Odd Future Records Signs Tyler, The Creator Alter-Ego "Young Ni**a"

UPDATE: Was it a weekend prank, or is OFWGKTA going forward with a side-project?

Odd Future Records has announced its inaugural signing, inking its first deal with a rapper named Young Ni**a.

“While our original intent was not to sign anyone to the label we simply could not pass up the opportunity to sign somebody this talented. Young Ni**a embodies the DIY ethic and persona of Odd Future along with a commercial appeal that transcends demographics,” said the label’s publicist.

The newest signee will release his debut single at 3 p.m. PST (6 p.m. EST) on OddFuture.com.

(September 23)

UPDATE: As later audio posts indicated, Young Ni**a is actually an alter-ego of Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator. OFWGKTA's publicist and spokesperson provided a formal press release for the signing on Friday, in what Pitchform.com deems is a "Friday prank."

You can hear Young Ni**a's "Come Threw Looking Clean" , produced by Tyler.
