Thanks to Luis at Amoeba San Francisco for this week's top five, which finds in the number one position the ever outspoken, no holds barred 20 year old Tyler The Creator of LA's much hyped collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (aka OFWFKTA) with the major label follow up to his attention grabbing debut two years ago. As this website so accurately writes of this new release: "He goes all in for riveting rap polemics—misogyny, tomfoolery, psychiatric ranting, and general anti-PC entropy—but his one constant is simply thought provocation. The spitter of alt hip-hop act OFWGKTA dropped his basement recording Bastard in late 2009 like lyrical shrapnel, a shrink chair diatribe that endeared itself to lovers of cerebral rap. That one went boom. His major label debut Goblin magnifies in intensity and raw verbiage, and if you don’t believe it, check out the video of the single "Yonkers" and prepare to have your cage rattled." The video for "Yonkers" -- currently at almost 10 million YouTube views is immediately below.
