Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, commonly shortened to Odd Future and abbreviated to OFWGKTA (styled OFWGK†Δ), is an American hip hop collective from Los Angeles, California. The collective was formed in 2007 and is led by rapper and producer Tyler, The Creator, and includes rappers Earl Sweatshirt, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, and Mike G, singers Frank Ocean and Syd tha Kid, producers Left Brain, Matt Martians, Pyramid Vritra and other non-musical members, notably Jasper Dolphin, Taco Bennett, L-Boy and Lucas Vercetti. There were also smaller groups inside the collective that were composed of Odd Future members. The three of these groups that are still active are The Internet, MellowHigh and The Jet Age of Tomorrow.

Odd Future broke into the mainstream in 2011 with Tyler's second studio album Goblin and its lead single "Yonkers", which spawned a viral music video. After the release of Goblin, the group experienced heightened popularity, peaking between 2012 and 2013 with the release of an album from the entire group (The OF Tape Vol. 2), Frank Ocean's Grammy Award-winning Channel Orange, Earl Sweatshirt's critically acclaimed Doris, and Tyler, The Creator's Wolf.

In 2014, rumours began to circulate that the group was disbanding, and while no one from the group confirmed them, Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt have both indiciated that Odd Future is most likely no more. Other events that pointed to the group's disintegration were Frank Ocean dropping his Odd Future-affiliated management, and Earl Sweatshirt not putting the Odd Future label on his most recent record, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt. On 2 May 2016, the official Twitter account of the group confirmed the group was still together, but just doing their own things.
