalmine Records.
