Tyler, the Creator hints at Odd Future split
May 27, 2015 11:57pm | Fact Magazine

The Odd Future co-founder implies that the group has parted ways.

Tyler, the Creator took to Twitter tonight to reminisce on the past five years. During his moment of reflection, the Odd Future co-founder implied that his collective was no more.

Tyler tweeted “although its no more, those 7 letters are forever,” in the middle of his nostalgia trip before continuing to look back on his early years with the group. Those seven letters most likely refer to OFWGKTA.

Tyler’s fourth solo album, Cherry Bombwas released in April. [via Billboard]

May 27, 2015 11:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Chris Gethard Show Premiere Party w/ Screaming Females, Hiccup, Mal Blum @ Rough Trade
BrooklynVegan is excited to be presenting this show, which is the premiere party for comedian Chris Gethard's debut on cable TV. HIs show, formerly on public access, will now be on cable network Fusion, and at Rough Trade tonight the first episode will be screened. Additionally there's music from his talented friends, including NJ shredders Screaming Females, Bomb the Music Industry frontman-turned-solo artist Jeff Rosenstock, singer/songwriter Mal Blum, and Hiccup who include Unlovables singer Hallie Bulliet, who's also a member of The Chris Gethard Show's house band. To get in you needed to RSVP (which is now closed), but even with RSVP admission is first come, first served. Get there early!

Neil Hagerty (of Royal Trux), PC Worship, Sore Eros @ Baby's All Right

Tyler the Creator says Odd Future is
May 27, 2015 9:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, and Frank Ocean came up together as part of the hip-hop collective Odd Future. But as each member experienced success in his respective solo career, the activities of the group began to wane. Now, Tyler has seemingly confirmed the end of Odd Future via a series of tweets to fans.

Following a few nostalgic postings about Odd Future, Tyler tweeted, “Although its no more, those 7 letters are forever.” The MC did not outright confirm the group’s demise, but presumably those “seven letters” are a reference to OFWGKTA, the initials for Odd Future’s full name (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All).

Kanye West settles lawsuit over
May 27, 2015 7:11pm | Fact Magazine

A lawsuit over the Yeezus single has reached a settlement.

Ricky Spicer, a member of former soul group Ponderosa Twins Plus One, sued Kanye West, Roc-A-Fella Records, Universal Music Group and Island Def Jam Music Group in December 2013 for using the group’s 1971 song ‘Bound’ without permission.

Billboard reports that on May 11, paperwork (dated March 6) was filed to New York court discontinuing Spicer’s suit.

In 2013, Spicer claimed that he had not received any compensation for the sample despite the song’s success. The singer was seeking an injunction as well as damages for alleged violations of New York civil right of publicity law (section 51), unjust enrichment and common law copyright infringement.

Spicer’s voice can be heard in the song’s chorus as he sings ‘Bound, bound/ Bound to fall in love’. You can hear the original song below.

Earlier this month, ‘Bound 2′ was reimagined as a children’s book. [via Billboard]

Bono Impersonator Gets To Sing Onstage With U2
May 27, 2015 5:55pm | StereoGum
UPDATE: An attendee tells us the iPhone was part of the show. Fake Bono was directed by Bono to hold the phone, and it was broadcast on a venue screen that's not visible in this video. As commenter Matthew points out, it's still tacky, but not this guy's fault. Mea culpa! … More »

U2 aren't have the best of luck pulling people up on stage to sing with them during their new tour. A few nights ago, someone in Phoenix wouldn't get off the stage and, last night in Los Angeles, a Bono impersonator wouldn't put away his phone while he got to sing with the band. More »
