So according to insiders, Odd Future and team caught a $2.5 million check with that Sony/RED pressing and distribution deal. Now P&D deals are the only thing RED does, so the issues of masters ownership and control weren’t really a problem. But this is certainly a huge number for a crew with such a meteoric rise to recognition.

Meanwhile, Tyler the Creator appears on the cover of British music magazine NME’s irreverent “God Save Us From Kate & Wills” issue. The pull quote is only part of Tyler’s “never mind the bollocks” attitude….just watch the behind the scenes video from the cover shoot…

NME: Will and Kate and their upcoming wedding? No?
Tyler: Who the f–k is that? N—a, I’m from Compton.

Aside from the Royal Wedding talk, Tyler also gives the prerequisite oddball list of party favorites: little people, Waka Flocka, white women….cue kooky act, and go.
