So, to catch you up: On Monday night, Odd Future had a show in Detroit, and as is common with Odd Future shows, it ended in a near riot, when the crowd threw glass bottles at the group, nearly hitting Syd. But the story took a weird turn yesterday, when the Odd Future gang–particularly Mike G–started accusing Detroit rapper Danny Brown of at least being friends with whoever was throwing the glass bottles. Here’s the rundown of what Mike G said, followed by Brown’s Twitter recap, via WriteThing23:
Apparently, Odd Future THOUGHT it was Danny Brown or someone in his crew that threw the bottle. So Mike G took it upon himself to address Danny Brown. He says:
Last night really happened. I grew up listening to Detroit artists that had mainstream success. I had alot of respect for this city’s Underground. I showed this city so much love and one of your artist that seem to hate that kids are making it decides to throw bottles at a 19 year old female? Thats some weak shit. This nigga was talking about “Ya’ll saying fuck underground makes it hard for me to feed my family” If your music is any good, you shouldn’t need stunts like a dumb ass haircut to make money off of it. So, if “The Underground threw bottles”, Fuck Underground Hip Hop.
Here’s what Danny Brown had to say:
“@fucktyler welcome to detroit”
“@MikeGKTA came and holla’ed at nigga dolo …. I respect that shit” “
@marvwon underground hip hop thru bottles at them niggas … then them niggas took they shirt off” oh yea didnt pay to get in that OF show i was on “the list”. didnt even plan on goin to be honest …. took some mali and said fuck it. man i dont know nothing bout nobody throwing no bottles at the OF show aight … leave ma alone bout that shit #style … yall tryna get a nigga a case now …i think earl mom was throwing bottles … i aint have nothing to do wit that shit
Brown has thoroughly denied all involvement, and even retweeted Hex Murda, a Detroit hip-hop fixture, who claimed he did it. But either way, this is another beef between Odd Future and the underground hip-hop acts they’ve eclipsed without paying the same dues. All this does is illustrate how unfortunate it is Odd Future’s tour of mayhem has no stop near me. [DS]
