Odd Future‘s key members Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt have addressed rumours of the band’s breakup.

Fans grew concerned on Wednesday (May 27) when Tyler tweeted that “although its no more, those 7 letters are forever”. It is unclear whether he was referring to a T-shirt emblazoned with the word ‘Cheetah’ mentioned in the previous tweet, or the band’s full title ‘OFWGKTA’.

Later, however, Earl Sweatshirt said Tyler had been “solidifying the obvious”, reigniting rumours of the band’s demise.
