A few months ago, Beats said the group had a Nas collaboration in the works.
In a recent phone conversation, Odd Future/MellowHype rapper Hodgy Beats revealed that he, Odd Future figurehead Tyler, the Creator, and OF R&B singer Frank Ocean are working on a song with Queensbridge rap legend Nas. (Nas had previously announced plans to collaborate with Frank Ocean.) Talking about the track, Hodgy mentioned that it’s still in progress and that he hasn’t met Nas yet; Ocean is the one putting the track together. Hodgy says, “The song is almost finished; we’re just waiting on a verse… I’m just stoked to be on a song with [Nas].” (Pitchfork)
Not only admired by Nas, Odd Future were recently co-signed by Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man.
“If I was Odd Future, I wouldn’t want to be compared to anybody. I love that group by the way, I love Odd Future. I like Tyler the Creator, that song ‘Yonkers,’ — they’re good, they’re different. It’s a breath of fresh air. Tyler the Creator. Very weird. But I’m into weird sh*t.” (Soul Culture)
