Last night, Odd Future swagged The Echo out mightily with a homecoming of sorts — the rising L.A. rap crew's first big in-town show following sold-out gigs in New York and London.
This one too was at (or beyond) capacity with a mix of true fans and lookie-loos, but all seemed swayed by the night's end.
Perhaps it was Tyler the Creator's charisma and stage-diving prowess. Or Mellowhype's heavy beats and smooth raps. Or Mike G's impossibly pimped out rhymes. Or, quite possibly, the massive crew/crowd rap-along to “EARL” by missing OFWGKTA member Earl Sweatshirt.
More likely it was all of it, and thanks to YouTube user Moviebruin, you can relive some of the highlights below. Free Earl. SWAG.
