For months, Odd Future kept people at baited breath on where they would sign. From Tyler, the Creator strong arming the big wigs like Steve Rifkind over Twitter and more, the Cali collective were seemed inevitable to pull a fast one on record execs.

As a matter of fact, they did.

OF will operate under Odd Future Records and will sign with RED Distribution/Sony, giving them a distribution deal to simply put out everything they want under their own creative control. OF’s manager Chris Clancy commented on the deal with the following:

“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.. “
