Vicious, vehement, and vexed. OFWGKTA are a group of rappers from L.A who range from 17 to 23. There is a huge buzz surrounding the group at the moment, they’re performing across the US, getting played on the radio and appearing on shows such as Jimmy Fallon. OFWGKTA are composed of those hyper-intelligent, nihilistic, indignant teenagers and it’s from this which comes their aggressive, self-referential lyrics. Their live performances are chaotic exhibitions of energy with members of the group darting round the stage and the audience moving like they’re at a Metal concert, not a rap show. Generating hype across the whole music industry, they are definitely something to keep your eye on.
