Rap collective opt for cheese gags and Twitter jokes in latest promo clips
Odd Future have posted two new preview clips for their forthcoming reality TV series Loiter Squad – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.
The first clip sees the rap collective in a skit called ‘Hashtag Court’, a Twitter-inspired joke in which every statement made by a character is preceded by the phrase ‘hashtag’, while the second preview simply features some crude visual humour about cheese.
‘Loiter Squad is set to premiere in the US on the cable channel Adult Swim on March 25, and is also expected to be made available to watch in the UK via Adultswim.co.uk shortly afterwards. The show will consist of 15-minute episodes, which will feature the group performing sketches, man on the street segments, playing pranks and performing some of their tracks.
It has been put together by Jackass producers Dickhouse Entertainment, which consists of Jackass stars Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine as well as director Spike Jonze.
Odd Future are also set to release their new album ‘OF Tapes Vol 2’ on March 19. Although the album will feature new material from the likes of Tyler, The Creator, Frank Ocean, Hodgy Beats, Left Brain and The Internet, it appears that rapper Earl Sweatshirt, who recently reunited with the group, will not be involved as he is not mentioned in any of the LP’s tracklisting.
Last week, it was revealed that Odd Future are working with Kanye West on new material. The studio hook-up was documented in a series of pictures posted on their official blog, Golfwang.tumblr.com, with key members Tyler, The Creator and Frank Ocean both pictured.
Odd Future will play a handful of tour dates in the UK and Ireland next month. The gigs kick off Birmingham’s O2 Academy on March 28, and end on April 2 at Dublin Olympia. The run also includes shows in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
