The RZA—and maybe even GZA — of Odd Future (short for Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) Tyler, the Creator is the alternative hip-hop crew's main rapper, producer, and source of inspiration. He got his first taste of fame when The Los Angeles Times ran a "teen on the street"-type story on the then 16-year-old skateboarding enthusiast, who was also interested in music and fashion.  In 2007 he began making music with Odd Future's core members —Earl Sweatshirt, Left Brain, and Hodgy Beats — and by the summer of 2010 their vivid and surreal material had earned them a loyal following. It was during that year that a video Tyler directed for the Odd Future track "French" took off, topping a million views by December and drawing attention to the slew of crew-related mixtapes that followed, including Tyler's own, ‘Bastard’. He was signed to the XL label in 2010 for a one-album deal. When Tyler's XL album ‘Goblin’ arrived in 2011, it became the first Odd Future-related product to be released through the usual music industry channels. ‘Wolf’ followed in 2013, with Left Brain and Frank Ocean returning as guests.
