After my failed attempt to see the Kids Of Grime x Y’OH exhibition at Pure Evil Gallery because of a street party, I casually encountered Left Brain, from Odd Future, casually chilling in Shoreditch before the show at Village Underground.
Left Brain is a real quiet and humble dude, considering he’s a member of the most outspoken and controversial Rap group to hit Hip Hop and Popular Culture since N.W.A. Left Brain expressed his excitement to be travelling to Amsterdam after Village Underground and his love for posh British women in frilly top socks. Also Left Brain mentioned his visit to the capital last november, and his fondness for the British ladies.
MellowHype is a alternative hip hop duo of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain from the collective OFWGKTA. They have released two albums, YelloWhite and BlackenedWhite, both of which are available for free download from the Odd Future website. On February 16th, 2011, Hodgy Beats (along with Tyler the Creator) performed the song “Sandwitches” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. A remastered version of BlackenedWhite will be released summer 2011 by Fat Possum Records.
Here’s the trailer to their YelloWhite tape
