Last night, Tyler, the Creator unleashed the cover for the Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 which, despite its name, is a full-length album that will be released by Odd Future Records on March 20th. The grainy cover shot is a portrait of Tyler’s towheaded BFF, Lucas Vercetti. Odd Future are featured in the most recent issue of Thrasher—one of Tyler’s favorite reads—and it includes an extensive recap of their 2011 tour as told by Lucas. The North American leg of Odd Future’s 2012 tour starts March 9th in Tempe, Arizona. More dates here.
In a weird crossing of different FADER worlds, Alexi Wasser (who appeared in FADER #61 and our Explorer Series), purveyor of the blog I’m Boy Crazy, chose Lucas as part of her Dude of the Day feature last month. Watch her interview with him (and a cameo from Tyler) below.
