Having served free music to the public with over 10 mixtapes at your dispense on their blog site oddfuture be sure to give every single a listen. A definite dope group that differentiates from the current music giving them a new rebel appeal just as the rock stars did back in the 70 and 80′s with the cult music movement. Always decked fresh in Supreme they deserve the respect for the hard work and creativity of dope put together. Be sure to grab a copy of GOBLIN on May 10, 2011 ! Kill em’ all.
