Odd Future Side Group Sign With Indie
Weeks after fellow Odd Future member Tyler, the Creator signed a one-album deal with XL Recordings, OFWGKTA side group, MellowHype also inked on the dotted line with another indie, Fat Possum.
According to Billboard, the duo, consisting of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain, will re-issue its second album, BlackenedWhite, on the label. The group originally released BlackenedWhite on the Odd Future website last Halloween for free. A remastered reissue of the disc with bonus cuts will be available on CD and vinyl this summer.
Fat Possum is an independent label based in Oxford, Mississippi. It’s home to rockers Black Keys and The Walkmen. MellowHype is the only rap group on the label’s current roster.—Henry Adaso
