Music Video Monday: The Internet- “Cocaine”

The Internet is an offshoot of the OFWGKTA family and I don’t really have much to say about that except that Syd tha Kid is a great producer and the Internet has a great sound.

A lot of people hate Odd Future because a lot of the time it’s hard to accept hate speech as ironic, and I include myself in that group. Luckily, “Cocaine” gets across OFWGKTA’s trademark nihilism without really doing anything provocative, except for having a freaking weird music video. I see “Cocaine” as a sort of response to Enrique Iglesias’s “Tonight (I’m Fuckin’ You),” in that it takes the ironically blunt come-on to a frightening level, and the video drains the song of any ¬†glimmer of hope.
