    OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), more commonly referred to as Odd Future, made a huge splash in the rap world when they burst onto the scene in late 2009 with crew leader Tyler, the Creator's critically-acclaimed Bastard mixtape. Bringing dark, lo-fi sonics, even darker lyrics and off-kilter humor to the table, the rest of the crew would soon follow him into the limelight.

His official debut album, DORIS, has been extremely well-received, and has given him the opportunity to plan an ambitious world tour in support of it.

    Charts Don't Lie: September 1

    We see two new entries when it comes to hip-hop on Charts Don't Lie this week. They belong to Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and A$AP Mob's A$AP Ferg. While both rappers moved respectable amounts, it gives us a moment to think about the whole ideas of crews in hip-hop, and how no matter what, there is always one rap leader who has to make an impression on the audience first. For OF, this is Tyler, The Creator, for A$AP Mob it's Rocky. Following their rise in popularity, they try to put on their friends, as rappers tend to do-- sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

    Earl Sweatshirt has seen a lot of growth in his career since his mom sent him all the way to Samoa for reform school, just a few months prior to which his debut mixtape Earl dropped and the OF member started to develop a following. Since the rapper has returned to the United States a year ago, he's drummed up anticipation for his latest release, Doris, which shows a different side of the artist and a more mature Earl.

    Tyler, The Creator has definitely created a crazy persona for himself. Whether it's his raps, his style, or his tweets, Tyler knows how to get people riled up (including himself). It makes us wonder whether Tyler is that way 24/7, or whether he calms down when he's not in the public eye. His personality is very much on the opposite spectrum of r'n'b crooner Frank Ocean, who gives off a much more mellow vibe.
