VIDEO: Odd Future – Oldie

March 20th, 2012 | | | 2731 views by

Following through on their promise of “a trio of videos” preceding the release of The OF Tape, Vol. 2, Odd Future brings us the visual for ‘Oldie.’ A 10-minute epic of a video filmed by Lance Bangs during a photoshoot, this video features all of the members including Frank Ocean and the prodigal son, Earl Sweatshirt. While this video isn’t nearly as outlandish as ‘Rella’ and ‘NY (Ned Flander)’ (don’t worry, we miss Domo’s gheri curl, too) it’s a great opportunity to see all of the members in action and styled out while going in over this beat with an old school vibe. And apparently the Odd Future crew liked it too with this explanation posted below the video, “At A Photoshoot, We Said Our Verses Into A Camera While This Song Was Playing In The Background. Why Not Release it.”

While this video clocks in at more than 10 minutes, there’s something we enjoy about ensemble tracks like this where every members gets a chance to shine. It reminds us quite a bit of the eight-minute monster ‘Bring It On’ that featured Hosuton’s The Geto Boys and the entire Rap-A-Lot Records family from their Til Death Do Us Part album from the ’90s. Not ringing a bell? Put down your 2Chainz album and get familiar right here son.
