At least their label did. The band’s new label. Odd Future Records, the umbrella label formed by controversial alternative hip-hop collective Odd Future.
The Sacto-based hardcore act is the most recent signing to the label, and will release an album called 119 this fall. Frankly, I have never been a fan of Trash Talk; there was just something about them I couldn’t get behind. This press release proved I was right to be skeptical.
The following press release was apparently written by Odd Future associate L-Boy:
“So them muthafuckas ova at Odd Future records done signed a fuckin’ group of crackas and niggas in a hardcore punk band called Trash Talk. I mean it makes sense since Odd Future fans is them white niggas anyway.
“Trash Talk is supposed to be releasing they album called 119 or some shit thru they Trash Talk Collective Label in the fall…don’t ask me what the fuck that means cuz I don’t fuckin’ kno. I asked Tyler’s trick ass what he thought about that shit and I really didn’t give a fuck so I’m not gone put that shit on here.
“Them Trash Talk niggas is currently over in Europe with them musty muthafuckers. If you give a fuck about they shit then listen to them niggas EP on iTunes called Awake or watch the fuckin video nigga.”
What the fuck is that? I mean…what the fuck is that? I’m not really down with the whole urban scene, but…is that supposed to resemble English?
It comes across as very confrontational. And dumb.
