Jay has had favorable things to say about Odd Future.
"[Odd Future has an] aversion to corporate America,” he once shared in an interview. “People have a real aversion to what people in power did to the country. So they’re just lashing out, like: ‘This is the son that you made. Look at your son. Look at what you’ve done.’”
This weekend, Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator posted an image on Instagram with Jay-Z after his New York date for his Legends of the Summer Tour with Justin Timberlake. That image can be viewed below.
