There's a pretty good chance that you've seen some iteration of Odd Future perform either live or on TV at this point. Either you're looking for it or you're not, you know? But it's still worth bringing up that Hodgy Beats has been a consistent backbone in almost every instance. Whether he's backing Tyler on Fallon, or stepping to the forefront with Left Brain as Mellowhype and Fat Possum labelmates Bass Drum of Death on this Fuel TV thing, all his performances have been intensely fine-tuned, like he's been performing live on the low for the last ten years or something. There's a difference between being born to perform and being born to rap, Hodgy is one of the rare dudes that is doing both extremely well.
