Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt and More Reunite to Perform at Closing of Famed Los Angeles Venue
After 12 years, Low End Theory night at the Airliner venue in Los Angeles is no more. The famed club held its final event on Wednesday (Aug. 8) but made sure to go out with a bang. On hand for the last night were Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, who had a mini Odd Future reunion with Syd, Hodgy Beats, Mike G and Left Brain.
It's been six years since the group last released The OF Tape Vol. 2, but Tyler, Earl and the rest of Odd Future made sure to treat their fans to a few of their hits on Wednesday night including the song "Orange Juice."
During the set, Tyler also took some time to reminisce about Odd Future's first Low End Theory show and recalled the $500 they were paid at the time. "[Daddy Kev] gave me $500 and we split that bitch in the bathroom of a Denny's on Crenshaw," the "Okra" rapper told the crowd. "That was the most money we ever made in our motherfuckin' life."
The night also included appearances from Ty Dolla $ign and A$AP Rocky, the latter of whom took the stage with Tyler to perform "Telephone Calls."
It's been three years since Tyler, The Creator said Odd Future was "no more" and during that time, we haven't heard much about the group. But last year, former member Syd spoke about the collective's breakup, saying touring may have played a role in their demise.
"Shit got out of hand when we started touring," she said during a Reddit AMA. "Most of us never had money and had never been on tour, and it was a lot to take in. We were kids. Still are."
