According to multiple sources, Pharrell Williams has signed Odd Future's leader Tyler, The Creator to his "i am Other" imprint. If the reports turn out to be true, The Odd Future member would join artists including Cris Cab and Maxine Ashley on the label.
Previously Tyler, The Creator reportedly turned down multiple major label deals, deciding to release his sophomore album "Goblin" with a one-album deal through XL Recordings.
“They’re not getting the recognition in the mainstream media, but in the digital world they dominate – the 16-, 17-, 18-year-old virtuosos all over the world coming out of nowhere and just taking stake in their position,” said Pharrell. “The Others are multifaceted, pro-active people who live outside the box and aren’t confined by categories.”
