Tyler the Creator’s Goblin was my favorite album of 2011. Messy, weird, subversive; it’s everything that’s been missing from hip hop for years. And while none of the subsequent OF members’ records have capured that same fire (though Mellowhype’s BlackenedWhite came close), you can bet your ass I’m getting hype for Wolf. April 2 can’t come soon enough.

OFWGKTA. The closest thing to real punk rock this generation’s got.
