Odd Future may be finally inking a record deal after months of hype and speculation about who the collective of critical darlings would sign with. The winner? It seems that Sony’s RED Distribution arm may be the lucky company.
A deal with RED would allow the group to remain independent while being able to take advantage of Sony’s massive distribution system.
Odd Future’s manager, Chris Clancy, sent a statement to Rap Radar semi-confirming the deal.
“It’s based on getting the distribution deal we’ve always envisioned that allows the group to “sign themselves” to their own company and keep their masters. They will have 100% creative control of all aspects of their music, art, and release schedule with no 3rd party participation in outside business. Freedom and ownership was the whole point. Red and Sony know that its in everyone’s best interest to maintain the group’s authenticity and control. They built it, they deserve it. There’s no cheesy hooks or fluorescent liquor product placements in the works.. It’s about to be fun.. and different.. “
