Supported by OF "pseudo" rappers Taco and Jasper, the Wolf Gang started its set guns ablaze. Without any introduction, they leapt on stage and started spittin' rhymes. Tyler performed songs off this year's Wolf and 2011's Goblin. He marched in place during "Radicals," and covered Nas and Frank Ocean's parts during "48."
Earl Sweatshirt rapped with Tyler, and Tyler contributed to his colleague's songs too. The crowd got exceptionally into the up-and-comers tracks, he's gearing up to release his sophomore album, Doris, and played a lot of new material--the standouts being "20 Wave Caps," which he performed with Domo Genesis, and "Whoa," the first single off his upcoming debut. As he rapped, Tyler rode around on his bike, waving to his fans.
