Odd Future chap's new track

Second in command of the OFWGKTA ship, Hodgy Beats is not exactly a slacker. With several mixtapes already made, not to mention his album with Left Brain as MellowHype entitled BlackenedWhite being reissued through Fat Possum this summer, his time to shine is slowly coming to a head. Courtesy of The FADER, check out Hodgy's solo offering, 'Mystery', below. Produced by BamBeeno and featuring a sample of the Moody Blues' 'Dear Diary', the sound of flutes flows rather bizarrely with Hodgy's forceful rap. They ain't called Odd Future for nothing. In an interview last week with MTV, Hodgy and Left Brain announced that along with the reissue of BlackenedWhite, the duo have plans to record two albums in 2011. As well as this, Hodgy is working to release his solo debut album this year. Excitement can start now.
