Odd Future's Tyler Earns Number 5 Album in the Country


 West coast collective Odd Future continues to garner heavy amounts of media attention not just for their controversial lyrics, but their critically acclaimed output over the last year as well. With the release of Tyler’s Goblin and the warm reception of OFWGKTA crooner Frank Ocean by music critics, these two young stars are currently responsible for igniting Odd Future’s current good fortunes. 


Tyler The Creator’s second LP is actually the rapper/producer’s first retail release (The first, Bastard, was offered for free online). British indie powerhouse XL Recordings invested in the 20-year Los Angeles native and it seems like their decision to do so is paying dividends. Goblin managed to debut at number five on the Billboard 200 charts and is also the number one R&B/Hip Hop and Independent album category leader. The album sold over 50,000 copies in its first week.
Congrats!
