Odd Future, welcome to Austin, Texas!
Right off the bat, Tyler, bacon, you love bacon. Why do you love bacon?
T: I don’t know. Bacon is the fucking greatest thing ever.
H: I know. You can put syrup on it and you can eat it with bread.
T: And whipped cream if you’re kinky.
And now I have something special for you, Tyler and Hodgy, a gift I have for you, some bacon… [hands Tyler soap]
T: Soap! Goddamn! Nigga, it smells like bacon! Goddamn, nigga, bacon soap on a bitch nigga! Black, fat bitches about to be on my dick. Pork rinds and shit, nigga!
So bacon gets you pretty excited but also skating with Jason Dill, that gets you excited right?
T: Yeah, that’s my nigga. He’s awesome.
And he shot a video, the video for Skate, the video game, in Vancouver, B.C., where I’m from. So I thought I’d give you guys a gift from the legendary skating company in Vancouver, Skull Skates. [hands Tyler a hat]
Could you please tell us, is your mom half-Canadian?
T: Yeah, what the fuck? How do you know this shit? Yeah, my mom’s mixed. Oh shit. What the fuck? You with the feds, nigga?
Odd Future, here you are in Austin, Texas. Did you bring any merch with you guys at all?
T: Not this time.
I have some suggestions for merch for you guys. Right off the bat, there was a band in the 1990s called The Drags who had their own barf bags. [hand Tyler a Drags barf bag] What do you think about Odd Future barf bags?
H: Wait, it just doesn’t feel right. [pretends to shit in the bag]
So Odd Future, shitbags then?

T: He was the best rapper at the age of 16 also.
Nobody can compare to him, nobody.
T: Not anyone.

Fuck Steve Harvey. What about the other Kings of Comedy? Like Bernie Mac? Cedric The Entertainer?
T: Bernie Mac is one of the fucking greatest. And he’s one of the only people that died that I was like, “Oh shit. That sucks.” He’s awesome.
You’re down with Soulja Boy. You’ve talked to him before, haven’t you? Has he told you anything about Kat Stacks? Has Kat Stacks come after the Odd Future at all?
T: Dude, I want to fuck her so bad. I want to be on that list of rappers that fucked her so bad. Kat Stacks, return my calls, bitch.
Bieber returned your calls. You got to meet Justin Bieber. He couldn’t brag about you, could he? He couldn’t brag because he can’t retweet your…
T: Tweets because it says “@fucktyler” and…
Did he say that? Did he say, “Hey man, I can’t retweet you?”
T: It’s kind of common sense. I put two and two together. He’s chill though.
Did you think about getting another tweeter just for that so he could retweet, like, another tweet so it could link to the Odd Future tweeter?
T: Uhhh… what? I didn’t hear shit you just said .[laughs} That’s cool, though. [points to Nardwuar] This nigga tight, nigger. This nigga got money and bitches. Look at this nigga’s shirt, nigga.
