#10. The Rise of Odd Future

Date: N/A

Although they first started buzzing last year, Odd Future took the world by storm this year. Things really took right after Tyler, The Creator debuted his amazing "Yonkers" video and a week later OF went and destroyed their set on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. For the uninitiated, Tyler and OF had finally arrived. They recieved a ton of critical praise, Kanye called "Yonkers" the video of the year, and next thing you know Odd Future started an independent record company with Sony/RED Distribution in a deal rumored to be worth $2.5 million. Tyler would go on to drop his first retail album Goblin, they seemingly dominated every single news cycle, and OF was established as the biggest new thing in hip-hop.
