It looks like hip hop moguls Diddy and Jay-Z are on a mission to sign upcoming rappers Odd Future. According to multiple reports, the new group is also being sought after by other music executives.
Even Sean "Diddy" Combs is bowing to the wild demands of yet-to-be signed, punk-rock- hip-hop supergroup Odd Future. Music honchos including Roc Nation's Jay- Z, SRC's Steve Rifkind and Interscope's Jimmy Iovine have been fighting to sign the band described as an "urban Sex Pistols." The anti-establishment band has been having some fun by asking the bigwigs to meet them on their turf — the Supreme skateboard shop in Fairfax, Calif. Rifkind, who sources tell us is soon to make a formal offer, managed to get them to his office, but said frontman Tyler the Creator told him: "If you are serious about the meeting, I want Randy's Donuts, swivel chairs and a megaphone." Diddy — who's said to be "desperate to sign the group to prove that he's onto something hot" — set up a meeting between Tyler and Justin Bieber after the band demanded he deliver the pint-size pop star. A source said, "Tyler asked Diddy for access to Justin, so he pulled strings." A rep for Odd Future said, "Tyler did meet with Justin, and Diddy helped make it happen." (New York Post)
